The Tasmanian Cricket Museum, at Hobart’s Blundstone Arena, formerly Bellerive Oval, showcases Tasmania’s cricketing history. Bellerive is ten minutes drive east of the Hobart city centre, on the eastern shore of the Derwent River.
At the Tasmanian Cricket Museum you can discover Tasmania’s rich cricket heritage from settlement to the present day. The museum features a collection of artefacts and memorabilia coupled with innovative displays, video and state-of-the-art interactive technology.
You can also take a tour of Tasmania’s world class cricket facilities at Blundstone Arena to see how a modern sporting venue operates. See the Oval from Richie’s Room, sit in the television studio high above the Southern Stand and inspect the players’ rooms and members’ facilities. You’ll also see Bellerive’s indoor practice wicket with its bowling and video equipment. Your tour includes entry to the Tasmanian Cricket Museum. Bookings are essential.
Scholars of the game will enjoy a visit to the Max Atwell Memorial Library at Bellerive Oval. Located adjacent to the Museum, the library features a collection of thousands of cricketing books and is open Tuesday to Thursday from 1000 until 1500, Friday from 1000 until noon and during Sheffield Shield and most other cricket games.
