This museum is a must visit for cricket fans like myself.

We were staying in Bowral and felt I had to see the museum of one of the greatest cricketers in the world. He had a batting average of almost 100.

You can easily spend a few hours here and here with lots of various videos and interviews with world cricketers as well as memorabilia.

It was great to see the cricket ground where Donald Bradman played club cricket.

I found this an interesting pkace although overpriced. Even though they advertised a cafe, it apparently closed about a year ago

This place is an amazing museum which celebrates the Gentlemen's game, not just the legend Sir Bradman. There is plenty to learn about the great cricketer, however, the museum expands to much more and even includes the actual world cup trophies worn by Australia

A nice place to visit with children to expose them to the history of the game and of its greatest batsman.
The place has a collection of memorabilia of the Bradman.

Two world cup trophies are on display. The visiting families are given a chance to hold them to take pictures holding it. The collection and presentations are good.

Ticket costs Aus$25 for adults and Aus$10 for children (5-12 years).

There is a coffee Shop which was not open during our visit. The place sells nice souvenirs and some books.

The museum is a bit faraway from Sydney City, about 110-130 km depending on the location in the city. Bowral has a train station about 1.2 km from the museum with train link to the Central station in Sydney. Long distance trains take 1 hour 40 minutes (there are just 2 in the morning). More frequent local trains (Line T8 to McArthur with connection to Bowral) take over 2 hours and 20 minutes. Some long-distance/local trains stop at Moss Vale with a bus (811) connection (10 KM) to Bowral. Car is the best and the fastest option to visit. One can combine this visit with a trip to nearby Fitzroy falls.

Well worth the time and visit. What a humble man and wonderful museum. So much information and a life time journey with his down to earth attitude. Overall the museum holds many awards/legends and the history of many superstars. Highly recommend.

Great museum covering all cricket history but also a reflection on cultural changes over the years. Recommend even if you aren't interested in cricket.

Ok, I’m a cricket nut but it is genuinely a feel good experience. A quirky highlight for us was a letter the Don wrote to a young fella thanking him for his kind thoughts. It was a treasured letter, spoken of fondly by him and his family. We know the young man through close family friends and I had nearly forgotten that family’s touch with greatness; he has now seen many summers and today is an old man. It was a pleasure to have that memory re-ignited.

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.
