Very helpful staff, we able to sort out all of our shopping requests and able to reserve the missing items at their sister store at the Airport and as a bonus I was able to meet Sir Gary Sobers on the steps of the Cricket Legends of Barbados Store. WOW

As others have noted this museum isn't well advertised but is worth the trip for any fan of international and local cricket. The staff are extremely helpful and you are likely to be there on your own. The museum also doubles as a shop for mostly cricket wear and bizarely some F1 caps as well. Prices of sportswear are staggering,... More

Unfortunately the museum isn't well advertised as it really is well worth a visit if your a cricket fan. We were the only people in there and the guide was happy to show us round and talk about cricket. They were still adding to it when we visited in December 2013 so would like to return again to see how... More

A museum of cricket should be buzzing with life in Barbados. However, the museum seemed to be quite poorly advertised and had few visitors. The actual exhibition is quite interesting, with a comprehensive history of the Caribbean and Bajan game. However, there is a lot to read and I could see under 14s getting quite bored quickly. There were no... More

We visited here after looking around the Kensington Oval, which is literally across the road. I was a big Malcolm Marshall fan and was looking forward to reading more about him here. We were the only people there and charged 10 US dollars each. The staff here were very helpful and pleasant. However, the exhibits and memorabilia is a bit... More

Museum is located about 200 metres down and across the road from Kensington Oval and about 7/800 metres outside of the centre of town. Cost is USD10 per person. The museum covers a couple of levels. In the basement level there are a lot of photos and newspaper cuttings highlighting, particularly, the feats of Barbadian as well as other West... More

If you are a cricket fan and remember the great names of West Indies cricket then this is of great interest. There is a lot Of memorabilia but also history of some of these great players. Sobers, hall, Haynes& greenidge, garner and many more. Across the road from Kensington oval. I was amazed that all these great players came from... More

Not being familiar with the game of cricket or the West Indies place in it, we were anxious to get a feel for it by visiting this museum. We were the only visitors there and they opened the museum for us. Aside from old sweaters, bats and balls, there really isn't much to this place. It would have been helpful... More

We were the only people there, charged 10 US dollars each. They did at least turn the lights on. In all honesty if you know your cricket this is a waste of time,a few exhibits and an old radio commentary sums it up. A tour of the adjoining stadium would be much better

I guess we weren´t the most ordinary visitors here, as we knew absolutely nothing on cricket before. We were just walking by towards the Rum distillery from the city centre, when we noticed the museum on our left hand side almost opposite the Kensington oval cricket field. We decided to stop there. Now later on looking at their website, I... More
