I had a great time looking around the NSM. There are a lot of very interesting displays and activities. My one criticism is the lighting. It was impossible to take any usable photos. Other than that, well worth the entry fee.

Sport has been something that runs through any Australian's blood. We are a sporting country and to see a museum showing the best of Australian sporting in numerous national and international events and the in depth history of sport in Australia is educational and fun.
