    MCG tour and museum - SUPERB
    An amazing day which was made special by our guide Graham who passed on his knowledge and experience of many years at the MCG. He made the tour personal. We were a group of 4 with including a young couple from Fremantle AFL supporters whose company was appreciated. This tour far exceeded our expectations.

    MCG and Sports MUSEUM
    Both myself and my Grandson went on the tour, we both really enjoyed the staff were very friendly and the tour guide had such a knowledge of cricket looking at all the history of cricket was fabulous. The tour of the sports museum was equally impressive, anyone visiting Melbourne should definitely add these on their must do list.

    Great arena, disappointing guide
    This was a return visit, made because we had had such a great time several years ago but unfortunately this time the Guide wasn't very enthusiastic and kept saying he didn't like cricket (we know the MCG hosts many sports, but even so). He started by saying he encouraged questions but when anyone in our group asked anything, he wasn't keen to answer and just moved us on quickly. That didn't really take away from the fabulous arena and the historical background, but it did leave a bit of a sour taste. A real shame.

    MCG your.
    A disappointing tour that lacked a passionate guide. Whilst he took us around so many parts of the amazing ground, I didn’t get a sense of the historic moments that must have played out here over the years. A video of some of these moments would have enhanced the experience.

    A fantastic tour!
    A fantastic experience! We visited the MCG and toured the ground with our excellent guide Graeme. Graeme was helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the MCG and found we learnt a lot about the grounds history. The ticket was reasonably priced with entry to the sports museum included which was great for young children. We fully enjoyed our time at the MCG

    Enjoyable
    I really enjoyed both the MCG tour and the sports museum. Spencer was a terrific guide and we got to see some of the remnants of the AFL Grand Final in the changing rooms. I would have liked if more time was spent in the MCC members area, I wanted to hear more about it. The museum is very well put together. I was only really interested in the AFL and Olympic sections but still spent more than two hours there. The interactive area is wonderful for kids.

    MCG was alive
    We went to see the Wallabies take on the All Blacks, and whilst the result did not bode well from an Australian perspective, the atmosphere and the sheer number of people made the place come alive almost.

    Worth doing
    Well worth doing. I've done it 3 or 4 times now and still find it interesting. Perhaps could slow the tour down a touch, our guide kept things moving quickly. Our 17 year old Son got a lot out of it. A well run tour overall.

    A place for sporting fans and kids
    We visited this museum because it said interactive which my 10year old loves. And it didn't disappoint. We had a great time in there and would of spent longer if we had more time on our side. There's something for all ages.

    Bucket List Experience
    This is something that we had always wanted to do and it is so worth it. Our guide Anne was both knowledgable and passionate about the MCG and MCC and that added to our tour. The museum is well worth the visit and there are interactive sports to play, adding to the fun. This is well worth your time and $$ and we were lucky enough to go to an AFL game at the G, which was amazing.

Special attraction in the guided tour of MCG Stadium is the iconic photo frame of legendary Don Bradman with Sachin Tendulkar. A recent addition is the statue of legendary spinner, Shane Warne, near Gate no. 3 of the Stadium.

Having lived in the US for almost 2 decades I assume inclusive/accessible tours are the norm and atleast in the US accessible tours are required by law. FWIW I am of South Asian origin. We made it in time for the 2 pm tour. We went though the mandatory baggage check which is required before even buying the tickets. A old Asian-Australian lady did it. We walked up to the counter to buy our tickets for 2 adults and 1 toddler. We asked for the the duration and the accessibility of the tour. It was for 1 hour and not all parts were accessible by stroller. We asked if we could pay the full price and then exit if our toddler started crying in the middle as we did not want to disturb others. The lady in the counter saud that was not possible and was sympathetic to us and said maybe we could visit the store or the cafe. Regretfully we decide that is best rather than lift our stroller over stairs or having a tired toddler being dragged through the tour we would visit the store. As my wife stood outside the store taking a picture of our toddler this old asian security lady screamed something rude and nasty across the hall. We were disgusted with with what she said, my wife just wanted to walk out.

