The Rugby League Museum public programs is now officially under way with the Heroes and Legends experience being the first of many to be rolled out this year.
The Heroes and Legends experience is a unique collaboration between a current NRL star (Hero) and an ex-player from a past era (Legend). The engagement looks to open a dialogue between the past and present and allow Museum patrons to hear firsthand players sharing their experiences and memorable moments about the game of Rugby League.
The Rugby League Museum will be open to the general public prior to all scheduled NRL fixtures at Allianz Stadium in 2013. A new Heroes and Legends partnership will feature at each of the game day events with limited numbers. Times will vary depending on game day schedules so please visit nrl.com for updates.
To book your place to visit the museum, please purchase through Ticketek. Tickets are only $5 per NRL Club Member or $7 for Non-Members, and all money raised goes to the Rugby League Museum Public and Education Programs.
