The R&A is pleased to welcome visitors to The R&A World Golf Museum.  Re-named and re-branded to connect the Museum more visibly to the organisation of which it is part, namely The Royal and Ancient Golf Club and The R&A, the Museum offers a fresh and exciting approach to the display and interpretation of golf's history.  

There's a lot to explore at this 5 star visitor experience. Our new immersive galleries bring the Past, Present and Future of Golf to Life Around You.  Thousands of fascinating objects, some on display for the first time and dating back over 400 years, bring to life hidden stories of the game and it's personalities.  

Our fabulous Shop and rooftop Café are open for all to enjoy. 

Step outside and you are just yards away from the 1st tee of the iconic Old Course. Welcome to St Andrews.