I had to walk back to the counter and had to tell the nice lady there how rude this asian security guard was. Her response was "this is due to heightened security". I was baffled by this. I have been to places of significant security (government and otherwise). It is perfectly ok to check bags, frisk even to do a full body search if the situation demands. I am perfectly OK and support it. But to be rude, nasty and racist is simply not OK.

Please read the other 1 star reviews. Most are by South Asians (Indians) and are treated the same way. So in my opinion,

1. IF travelling with a child < 5 - Avoid
2. If on a wheelchair - Avoid
3. If South Asian Avoid.

I did video the entire incident and will figure out how to upload this here or on youtube.

I was fortunate that my group for this tour consisted of me! My guide showed me around the inner workings of the club including the members area and the enormous changing rooms. He explained how the ground is switched between cricket in the summer and Aussie Rules in the winter, and didn't rush me round.

After the tour you get to wander at leisure around the museum. This is where, if you're into sport, you will need to leave plenty of time. The museum basically covers everything you want to know about cricket, rugby, AR and football with a lot of memorabilia to look at.

SInce the tour I've attended the Boxing Day test against New Zealand, and a Big Bash between Stars and Thunder. This is a great place to watch cricket and soak up the atmsophere that exists even when the ground is empty.

I really enjoyed this one hour tour we only had 3 of us in the group which made it more special. Due to cover there was a few places we could not visit ie the players box and the media boxes. But for the price of $30 it was well worth it. We were allowed on the edge of the pitch but you could not walk on the actual turf but that didn't bother me it was a great place to take selfies, if you have a bit of spare time I would highly recommend it

Sydney has the Opera House and the harbour bridge; Melbourne has the "G"! What a stunning cathedral to sport. Even empty you can imagine the energy a full house will generate. From ground level to the upper decks and behind the velvet rope where usually only the players get be - covers just about everything in an informative but entertaining manner. Strangely, it's actually inspired me to do the equivalent tour at the SCG before the history is irrecoverably changed.

Although not a great cricket fan I couldn’t help but be inspired by this awesome stadium. Alan was our tour guide (30+ years) so knew his stuff. The sheer scale & history of the G was incredible and would recommend tagging on the Museum tour if only for the amazing Shane Warne hologram.

Loved this tour and the inclusion of the sports museum. Tour went for approx an hour and then we spent another hour in the museum. We had a great informative guide in Kevin who kept us entertained with a number of anecdotes. He was a wealth of information. We really enjoyed all the behind the scenes rooms and memorabilia that was kept in the members area.
The museum had a number of interactive displays which would definitely keep younger kids occupied for a bit (eg handball “competitions” etc). Lots of pieces of history.
Had a tour group of around 20 which was the perfect number. Would go again.

This is a good tour (which combined with visit to sports museum was great value), giving great access to all parts of the stadium. Our guide, Frank, showed us around. The tour lasted around 75 minutes in total. The MCG is walkable from the city. I would definitely recommend, and combine it with a visit to the sports museum for a great few hours

Really well worthwhile to learn so much about Australia’s sporting heritage through a tour of the MCG. Marg was a very informative guide who knows so much about the history, the structure, the location and it’s history, the artwork, memorabilia and pride that Melburnians have in ‘the G’. Standing on the side of the main field and experiencing a hint of what the atmosphere must be like was great. Highly recommended to take this tour, it’s time and $ well spent.

This is something that I’ve had on my bucket list for sometime and what a game to get Australia v New Zealand.We decided to get the train for Syndey station to Jolimount which was simple and uncomplicated and took about 15 min, we then a short 5 minute walk to the MCG,The facilities are the MGC are first class and the guides are very polite and helpful.There are food stalls as for any normal test but they had batting and bowling side shows as well.The food and drinks prices were reasonable.It is a massive stadium and I have been fortunate enough to have done the tour as well and recommend both the tour and test.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is worth taking a short detour to see. Every year it hosts the Boxing Day Test and the Australian Football League Grand Final. It's been the scene of many other historic events, the MCG has hosted the 1956 Olympic Games and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. The MCG is surrounded by statues of great sporting men and women. The MCG is a short walk from the CBD, ar you can get off at Jolimont train station.
