Overview

Found in the picturesque Southern Highlands town of Bowral where the famous Sir Donald Bradman grew up, the Bradman Museum is a state-of-the-art high-tech Museum that encapsulates cricket's history from its earliest origins through the Bradman era and World Series Cricket to the modern day and the introduction of T20. The Bradman Foundation, a non-profit charitable trust, was established in 1987 with the full support of Sir Donald Bradman AC to promote cricket as a valuable cultural and sporting force within the community. The Foundation prides itself on being the heritage custodians of Australian cricket. It preserves the heritage of the game while delivering Sir Donald Bradman’s commitment to the future of the game through development at youth level and within the wider community. The Foundation also often hosts exhibition matches and special events on the historic and picturesque Bradman Oval. A special focus by the Foundation is the development of youth through cricket.

Lots to see at this museum. I liked the way they had things for children to do as well as displays. It features displays about Bradman but also the history of the game and other famous cricketers. Great to go with friends.

Hi Jennifer, both of the videos were researched and put together by the curator, David Wells and Lightwell industries. Tony Greig, England Test captain during WSC, was very helpful in the putting together of the 17 minute video you would have seen in the theatre.
