We bought a combo ticket that was for the Sports Museum and the Tour of the MCG. We thoroughly recommend it. The sports museum had a lot of memorabilia, I particularly loved all the antique sporting items, in particular the antiques in the Horse racing section. I definitely recommend this one.

Well worth a couple of hours to visit. Perhaps a little cricket centric, but this is the MCG, the museum is bang up to date. Particularly enjoyed the Olympics area. The best plan is to combine the museum with the MCG tour and make a proper half day of it. Recommended

Really worth a visit to the Sports Museum. From AFL / Cricket / Olympic memorabilia and many more sports. The AFL has there Hall of Fame and Legends room there which is great.

Bought a joint ticket with MCG and this was the better half. Brilliant displays about all kinds of sports and the olympics. Could spend ages just mooching about. Also fun interactive area which was surprisingly empty which youngsters would love.

Fantastic for most sports enthusiasts. Most memorabilia is cricket, football and Olympics. We spent 1 hours, all we had , but I will go back as I think you need to spend at least 3 hours. Volunteers in cricket area were a mine of information.

The Sports Museum is pretty cool! They had a great area on the Olympics with memorabilia from each one. Also had a great section on all of the AFL and Cricket teams to. The kids had a great time in the interactive area. The museum overall has a great representation of all the sports in Australia and their history.

Any museum that features the true greats of sport, Rod Laver, Herb Elliot and 'The Don' gets my vote. Situated at the MCG this is an attraction not to be missed for any sports lover. The hologram featuring Shane Warne is very impressive. The sports featured include both rugby codes, Aussie Rules, cricket, the Olympics, horse racing and cycling. I... More
