From the moment you walk into the Rugby Art Gallery & Museum, displays are designed to stimulate your curiosity.

Steering you through Rugby’s history going back more than 2,000 years. What is the story behind the school cap? How does the spark plug fit in with the heritage of Rugby? What was life like for Roman residents?

As you walk through the museum, you can share the enthusiasm of the Victorian antiquarian Matthew Bloxam, who began to unravel the mysteries of Roman Tripontium.

Watch the video to find out about the painstaking research that brought the Tripontium Collection together, then discover the 2000year old pottery, jewellery and coins in the display.

In the Social History Gallery, reflect on the ups and downs of Rugby at work, at home and in the community over the past 200 years.
