Been to many Sports Museums worldwide. This is one of the best at the MCG, even if you do not understand or like Aussie Rules Football or Cricket. Take the tour of the MCG as well.

We did the National Sports Museum tour at the end of our MCG tour (combined entry of $30.00) and it is well worth the visit. This is beautifully presented and the items on display are just amazing and full of so much history. It is not all just cricket, but the uniqueness of some of the cricket items in the... More

Make this part of your trip to MElbourne, particularly if you're into Cricket or Football history. This place is filled with that history. Do spend a couple of hours. It's a bit tricky to find, but well worth it.

A lot bigger than you think. With all the sports available and the hands on activities that are available, you could easily spend 2 hours in there. If you are not interested or have no knowledge about a particular sport, they can be easily avoided.
