This is a great museum based at the MCG and if you are interested in sport you should not miss it when visiting Melbourne. We are a somewhat sport mad mob in this city!

Took my Father and Uncle, who was down from Sydney, here around Fathers Day for an afternoon. Both of them loved it, in fact my Uncle raves about it almost every time I see him. Highlight was possibly the tour of the MCG and MCC stand, including the Long Room which was thoroughly enjoyed.

We were recommended to go here by other Trip Advisors and they were so correct. A must do when also visiting the MCG. We met some real characters here who just loved to talk about the exhibits. The displays, especially the 3D ones, were so good. Don't miss it!

If you're a sports nut, then this is the place to visit when in Melbourne. The family and I could have easily spent more time here but time was against us.

We loved our tour of this and subsequently recommended it other people who all loved it also. So entertaining. The interactive part is great and if with competitive people then be sure to leave plenty of time to play all the games! You won’t want to leave.
