Location / Nearby New Zealand Cricket Museum
Established in 1987, the New Zealand Cricket Museum is located in the historic Museum Stand at Wellington's iconic Basin Reserve.The New Zealand Cricket Museum shows that there's more to cricket than Tests and tea breaks with items that show the game's development since its early-1800s introduction into New Zealand summers. Highlights include one of the world's oldest bats, and gear used by NZ legends like Bert Sutcliffe, Sir Richard Hadlee and Stephen Fleming.

A visit requiring advance planning
This is not a place you can visit without permission. Please seek permission or approval over phone / email if you are intend to visit in a non game day. One can donate optionally, I did because they stayed open just for me on the day of my visit. It is not just for the museum, but the whole Basin reserve ground view would be splendid if viewed from there. So please make a visit if you are a real cricket fan !
This museum is open to the public on weekends and game days. It is a optional donation to see it. (Should be compulsory)
Have lots of memorabilia and donated gear and trophies from past and current players.
Great slice of NZ cricket history
We really enjoyed our visit to the New Zealand cricket museum today. We’re both cricket fans and still found some new and interesting things among the displays. Great to finally see the Basin Reserve in the flesh too after previously seeing it only on T.V.
