We visited the museum after our MCG tour. They have so many amazing pieces of sports memorabilia. Give yourself a couple of hours if you have the time.

The guide who took us round the ground was very informative, but sadly, for a cricket enthusiast, very little of the character of the ground remains after extensive recent redevelopment, so it looks much like any football stadium, which is how it is largely used. Bit of its history are preserved in displays around the ground, and the sports museum... More

We bring visitors to Melbourne here every time. The MCG is an iconic Melbourne venue and this museum does not disappoint. Whether you follow cricket, Aussie rules footy or other sports, it has a bit for everyone. Easy access from the central city and a good 2-3 hour experience.

Great place to spend a half of the day for families with the young kids! You "mast see" the museum especially if you love sport and want your kids to be involved in that.

A fantastic few hours spent enjoying the well presented and extensive memorabilia from many sports and the history of the development of the MCG. There were hands on sports activities to try too.

The museum is located at the MCG and is not to be missed. A fabulous family outing with so much to see. The best way to get there is by tram or train from Flinders Street Station. You could spend 3 to 4 hours there and be amazed at the collection.

Took two grandsons, age 10 and 8, they had a brilliant day using the interactive area for sports in general. We then moved onto the information areas which were brilliant. So much for all ages, well thought out and the contributions by James Hird and Shane Waugh were brilliant for two young boys to see the real balance of sporting... More
