This museum covers all sport, cricket, football, cycling, tennis, horse racing and a great olympic display. We arrived when the doors opened and left at closing time. You can spend all day or just a couple of hours. Fabulous museum for sports fans.

A fascinating visit for any sports enthusiast and I would recommend using the audio guide as even though I'm a sports fanatic, I learnt heaps from the tour.

We took our 8 & 14 year old children to both the MCG & sports museum package and were thrilled that the experience was much better than expected. Our tour through the MCG was guided by Bernard, a sprightly 80 plus yr old MCG member who provided an in depth behind the scenes tour onto the field and through the... More

This is one of the main attractions in Melbourne housed in the Melbourne cricket grounds. There is the Cricket Hall of Fame, Racing Gallery and the 3D technology brings Shane Watson into life. The history of cricket is interesting and if you are a cricket fan or not you will love this. There are other sections dedicated to Olympics and... More

Been twice and still world class! the AFL section needs to be updated but it is hours of fun! The people that work there are so helpful and explain to you where everything is when you enter. So much has been acheived in Aus, be proud! Take your kids to inspire them to be the next Gary Ablett Jr!

You could spend the whole day here. We took the MCG & museum package and the experience was much better than expected. The tour through the MCG was in depth behind the scenes, we felt like honoured guests, shown through the most privileged lounges and learnt its prestigious history. We are not cricket fans and yet found it extremely interesting.... More

If you are an Aussie, it's a must see for you! Otherwise, it's a good to see and know many articles and facts about Australian sports, specially cricket and Olympics. You don't need to be an Aussie, or even a cricket fan to enjoy every bit of the hologram presentation of Shane Warne, the iconic bowler of Australia! I was... More
