Yorkshire Cricket Foundation Museum

We’re extremely proud of Yorkshire’s fine cricketing tradition and we’re sure you are too. What better way to celebrate our county’s sporting triumphs than through a visit to the Yorkshire Cricketing Museum!

Divided into nine zones, the museum takes you right back to the origins of the sport, guiding you on a journey through to modern day. Through the use of interactive displays, interesting facts and memorabilia you won’t find anywhere else, it is sure to capture your imagination and leave you thirsty for more.

Each domestic match day of the season our museum doors are thrown open to the public, and what’s better is that it’s FREE! We do ask for donations (suggested £3 each) which helps with the upkeep of the museum and ultimately goes towards improving your experience here with us.

Mobile Museum

In 2013 we acquired funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a fabulous mobile museum!

The mobile cricket museum tours the county visiting schools, cricket clubs, community events and businesses educating people about the rich cricketing history in Yorkshire.

Those visiting the museum have the opportunity to see items of memorabilia, watch videos, take part in interactive quizzes and take on our stick cricket challenge.

Over the last few years the museum has been a regular fixture at the Scarborough Cricket Festival as well as the Great Yorkshire Show. We were also part of the Tour De France Grande Depart at York Racecourse.
As well as these fantastic events we have supported many club and school events, including the Yorkshire T20 warm up fixtures.

If you’re interested in booking the mobile museum please get in touch and tell us about your event.
