Owner description: The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It also hosted the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

“MCG Tour, Sports Museum & Football”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We did the tour of the stadium and a visit to the National Sports Museum on a Friday. The tour is magnificent, you get to visit all corners of the stadium and learn a ton about the stadium from your tour guide (who will be a volunteer MCC member). We even got to step out on the playing surface for a little bit. The National Sports Museum is also brilliant, with displays of all of Australia's sporting triumphs. The day we visited was two days after the Black Caviar display had been unveiled. This tour and museum is a must-see for any sports fan.

“Great under cover”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Getting a seat under cover at the "G" makes watching a match during bad weather much better. And the little TVs help you see what's happening at the other end of the ground.

“Wonderful tour at the MCG! A must for a sports fan!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I did the tour and sports museum, she is by no means a sports fan but she also enjoyed it!!

The walk from Fed square is around 10/12mins and its through the park grounds which are very nice along the river.

Tour was in depth, views to die for!!

We saw the ground obviously but also saw changing rooms and corporate area and got to sit in the long room VIP seats and have a photo. We thoroughly enjoyed it, well worth the money and very worthwhile for any cricket fan.

We had a bite in the cafe which was very nice, then headed to the sports museum which was a great example of how a sports museum should be, some mega rare items here from all sports, the Melbourne cricket club section particularly interesting!! 10/10 highly recommend this tour!! 3-5hrs depending on how in depth you want to look around museum.
