There's so much to see, so give yourself plenty of time. Every sport is covered & I particularly enjoyed the Olympics display. Great for children, too.

Really amazing, you will need a couple of hrs minimum. We should have one to celebrating all our sports men and women. Not just specific sports that happen to have a high profile

I really like this Museum as it introduced a lot Australian sports to me, even I am not a big fan of Australian sports! Me and my friends do enjoy visiting here.

If you tour the MCG, pay the extra for the admission to the natioanal sports museum. Make a sport of avoiding the volunteers, unless you have a long long time for a chat.

Wow! What a fantastic museum. It is a credit to Melbourne to build this in recognition of all our Australian Sporting Heroes. We spent 2 hours there and could have easily stayed much longer. Would highly recommend a visit to this museum when in Melbourne. A real must for any sporting fanatic.

Contains magnificent memorabilia donated by eminent Australian sports people. The interactive area is sure to pelase the kids, great value for money, I would allow at least 2.5 hours to get a good look around though.

What a great museum for sports fanatics. The interactive games are fun for young and old. The collections are just fantastic and ensure you give yourself at least two hours. The price is great and great to go to before watching a game at the MCG !!!

An outstanding sports museum. Teenagers love the interactive area & visual attractions. Make sure you locate & explore the MCC museum which is off the end of one of the corridors in the NSM.

Even for someone who knows very little about Australian sport, I really enjoyed the museum. It had a wide variety of sports and Australian sports personalities to look at, including the Olympics, cricket, AFL and soccer, and had lots of interactive parts and interesting videos all throughout the museum. It's well worth a visit.
