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.

A very interesting way to spend an hour or 2 before the big game at the 'G'. I thought the hologram display with Shane Warne was excellent as too the football, horse racing & Olympic exhibits.
