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. 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.

Much more than I expected, Bradman Museum is well worth a visit, call in if you are visiting Bowral you won't be disappointed. Lots of memorabilia and old film footage a must to see for the cricket enthusiasts and interesting if your not.
Also the coffee shop has good coffee and the best scones.

Chef thanks you for the lovely compliment. Scones are a specialty of Stumps Cafe.

We are continually updating the Museum to make it culturally and historically relevant to all Australians.

I'm not a cricket fan but the Bradman Hall of Fame was one of the best museums I have been to.
The surroundings and layout of the exhibits was excellent.

During the planning phase of the International Cricket Hall, the Bradman Team worked very closely with a media design studio for museums and public spaces. Thank you for your feedback.

if you are a cricket fan you must make the effort to see the home of Donald Bradman and see where the great man started his career. It is a great pleasure to go and see where he started from and see the museum.

Hi Bazza, We are very proud to be able to run the Bradman Museum where he grew up. I hope you had a sun-filled day so you could get down to the Oval!

The Bradman museum is a facility dedicated to the game of cricket but has something for anyone who is interested in Australian sporting history. The museum is broken into 3 sections - the first explains the game of cricket through very good interactive displays, the second is devoted to Don Bradman and his contemporaries and the third traces the development of Packer's World Series Cricket through to international players of today. Through its displays and memorabilia it captures the feeling of times past.

It is easy to spend 2 hours + going through the halls and there are plenty of activities to amuse young children and teenagers as well as the oldies.

Bowral is a town worth visiting for its cafes and buildings but the Bradman International Hall of Fame is a must see in its own right.

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.
