Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum

KidRated’s Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum Top Tips:


  • Travelling by tube? Southfields is a lot closer than Wimbledon.
  • Get some great souvenirs at the gift shop.
  • Queue up for Wimbledon during the tournament for a great if not, long day out.

Visit the most famous grounds of the sport developed by 12th-century French monks, that was originally a garden game but is now a multimillion profession practised by the likes of Serena Williams and Andy Murray.


Opened in 2006, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum provides a fascinating insight into the sport’s development throughout time.


As well as housing unique tennis memorabilia from as far back as 1555, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum uses images and videos to recollect some of the best match moments across the years.


The museum’s CentreCourt360 feature gives you the chance to view Centre Court, with a touch screen to teach you more about the match grounds where every move makes a difference.


Survey the majestic Championship Trophies reflecting Britain’s achievements across the years, or even meet John McEnroe’s ghostly apparition in his former changing rooms to hear him speak about his legendary opponents and the game itself (we are definitely serious!).

Booking Advice:


  • Buy Tickets Now to avoid disappointment.
  • Guided tours available in 8 different languages. Wunderbar!
  • During the championship, the museum is only open to ticket holders.
