We try to maintain a reliable opening schedule, and we usually do, but please bear in mind that we rely on a small number of volunteers who are not in the first flush of youth.

The museum opens on the first four day game of the season and closes for the winter at the end of October.

NON MATCH DAYS – we are open from 11.30am to 3.30pm Tuesdays to Fridays. Not open Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holiday Mondays.

FIRST CLASS four day games – we are open from 11.30am until the end of the tea interval.

50 OVER games – we are open from 11.30am until the end of the break between innings.

PLEASE NOTE – access to the museum on match days is available only to people who have paid for admission to watch cricket.

T20 MATCHES – we are not open because the Club imposes restrictions on access to the ground throughout the day and the interval between innings is short.

It may be possible to open at other times for groups of visitors. Please contact the curator by telephone of e-mail at least a day in advance. He is available between 10.30am and noon most weekday mornings.

The ADMISSION CHARGE is £1 for adults, 50p for under 16s and free for members of Somerset County Cricket Club.
