Although not really interested in sport I was overwhelmed by the size and variety of the exhibits. Not just limited to Football and Cricket it is a time capsule of Australian Sporting greatness!

This was great. We went after the tour of the MCG and only had time for the olympic area which was very interesting. There are many exhibits so that pretty much anyone can find something that interests them.

Just too big to take in in one day. So much information to absorb after the MCG tour it can become a blur. We perhaps tried to take into much but it is certainly worth a visit for sport enthusiasts and historians

Was pleasantly surprised, they really cater for all ages at this location. The children enjoyed the downstairs hands on area. Very interesting sports memorabilia. Well worth a visit

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.
