For such a small nation our sporting achievements are something that fills one with pride. Having a family member included in the exhibition I know what it takes to reach perfection in one,s chosen sport.

“AUSTRALIAN SPORTS MEMORABILIA AT ITS BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We did this museum as part of the MCG tour. Amazing amount of sport's memorabilia. You don't have to be a fan or sport to love this place. So many great memories in one room.
Worth the extra $$.

“School Holiday Activity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Took the school kids to see the museum.
They loved the interactive sports part the most.
I will return another time to fully enjoy all it has to offer as kids reduce your ability to fully read and take it all in.
