Combine with a tour of the MCG and you won't be disappointed. Each cabinet shows a combined selection of memorabilia for each sport then there is the cricket area with all its history. Don't miss the holograph presentation with Shane Warne in the back corner...More

This is not a museum you would visit to fill in time - it has so much to see, so much to learn. If, like me, you expected you would be able to walk through this in an hour or so, you are sadly mistaken...More

You could spend lots of time here, so much to see. Great MCG members collection and Olympic exhibit was also very good. A bit dark to see all of the exhibits properly.

An amazing collection of sport history and interaction activities to take part in. If you have time, then add the MSG tour to the list, the volunteers knowledge and history adds to a great day out.
