Interactive games - Awesome. Nothing that we disliked. Make sure you have enough time on hand to spend at this museum. I did not so had to literally drag my kids out and had a flight to catch. Hologram of Shane Warne........5 Stars. My family are cricket fanatics so visited only those areas, wudn't know about other sports.

A wonderful museum full of amazing exhibits. Plenty of fun for kids as well with lots of hands on activities, but make sure you have plenty of time to see it all. An absolute must do for any sports fan while in Melbourne.

Have taken my grandsons many times and they always ask to go back! Spent 5 hours there on 2 occasions. The staff are very helpful and well informed and the interaction with the exhibits is brilliant

This is so interesting if you're interested in any kind of sport. There is so much history and information that you can easily spend several hours here. A great place to go if the weather is not so good for the outdoors.

We are from the US, so have very little exposure to Cricket, AFL, Rugby, etc. which made this museum interesting but for a different reason than for locals! For us, it ended up being such a fun experience to fill a couple hours one morning and my very athletic 11 year old had a blast trying netball, kicking AFL goals,... More

Watch Shane Warne's hologram, Dennis Lillee's aluminum bat, and many other historic artifacts. And that's just the cricket side of the museum. As the name suggests, there is a lot on other sports. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time and the museum was closing, so I had to leave.

We were at the MCG for the opening game of the AFL season and decided to buy tickets to the museum on the same day. There is a lot on display, seemed a little biased towards Victorians across all sports not just AFL. If you are in Melbourne and have a spare hour it is worth doing....

My wife and I visited the National Sports Museum as part of a tour package at the MCG. Really interesting, revealing and entertaining. There are many interactive exhibits and the whole museum is packed with fascinating items of memorabilia from all sports, although as you might expect, the emphasis is on the major 'aussie' participation sports. There is a great... More

The history of so many sports on display is so awe inspiring. It tells a rich history of life in general. I love coming here to reflect on the deeds that have gone on before us
