A fact filled museum not to be missed if you are interested in sports. It is full of memorabilia from various sports including the Olympics. The best part is the interactive part where you can compete with your family at different sports such as kicking...More

I'm a sports tragic; the desire to know more, see more, hear more and experience more sport always draws me to the MCG. This is a great place to visit, on game day or ANY day!
