This is the National Sports Museum. It has exhibits on all the sports. It is located at the Melbourne Cricket Green. You should purchase a combined ticket to see the Stadium and the Museum. I especially enjoyed the Olympic exhibit and the Horse racing exhibit. There is a full skeleton of a race horse. There are interactive exhibits. There are... More

Although it is called the National Sports Museum it is heavily focused on AFL and cricket, with much less attention given to other sports. Having said that, it is a fascinating place. The highlight was doing the MCG tour on the combined ticket. The volunteer guide loved his cricket and the ground, and this showed in the highly informative and... More

We bought a combined ticket (MCG tour + Sports Museum) and it was money well spent (not expensive, really). All sports were covered. Best attraction was Warnie's hologram! Ok you might not like him but have to love the technology that delivered him, lifelike and so very THERE, in front of you. We saw people who stayed to see it... More

I think it must be one of every Australian sports enthusiasts goal is to visit and see a game at the iconic MCG. An added bonus though, is the wonderful ''Sports Museum'' located beneath the stands. This museum covers a multitude of sports (Olympics, Cricket, All Football codes, horse racing etc.) and has historical exhibits all beautifully presented and easily... More

Much enjoyed our visit to the National Sports Museum at the MCG. This was 'just' an add on to the MCG tour but we enjoyed this even more. Well worth the extra.

Located within the iconic MCG, this is a great sporting museum, with few peers (especially for the cricket fan). Highly interactive for kids too.

Just brilliant , great to see such a full sporting history of another country , but the interactive part of the museum is a brilliant compliment and superb for children and adults who have never grown up - combine it with the MCG tour

If you have any interest in sport, do yourself a favour and visit this fantastic museum. Suitable for all ages, and includes a great variety of interactive exhibits for the young, and the not so young. A wonderful collection of memorabilia and information covering all sports, including the Olympics, horse racing, AFL, cricket and so much more. Please allow for... More
