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. 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.

Despite following cricket my whole life, I learnt a number of things at this museum which I didn't previously know. Was definitely worth a visit. I was expecting not many people to be there given the recent Australian cricket team debacle, but to my surprise the place was fairly crowded.

Wasn’t sure this would be any good with a 7 yr old non cricketer but it was fascinating and entertaining. The trip was more poignant with Warner live on TV apologising. My son came out fired up for cricket and we spent an hour knocking the ball about on the oval.

We visited this musem on March 9th. There is free parking in front of the entrance. There are different parts: the game; Donald Bradman and the Hall of fame.
Outside there is a little memorial park for Sir Bradman.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. The parking for the Bradman Museum extends right around the oval which is great!

The exterior is deceptive. It looks small but there is room after room of memorabilia and stories and hands on activities. We spent 3 hours looking around and did not see everything. If you have even a passing interest in cricket you must visit this museum.
