Blades of Glory Cricket Museum, Pune

4.8
#4 of 11 in Museums in Pune
The entrance of Blades of Glory welcomes you with a summary of how a cricket bat has evolved over the last three centuries. This justifies the name of the gallery. Spread over around 4,000 sq ft, Blades of Glory displays rarest of rare of cricket memorabilia. The artifacts include personally autographed cricket-related items by the who’s who of the gentleman’s game.

Over the years, it is the willow-wielders who have stolen most of the limelight in the game of cricket. And the gallery lives up to its name by paying tribute to most of the batting greats. One of the most significant parts of the museum is the room dedicated to batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar. It features most of cricketing accessories Tendulkar has used over his long international career and 100 miniature bats dedicated to his ton of tons, each one of which bearing details of his 100 centuries in international cricket.

Besides, the gallery displays signed memorabilia by five triple centurions in Test cricket – Virender Sehwag, Michael Clarke, Mahela Jayawardene, Sanath Jayasuriay and Chris Gayle. And though the title of the gallery tilts in favour of batsmen’s achievements, the bowlers’contributions over the years have not been ignored.

Barring Fred Trueman, the former England paceman, and Malcolm Marshall,the great West Indies fast bowler who died of cancer at 41 in 1999, you will see autographed balls by each of the other 22 members of the 300-Test wickets’club. And when it comes to the 50-over format, each of the 11 members of the 300-wicket club in ODIs has a ball signed exclusively for the gallery.

And how can we forget that cricket, after all, is a team sport? The gallery displays numerous bats signed by various teams on special occasions. For instance, both India and England, who featured in the 2000th Test in the history of the game at Lord’s in July 2011, have signed a bat each; all the major participating teams in the 2011 World Cup, which was co-hosted b y India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh; 10 bats signed by each of the members of India’s 10 World Cup campaigns, etc. Make Blades of Glory Cricket Museum a centerpiece of your Pune vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Pune sightseeing planning website .

  • The museum is superbly maintained and they have a huge collection. The collection is presented in creative ways. However, the reason for rating it 3 was the guide. The guide was not at all interested in doing his job. He was just running us through stuff. And the place wasn't even crowded when we visited. I know it's his daily job and he must be getting bored, however, every person's visit must be made special. In every section, he was like 'you can click pics later, first let me tell you everything'. Rushed us through all the sections in 2 minutes. And no special information was given. He was just reading the titles below the frames. Everyone can do that. All in all, 5 stars for the collection, and -2 for the staff
  • The museum is amazing... But the presentation of information by the guide can be improved... Would like to see more audio visual information about the respective incidences on the screens to help the fans relive the memories. It is India's biggest cricket museum. It needs to be publicised more so that more number of people can visit the museum.
  • My friend who is mad for cricket took me there & after going there we came to know that entry fee is Rs100 per person so I told him I will be waiting outside but as you know this museum is maintained by a cricket fan Rohan Patil so my friend paid my fee also. By going in I discovered so many important things about cricket. When u visit & if you are true fan of cricket you will be the happiest person in world (for some time). Glory worth a try! I will not go in details because if I do it there will be no fun left...
  • Good place to relive the famous cricket events and players. Nice and good display of memorabilia. What was missing is stories behind each event maybe a note of video visuals.
  • Best Cricket Museum... Every Cricket Lover Must visit this.... If you’re a cricket fanatic then the Blades of Glory Cricket Museum is especially for you! Blades of Glory is a praiseworthy private collection of cricket mementoes and souvenirs of renowned international cricketers. It is said to be the first such museum of cricket memorabilia in Pune. Over the years, it is the willow-wielders who have stolen most of the limelight in the game of cricket. And the gallery lives upto its name by paying tribute to most of the batting greats. Every minute spent at this unique museum is worth it.
