Wow! What a treat we had when we visited the Cotswold Cricket Museum on Friday. My husband & I are huge cricket fans, me especially, and we found this amazing collection of memorabilia one of the best we've ever seen on our travels around the world. My husband spotted this attraction whilst browsing the internet looking for places to see... More

A damn lot of history of the local area and lots of photographs that tell "the story" also old Balls used in local games names of some of the locals who made it into the English cricket team pictures of the pitches that were used.The museum also had items for sale to the real collector

I've just visited the museum and was told that it may have to close at the end of December. As a keen cricketer I find this very sad as the work that has gone into making this one of the best memorabilia collections of its kind, even in my opinion better that the museum at Lords.

I sent my mum and dad here as my mum loves to go for afternoon tea and my dad loves cricket so a bonus! The food was lovely and the museum was interesting. No toilets is a big let down and my dad had to walk 5-10 mins (he is 70) to the local toilets across the square.

What a combination, cake, coffee and tourist info downstairs - cricket memorabilia upstairs. Not for cricketphobes (who can sit on a sofa and drink tea) but for the generally interested it will keep your attention for at least half an hour. For those interested in sport and cricketphiles (like me) it could be the whole afternoon. I only had 2... More

What a wonderful find. Took my husband there on a miserable rainy afternoon expecting to be there for say an hour and two/three hours later still there! The exhibits are so interesting and the quiz sheet you are given when you go in make it fun to find the answers. The museum is bright and cheerful and the staff friendly... More

Owner thinks he is better than he is. Place over crowded, service poor. Don't try combining a tourist info service with a boring museum and no local knowledge.

A small but excellent museum for cricket lovers such as myself. Particularly enjoyed the speeches by Don Bradman and the items concerning Walter Reginald Hammond, Tom Graveney and Jack Russell. Indicates which County I follow !!

What a great place to loose yourself for a couple of hours. Yes I am a cricket lover but I would hazard a guess that even if you are not this is a real gem of a museum just from a social history perspective. It is not over facing or onerous it is all there to read, review, watch and... More

Stopped off on the way to Lower Slaughter, and noticed signs for this museum as leaving the car-park; With the excited little boy look on my husbands face there was no way I could say no to a visit. The museum is housed up-stairs above a tea-room and the information centre, and the husband and wife team are kept busy... More
