Been twice and still world class! the AFL section needs to be updated but it is hours of fun! The people that work there are so helpful and explain to you where everything is when you enter. So much has been acheived in Aus, be proud! Take your kids to inspire them to be the next Gary Ablett Jr!

You could spend the whole day here. We took the MCG & museum package and the experience was much better than expected. The tour through the MCG was in depth behind the scenes, we felt like honoured guests, shown through the most privileged lounges and learnt its prestigious history. We are not cricket fans and yet found it extremely interesting.... More

If you are an Aussie, it's a must see for you! Otherwise, it's a good to see and know many articles and facts about Australian sports, specially cricket and Olympics. You don't need to be an Aussie, or even a cricket fan to enjoy every bit of the hologram presentation of Shane Warne, the iconic bowler of Australia! I was... More

What a great Museum, to call it a Museum is almost a wrong description, it's a great way to learn and be entertained at the same time. The Olympic section was so informative and learn't so much, the Cricket section was the best I have ever seen, including HQ in Lord's, absolutely stunning, the volunteer guides from the MCC make...

My partner and I loved our visit to this museum. We used our Myki voucher to get a 2 for 1 entry. My favourite exhibit was on cricket and I thought the hologram presentation of Shane Warne was so awesome, it felt like he was there talking to you. My partner loved the games area which was designed for kids... More

The guide we had that took us around the MCG was lots of fun with a heap of information for us. The actual Museum is amazing, I spent 3 - 4 hours there and only left as I had to get to the airport for a flight. I was surprised at the amount of different sports that they have displays... More

Fantastic interactive history of Sport in Australia covering nearly every sport an Australian or Australia has competed in. Great for kids and adults alike, I spent about an hour and a half on my own wandering the 4000 odd square feet of rooms and probably could have spent 4 0r 5 lost in the history, the stories, the memorabilia. Thank... More
