One of the many things the British have brought to the island of Barbados is the love of the game Cricket. This museum is the ultimate memorial to the game on Barbados, with their legends and memories featured in exhibits. Any sports lover interested in cricket will enjoy this place. If you have never before witnessed cricket, then this museum may be a perfect first experience.
The museum space at Cricket Legends Museum is filled with memorabilia that dates back to the early 1990s. Autographed bats, uniforms worn in championship games, and, the museum's prized possession, the ball bowled by Wes Hall in the first hat-trick by a West Indian, are all on display here.
Set inside the beautiful and historic Herbert House, the Cricket Legends Museum makes the most of the space with several different designated displays. This includes the Legends Room, the Museum Gallery, and an event space. Most of the memorabilia is located within a brightly lit room painted with blue walls. The facility is spacious and kept clean, making it appear new every time you walk in.
