The vast array of sports on display show what Australians have been involved in. So much of what is displayed has been loaned to the museum by the sportsperson or their family which shows how proud of what they have achieved. The interactive displays are a very good way to enable people to experience how a sport is played. The... More

National sports museum was fantastic. Some updating of info is definitely required. Would be great if kids could have listening tour...we were told no!! Olympic exhibition was fantastic and my daughter loved it. Visiting school children were a little on obnoxious side...avoid if possible. AFL exhibition was also great.

I didn't realise how big the sports museum is and how many sports it covers. I spent alot of time looking at the AFL section, the hall of fame and also the legends section. Well worth the time.

What a place. Memorabilia, stories, interactive displays...the list goes on. Olympics, cricket and AFL are the key focus but most sports are covered in this museum. Make sure u keep plenty of time to get through the place (3 hrs should do it). Very helpful staff and well organised. Its worth the time..

Tour the MCG and then move onto the National Sports Museum. Contains lots of Olympic, cricket and AFL memorabilia. A great way to spend an afternoon. Interactive part is a great way to amuse the kids (big and small).

So glad we went to the sports museum. While I am not a hugh sports fan I found the museum very interesting. All sports were covered not just AFL. Highly recommended for cricket fans.

We went here after a tour of the MCG. Well worth the visit. All three 'kids' - aged 18, 15 & 10 enjoyed it - and hubby too!

The National Sports Museum is an interesting and fun place for adults and children, and is highly interactive. You can get a combo entry ticket that includes the Melbourne Cricket Ground I believe, which is great value.
