Owner description: 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.

Interesting insight into the man, the sport and the overall historical context.
Allow at least 45 minutes or for a thorough viewing, allow 90 minutes. Can take a break at the cafe within the complex.

A big variety of items to look at and read about. Not only is this a museum for Don Bradman fans but also for all cricket fans as there is a wide variety of items covering many different eras of crickets. The cricket ground is very picturesque and a lovely spot to sit to enjoy a coffee afterwards. Your ticket will give you access all day if you wish to leave and return later in the day.

Much la her than I expected, the exhibition not only features the playing history and life of Don Bradman, but the history of World Series Cricket and the history of cricket in general.

Suitable for all ages, wheelchair and stroller friendly, there is heaps to see, read, videos to watch, memorabilia donated and lent to the museum to keep you occupied for at least 2 hours if not longer.

If you don't like cricket, it may not be your cup of tea, but my husband and I love it and it exceeded our expectations. Well worth the $20 entry fee.

Visited with my cricket obsessed 10yo son & we were impressed with the quality of the entire venue. Interactive displays, lots of history & contemporary information, it was a lovely way to spend a few hours. Cafe food was excellent and all the staff we encountered throughout were pleasant & helpful. Lots to interest all generations here.
