If you are into sport this is a must see A lot of info on AFL horse racing and cricket but also a great coverage of other sports Olympic and Commonwealth games. need to allow enough time to watch all the video displays and take in the interactive areas.

If you love sport, you have to go! It is simple really, the place is packed with sporting history and memorabilia so check it out. It takes a while to see everything, but that is part of the fun. Great visit.

This is a pretty good museum,and definitely worth a visit if you are a sports lover. For me the highlights were the collection of Olympic torches and the dressing room talk by a holographic Shane Warne (I'm not a big cricket fan, but it was interesting enough for me to sit through the whole thing). The interactive section was good... More

This is an extensive museum and, if interested in sport, I think you could spend the whole day here. Several sections including Olympics, cricket, Australian Rules, horse racing, Hall of Fame, boxing, plus more. Fantastic memorabilia and history. On non event days can also access the Melbourne Cricket Club museum. The Shane Warne theatre is amazing, you would think he... More

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.

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
