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.

I was blown away by this museum. Given its location (in a fairly out of the way town in NSW), I was expecting something much more homespun. It is almost certainly the best cricket museum in the world - we have nothing on a par...More

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.

Located on route from Sydney to Canberra. Free parking on site. Allow at least 2 hours, more if you are a cricket fan.

Thanks Bob. Stumps Cafe is on site too. So if you are travelling from Sydney or Canberra you can have a cuppa, morning tea or lunch before heading into the Museum. The Museum is definitely bigger than people think, thanks for the 5 stars!!!!!

This is a very interesting place for the cricket lovers, even if you do not like cricket its a must. The history on Don Bradman is amazing. The coffee shop next door is also very good to stop off for a bite to eat.

We often hear that "non-cricket lovers' understand the game and gain an appreciation for it once they have visited the Bradman Museum. We often have volunteers visiting the museum and they love to share their knowledge of the area to visitors.
