“AUSTRALIAN SPORTS MEMORABILIA AT ITS BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We did this museum as part of the MCG tour. Amazing amount of sport's memorabilia. You don't have to be a fan or sport to love this place. So many great memories in one room.
Worth the extra $$.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The National Sports Museum is an excellent experience for the whole family. The interactive section was great our 10yo loved having a go at all the activities from soccer afl archery cycling cricket. The displays were fantastic covering a large range of sports not just cricket and AFL would highly recommend!!!!

“School Holiday Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Took the school kids to see the museum.
They loved the interactive sports part the most.
I will return another time to fully enjoy all it has to offer as kids reduce your ability to fully read and take it all in.

“More sports than cricket and Aussie rules. Do not go late afternoon as it shuts early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Well constructed and much larger than you would expect this is a living museum with opportunities to participate in various sports as well as hearing/ seeing Shane warne and other Aussie icons. I suggest that you include this as part of your tour of the MCG

“5-star!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The National Sports Museum is amazing. There is a lot to see and take in, and all sports fans will enjoy it. There is also an interactive section of the AFL Wing where you can have shots for goal, handpass into a target and do mock drills. I heartily reccommend a visit to the sports museum any time you are in Melbourne.
