Rugby Art Gallery and Museum
The purpose built building housing it which was opened in 2000 also contains the town's library.
The art gallery hosts a nationally recognised temporary exhibition from the "Rugby collection of 20th century and contemporary British art", which includes prints from artists such as Stanley Spencer, Bridget Riley, L. S. Lowry and Lucian Freud. It also hosts collections of contemporary arts and crafts when the main collection is not available.
The museum hosts a collection of Roman artefacts, excavated from the nearby Roman town of Tripontium. And also has a display of the social and industrial history of Rugby. In December 2006, the Rugby World Cup was exhibited at the museum.
