About this event

Fancy something exciting to do during your lunch break? Then look no further! Join us at the museum for our new bi-monthly free rugby league exhibition tours.

Our curators will guide you through our local teams’ trophy-filled histories and explain how Wigan, Leigh and Tyldesley broke away from the Rugby Football Union in 1895 and formed the Northern Union.

Learn about the early game, the rise of women in the sport, disability rugby, grass roots rugby, the international game and the all-important fans! See original memorabilia never seen before, and more unusual items including the original turnstile from Central Park.
