Rare Bradman Collection has new home at Oval

27 November 2013

Bradman

The Donald Bradman Collection re-opens at the recently redeveloped Adelaide Oval, just in time for the Ashes test match.

The collection consists of rare photographs and memorabilia, multi-media platforms such as interactive audio and visual historical content, and other interactive displays.

It has been curated from personal selections from Bradman and culled from his private keepsakes, including items such as newspaper clippings.

On loan from the State Library of South Australia (and now surrounded by glass instead of wire for better viewing), the collection will be a major drawcard for cricket enthusiasts around the world.
One of the new features is a timeline that puts the various stages of Bradman's seminal cricketing career in context.
The collection is now housed in the Visitor's Centre on Level 1 of the Southern Stand at the Adelaide Oval.

Sir Donald Bradman played for twenty years and had a batting average of 99.94.
