MCC Museum

MCC Museum

The MCC Museum is the world's oldest sporting museum and, to this day, it remains both world-class and world-famous.

While it contains a wide range of exhibits, it is best-known for being the home of The Ashes. Created in 1883, the Ashes urn was given to the England cricket captain, the Hon Ivo Bligh, after his side had triumphed against Australia in the 1882-83 series. On his death, in 1927, his widow, who had helped to create The Ashes in the first place, bequeathed the urn to MCC. Since then, The Ashes have remained on display at Lord's, where it is seen by the tens of thousands of people who visit the Museum each year.

Other popular attractions include the stuffed sparrow that was 'bowled out' by Jehangir Khan in 1936, and the copy of Wisden that helped to sustain EW 'Jim' Swanton throughout his captivity, in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp, during the Second World War.

The MCC Museum is open throughout the year, including on major match days at Lord’s. It is also a highlight of the MCC’s Tours of Lord’s.
