I went with a school group, but I would love to take my family. There are awesome interactive activities you can do and you can soak up the history of sport. Big section on cricket and AFL.

The National Sports Museum is Australia's home of the Glorious Sports History that they have. Everything that the Australians have won in the past so many years finds its place in the museum. It is a must visit for every Indian.
