Visit the iconic New Zealand Rugby Museum in Palmerston North with its new gallery now open. The home to the first museum devoted to the oval ball - this is a must see!

You'll be rewarded with a trip back in time exploring the rich history and folklore of the nation's mighty game with an unmasking of its rugby heroes and legends. Get a feel for the real New Zealand by learning how its rich rugby heritage has shaped and been shaped by our country.

It's not every day you can see the nation's treasures in their reality, from the first 'fern', the oldest All Black jersey and the oldest rugby ball to current All Black star Dan Carter's boots!

And test out your rugby skills - kicking, tackling, leaping, sprinting or pushing - in the 'Have a Go' area. If the kids are with you, they'll love to imitate their heroes!
