The Springbok experience


Karen Spolander

Right in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, fans of rugby will find a sporting museum that tells the history of South Africa through the eyes of rugby, from the 1860s right up to modern times. The Springbok Experience was nominated for an International award in the 2014 Museum + Heritage Awards in the UK.

The interactive rugby museum is an ideal visit for locals, international touring groups and family outings, as well as schools and sporting groups - rugby, cricket, cycling, athletics, hockey, tennis, swimming, netball teams etc. visiting Cape Town. This modern interactive rugby museum with 65 audio visual screens is a must-do attraction when in Cape Town. Adults, senior citizens and children alike can enjoy testing of kicking, passing, fitness and reaction skills which is challenging yet plenty of fun. Have you tried our Hands Off Challenge?
