I've visited several sports museums around the world, but few stand up to this. Melbourne prides itself on being the sporting capital of the world and, on the museum alone, the claim is more than justified. Utterly brilliant.

There's a few innovative displays, one with Shane Warne presenting a talk on his career. Its tucked away at the end of the cricket wicket, so don't miss it. There's also a hands... More

A great place to visit, regardless of your nationality. A free audio tour is supplemented by knowledgeable guides. I thought it would be quick, instead it took about 4 hours. Lots of Olympic memorabilia. Great for a wet day, which is pretty common in Melbourne.

As you would expect a lot of cricket and football history, but also olympic mementos and icons. better to do this before the MCG walking tour as the G takes your breath away.

The weather outside wasn't great but the museum brightened us up. This is an amazing museum highlighting so many sporting achievements if Australians but also acknowledging other sporting greats from the world of sport throughout history. A must visit in Melbourne

One place where history is depicted in photos, videos and so much other stuff. Trophies are also kept there for display. Each section is supported by short movies. You need few hours to visit each section in detail.

Kids will love this museum, especially teens. There's a huge variety of things to see as well as do via some interactive areas. Possibly more of a male adventure (generally). We took a group of French exchange students along and would have liked more than the 2 hours we had available.
