“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

If you like sport, you will thorughly enjoy the NSM. If you buy the MYKI transport card from the City Information Centre at Federation Square it gives you a 2 for 1 deal. Some wonderful exhibits, presentations, photo's, uniforms....... the list goes on.

“Fascinating Museum for the sports lover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

I cannot believe that we have lived in Melbourne for so long and not visited this brilliant museum sooner!! If like us you have ignored it make it a must do in the near future, you won't be sorry. We spent just on 2 hours here that absolutely flew by and have resolved to visit again to see everything that we missed! Every sport that has been played at the MCG is very well documented with loads of memorabilia and information however not all sports are given the same attention. If you love cricket you will not be able to drag yourself away and the Shane Warne hologram was enthralling.

“Historic and Interactive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I took my 2 children (aged 12 & 14) and my mother to the MCG to visit the Natinal Sports Museum.
The volunteers were very friendly and explained where all of the exhibitions were situated.

We had a great time looking at the AFL, Cricket, Olympic and Horseracing displays. The holigrams of Shane Warne and James Hird were really interesting.

The children especially enjoyed trying out the various sports in the interactive display.

“Not to be missed for sports fans”

Loved the way it is presented. Australia is a sporting nation and the museum reflects that. Found that the guides were full of knowledge and very helpful.
