Actually spent 2 or 3 hours here despite being British. The place is very well designed with great exhibits covering all aspects of Australian Sport. I spent an hour alone watching the films. This place is a must see if you like sport!

It's a must see for any Melbourne visitor even if you have no sporting interest. There's plenty to see and do in this museum. The AFL section is awesome.

We entered the Museum after a tour of the MCG. There is lots to see although I feel the entry fee is pretty expensive. It was enjoyable but a one off experience.

If you're a sports fan this is an interesting museum in an iconic venue...The MCG. There are a variety of displays from AFL to racing and Olympic paraphernalia. You could easily spend more than an hour here soaking it in.

A simply fantastic history of our Sporting History in a wonderful setting. The MCG Tour encompassing the Sports Museum is something all Melbournians and visitors should undertake as it is world class.
