Make your way to the Springbok Experience this Heritage Month for a world-class, modern interactive view of South Africa’s most powerful sport – rugby.

The attraction located in Portswood House at the heart of the V&A Waterfront features more than 60 audiovisual displays where visitors can watch the history of South African rugby unfold, set among cases displaying historic objects such as famous trophies, jerseys and boots.

The museum tells the story of South African rugby from the 1860s up to modern times. It also tells the “hidden” story of black rugby history and pulls no punches in placing rugby in South Africa’s social history as a sometimes divisive and ultimately unifying force.

The Springbok Experience comes complete with its own set of rugby poles and offers a fun and entertaining experience for the whole family.

It hosts corporate events as well.

There are games for children and adults alike where they can test their kicking, passing, fitness and reaction skills in the interactive “Springbok Trials” games zone. There is also a flagship Springbok shop.

The Springbok Experience is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 09:00 to 17:00. From 1 December to 16 January it will be open every day except on Christmas Day.
