Bradman was born in Cootamundra on 27th August 1908 and died in Adelaide on 25th February 2001. However, Bowral was where he grew up from the age of two and where he played his first cricket. Therefore, the Bradman Museum is in Bowral, adjacent to the cricket ground where he played his first competitive match at the age of twelve and scored 115 not out, as well as taking eight wickets.
