The art gallery hosts a nationally recognised temporary exhibition from the "Rugby collection of 20th century and contemporary British art", which includes prints, drawings and paintings by artists such as L. S. Lowry, Stanley Spencer, Paula Rego and Graham Sutherland. It hosts other collections when the main collection is not available.
The museum hosts a collection of Roman artefacts, excavated from the nearby Roman town of Tripontium. It also has a display of the social and industrial history of Rugby. In December 2006, the Rugby World Cup was exhibited at the museum. The facility became the permanent physical home of the World Rugby Hall of Fame in November 2016.
