“What a tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Took our grandson to the MCG. What a thrill! Lesley, our guide, was so friendly, helpful and informative about the history and culture of our beloved "G". Worth every penny of the entrance price. Just remember if you have kids with you to do the tour, then lunch, then the Museum itself.

“Excellent for Cricket & AFL Lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Wonderful gathering of cricket and AFL history and memorabilia, especially high quality in relation to cricket history. If you have an interest in this area, you will enjoy this. The exhibits are high quality and the hologram of Shane Warne and his performance is outstanding. Make sure you sit in the little theatre and watch it from beginning to end. There is also a significant collection of Olympic memorabilia, most notably Cathy Freeman's suit that she wore when she won the gold medal in Sydney. The AFL collection is interactive and great for kids. If you are not a sports fan, you won't get much out of this, but that is stating the obvious.
