I am a mad cricket fan, particularly of West Indian cricket, so this was brilliant for me. Well laid out with feature rooms on Gary Sobers and Hall and Griffith. Lots of brilliant photographs and interesting newspaper articles. I would say its perfect for someone in their 60s (like me) who is keen on the West Indies, so somewhat a... More

We walked here from the centre of Bridgetown. My husband is a cricket fan and you need to be to get anything from the visit. It is free and some interesting facts to read. There is a coffee area which also serves breakfast & lunch round to the rear of the museum. Photos are allowed and you can buy some... More

Our family of 4 visited the Cricket Legends of Barbados Museum in January 2015 whilst visiting Bridgetown on a cruise ship - and we loved it! Full credit goes to Alex - can't remember if he is the manager or the curator. He was so passionate about cricket and took us through the Museum on our own personal tour. To... More

We were driving past this venue and my wife, knowing that I am a cricket fan, suggested we stop in to have a look. It was a very average collection of memorabilia and photos of past West Indies glory days, very static, and unless you knew a lot about West Indies cricket in the 60s, 70s, and 80s you wouldn't...

Sorry - this is very average. But you may enjoy it if the 60's and 70's are fresh in your mind. Great for me, but my cricket mad kids thought it was rubbish. I loved the room about Gary Sobers. But the staff were uninterested and in fact completely disappeared, so we left...

I visited the Parliament and saw the Tour advertised and thought at US$5 Barbados $ 10 to be excellent value. This equates to about £3. The Parliament system was adopted from the British and this is all explained during the interactive tour. One then goes into the Legends part and I thought they must be all cricketers but no I...

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
