The CC4 Museum of Welsh Cricket

Welcome to the homepage of the new website for the CC4 Museum of Welsh Cricket, a facility housed in the National Cricket Centre at Sophia Gardens – the home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club and The Welsh Fire.

Opened in 2012 thanks to generous funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Visit Wales, the Museum is an award-winning facility devoted to celebrating the proud history and rich heritage of cricket in Wales. In 2019 the Museum became recognized by the Arts Council as the first fully accredited cricket museum in the UK.

You can now enjoy online a taster about some of the fascinating information which the Museum contains, as well as a glimpse of some of the archive photographs of Welsh cricket housed in the Museum’s collection.
