About

Very well done. Some very interesting exhibits and displays. The main auditorium area is very impressive with towering ceilings and a lot of interactive exhibits. Quite a reasonable entry fee and lots of parking available. The restaurant has quite a good menu and the gift shop is stocked to overflowing.

We love everything about Cricket and this museum has great graphics, stories and exhibits. The Bradman section just adds to the legend and the more we learn the more we appreciate just how good a player he was. The section on World Series Cricket rekindled so many memories. It was good to learn about Tom Wills and his contribution to the Game and also Australian Rules. The Oval is beautiful and we saw it on a glorious sunny day. One day we will return to watch a Match.
Oh yes we lifted the World Cup!!
A perfect way to spend 21/2 hours

Spent nearly two hours here viewing the exhibits. Seriously good for a cricket tragic like myself and a long suffering cricket widow for a wife.
Lifting the World Cup was fun as it was so heavy. Lots of ancient cricket gear to view.
Amazing to see how bats, balls, gloves, pads etc have developed over the years.
Also watched some of the game on the oval.
Bit overpriced at $25 pp for entry but as a one off it was ok.

If you’re either a cricket fan or not, this museum is one worth a visit. Don Bradman was simply a gentleman who happened to be a great sportsman and his life story along with the various other cricketing memorabilia is very interesting. The museum has a nice little cafe attached and the staff are very accommodating. Check it out if you are in the southern highlands.

Great museum with a lot to see and take in for the Cricket tragic, especially the history of the sport. A lot of details about World Series too. You can easily spend two hours taking it all in.

Fantastic museum and I do not follow the sport regularly.

However, the museum provided excellent information about the game and its history.

Do we like cricket - we love it both my wife & myself :) :)

We were happily greeted by a lovely lady at the entry point who was being run off her feet by booked guests in the sit down area wishing to change their booking numbers etc. but she was unflappable :)

Such an experience to go through the various areas & origins -- up to World Series cricket and beyond to now our 'modern era'

Totally very well laid out & great information on all the exhibits

Yes and as advised on our arrival - don't think you are gong to get out before the 2 hour period :)

Thank You for a great experience today!

We called in to see the famous ground and museum. It was really well done and worth a look. $25 each was reasonable given we spent a couple of hours there.
