Established in 1987, the New Zealand Cricket Museum is located in the historic Museum Stand at Wellington's iconic Basin Reserve. The Museum shows there's more to cricket than Tests and tea breaks, with exhibits that highlight the game's development since its early 1800s introduction to New Zealand summer.

Check out one of the world's oldest bats alongside the bat Grant Elliott used to get the BLACKCAPS to the 2015 Cricket World Cup final. See the biggest trophies won by the BLACKCAPS and WHITE FERNS and read stories of legends like Martin Crowe, Debbie Hockley, Bert Sutcliffe, Trish McKelvey, Brendon McCullum and Sir Richard Hadlee. You can even pose for a photo with the current BLACKCAPS' skipper!

Open every match day at the Basin Reserve and by arrangement. Visit http://nzcricketmuseum.co.nz/visit/ for details on special opening hours or to book your visit.
