National Sports Museum Tours

12 Reviews
Ever since Australia’s independence—and even well before it—sport has been integral in helping Australia define its identity and culture. Here at the National Sports Museum inside the Melbourne Cricket Grounds, learn about some of Australia’s heroes in rugby, football, or boxing, and hear how sports have constantly inspired Australians to strive for their best. Read the stories of Australian Olympians and participate in interactive games, and brush up on history of Australian Rules Football, cricket, horse racing, and tennis. The Australian Sports Hall of Fame is housed inside the museum, as are the Australian Football Hall of Fame and Cricket Hall of Fame. A popular highlight is the Shane Warne hologram, where one of Australia’s legendary cricketers is seemingly brought to life, and the wealth of exhibits and informative displays make the National Sports Museum a “must-visit” spot for sports fans when visiting Melbourne.
