Ellis Park Rugby Museum

In 1995 Nelson Mandela took to the pitch at Ellis Park Stadium wearing a Springbok jersey to present the Rugby World Cup Webb Ellis trophy in what was a key symbolic moment of post-apartheid reconciliation, later made internationally famous in the Hollywood film Invictus.

You'll find a charming and highly informative museum here (open weekdays 10:00-15:00, entrance via main gate) containing the biggest collection of Springbok memorabilia, and stadium tours can also be arranged.

In 2014 the stadium was renamed Emirates Airline Park. Call ahead to book your museum visit and to arrange a stadium tour. Contact Andre Bester at +27 61 400 4883.




Open 10:00–15:00. Closed Sat, Sun. Call in advance to book a visit.
