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

Well worth a visit. Very interesting, so much to see & so much information. Although we were 2 couples, (without young children) it would be a great place to take children as there is also so much entertainment there for them, Highly recommend it.

the museum mainly focus on AFL and cricket, if you are a fan of these sports, you sure will love it. But if you're not interested, you may get disappointed. But still, the interactive games were fun to try, and also the Olympic game history was fun to watch. However, it cost $20 for the museum. If you're not interested... More

A great way to spend a couple of hours and the warne holographic display is better than average. It is available as an add on to an MCG tour and is a great place to take visitors, also a good idea in bad weather as its very protected

I cannot rate this experience highly enough. The NSM is located at the MCG and its worth buying a combined MCG tour (which I've reviewed elsewhere) & museum ticket (combined $30 per adult - museum only $20). The museum is open every day between 10am and 3pm but make sure you leave plenty of time to explore - I spent... More

Had some amazing historical pieces that even a non-sports person would find impressive. Some fantastic historical pictures of the MCG at it's beggining. My kids absolutely loved the interactive sports section at the end - kept them amused for ages. Whether you are a sports lover or not, you would find this a fantastic place to spend a couple of...
