The Basics

Established in 1977 and significantly revamped in 2006, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum has since grown into one of the world’s most important collections of tennis artifacts and resources. Items on display date as far back as the 16th century and include everything from historical rackets to items donated by world-famous players. A number of interactive displays, including a virtual-reality experience, are also offered. Visitors can purchase museum entry (which includes a 10-minute tour of Centre Court) or upgrade to a combination museum entry-and-tour package, which also includes an in-depth, 90-minute guided tour.

Admission can be booked in person or online. The museum is also conveniently included in the London Pass and iVenture Card plans.
