What an excellent museum. Whether you are into sport or a history buff or even just an Australian, there is something in here for everyone. The interactive section is great for kids of all ages. Highly reccommend you do both the MCG and NSM at the same time, well worth the entry fee and allow a good few hours to... More

Great experience if you love your sport, I should have allowed more time to take it all in as left it to late in the day, I'd say allow a couple of hours

Allocate a good two hours to look at all the Australian sporting memorabilia for AFL, Cricket, Olympics and Racing. Well set out and if the MCC gallery is open go and see the Alan Border portrait, His head moves when you do!

If you love your sport then this is the place to go. Everything from cricket to footy, racing and the Olympics, including some memorabilia you will never forget. Some great interactive activities as well - just make sure you go outside the school holidays so you can get a turn!

Excellent museum full of Australian sporting memorabilia with an obvious focus on football (aussie rules) and cricket. Make sure you get the MCG tour! Very comprehensive.

Took two eleven year old boys. Worried that it would be boring. The exact opposite. I am not into sport but I enjoyed it. The interactive area where both adults and children can try out various sport challenges was great fun and had them totally involved. We went there first before looking at the rest of the museum. We arrived... More
