“Sports on Parade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

I work there as a guide and everyone I ask loves the museum as there is something there for everyone, even sports themed crockery and porcelain for the china buffs.

“Good time for all the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

We did both a tour of the MCG and entry to the sports museum. The tour was excellent and we even got to walk on the ground even though a cricket game was on. Great to be somewhere you have only seen on TV. The museum had lots of activities for kids and history for the adults. But expect to spend a few hours.

“Close your eyes and hear the rumble of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

An extensive passive display with some neat surprises of memorabilia. Plus some historical context to the sporting achievements spanning multiple endevours and decades. The true home of Test Cricket, AFL football - it all started on this hallowed turf
