The MCC Museum at Lord's Cricket Ground holds hundreds of artefacts related to cricket, from very old bats that look like boomerangs to one donated by Paul Collingwood just a few weeks ago. There is loads of art, from paintings of Victorian gents with huge mustaches to a very modern semi-clad oil painting of Brian Lara. You can have your picture taken with a life size cut out of Shane Warne, see the famous Ashes Urn, and a stuffed sparrow, killed when it was hit by a cricket ball.
To get into the museum you have to go on the Lord's tour. But this includes other areas of the ground including the Pavilion and the Long Room, the space ship style Media Centre and a walk through the stands. The guides are very informed and can give you info on match statistics, the architecture, and the history of Lord's.
The whole tour lasts nearly two hours and only costs £8 for adults. And you can have a pint in the Tavern pub when you finish.
