Rangers Museum

Rangers Museum

Rangers Football Club, Glasgow

This exciting new museum celebrates the story of Rangers Football Club, from humble beginnings in 1872 to its growth as one of the world’s most successful clubs today. The Museum offers a dynamic, immersive experience, with visitor participation and interaction at its heart.

Our involvement started with the development of an Interpretation Plan for the new museum and the Club’s desire to conserve and display its collection. The ability of the Museum to attract a wide and diverse audience, including day visitors, UK and international tourists as well as football fans, was central to the interpretation strategy. The Museum also explores the Club’s wider social and sporting history, extending its appeal to a broad audience.

Visitors enter the Museum through a tunnel featuring dynamic film content, lighting effects and a specially commissioned soundtrack. A thematic approach is taken throughout combining the latest in museum tech with beautiful object-rich displays and engaging graphics. Visitors can test their footie skills against each other in Play the Rangers Way, design their own strip, assemble their Dream Team and test their knowledge in the Ultimate Quiz. Our Pose with the Players interactive allows visitors to take home a photo of themself with their own selection of Rangers players. Families and children are also at the heart of the museum, and kids (and grown-ups!) can enjoy following Broxi Bear’s Museum Trail, collecting stamps along the way.

Visitors can take a selfie with a life-sized line-up of Rangers players from 1877, whilst the model of Ibrox designed in the 1920s forms a centrepiece in the story of Ibrox’s development.

A central display case holds an impressive selection of Club jerseys through the decades, and a digital interactive allows visitors to design their own strip.

Object displays, film, interactives, interviews and graphics combine to tell the stories of the Club’s Legendary Managers.

Quite simply the museum is hairs on the back of the neck stuff from beginning to the
end.
