I have 5 children aged between 6 and 15 and it's always difficult finding activities that they all enjoy. The National Sports Museum, however, keeps them all entertained for hours. The "experiences" with professional sports men and women during school holidays is well worth the small extra charge on top of entry. The staff who guide and assist are courteous... More

You can take a few hours to soak the whole space in or just focus on your own favourite sports but its worth the effort. The holographic presentation with Shane Warne is well implemented. The cricket clubs section is manned by volunteers with a wealth of knowledge.

If you are into sport this is a must do. The amount of things to see and do are unbelievable. Try and time your visit when there is nothing on at the G and to a tour over the MCG, a great afternoon in Melbourne

I'm a huge fan of sport and had a great time exploring the National Sports Museum. I loved their Olympic exhibition and found the whole museum to be interesting and innovative. Staff were very friendly and welcoming too. Would highly recommend whilst in Melbourne!

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.
