National Sports Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • Excellent venue and great value for money here with the tour and Museum. Make sure to book on days when the tours can go down to the turf. Amazing to see the building from all levels including the players areas. The Museum had a lot of interactive displays suited to all ages. Very comprehensive with information on most sports. Staff very very polite and helpful. Well worth the visit.

  • Could spend all day in here to fully appreciate it. Visited on the last day before closure for major renovations so it will be back bigger and better! The interactive stuff was lots of fun.

  • Interesting place. For a footy or a cricket fan it's amazing to learn a bit about the history and see some big names there. The Olympic games section is definitely worth to see

  • Great for any cricket lover. Full of history and mana, even for a Kiwi.

  • A must visit place if you are Aussie sports lover and I went for cricketing history and it was worth visiting.
