National Sports Museum - Review

The NSM manages the MCG tours, an interactive walk through the highlights of Australian sports and Australian Sporting history. A wide variety of sports gets covered including Australian football, cricket, the Olympics, rugby, soccer and basketball. You’ll also find the Sports Hall Of Fame, the Racing Museum, and the Melbourne Cricket Museum (which will take you through the dressing rooms). The volunteers themselves are lovely and ful of enthusiasm. The stadium has a massive seating capacity, over 100000. When full, the place is a bedlam, especially during the Ashes.

The achievements of Australian sportsmen and sportswomen at all levels are showcased within interactive exhibitions, which represent all sports played within Australia. These exhibitions offer visitors an insight into Australia’s extremely diverse sporting history. GAME ON! INTERACTIVES GALLERY A real favourite, in Game On! you can test your goal-kicking skills against AFL players, cycle against friends and test your reaction times. With sporting activities ranging from archery to netball and cricket to soccer, the interactive gallery is the perfect place to throw, shoot, ride, race and run to your heart’s content! OLYMPICS Faster, Higher, Stronger traces Australia’s participation in the Olympic Games with highlights including a display of Olympic relay torches, the cauldron used at the1956 Summer Olympics and the medals won in 1896 by Edwin Flack – our first ever Olympic champion. Audio-visual displays complement an incredibly rich collection that spans three centuries of elite participation on the world stage. AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL The Australia’s Game gallery hosts a wealth of material collected from the greats of this uniquely Australian game. View the most comprehensive collection ever assembled, as well as immersing yourself in the Australian Football Hall of Fame gallery, where you can pay homage to the game’s greats. SPORT AUSTRALIA HALL OF FAME The Sport Australia Hall of Fame was established in 1985 to recognise and promote the outstanding sporting achievements of Australian athletes across all sports as an inspiration to all Australians. Selection to the hall of fame by their peers is the pinnacle of achievement for any Australian sportsperson. The exhibition honours the careers of the various Members and Legends and features audio visual presentations and objects related to the Legends. CRICKET The Backyard to Baggy Green gallery covers the history of Australia’s national game and features an opportunity for you to go face to face with one of the country’s most important and iconic sportsmen – Shane Warne – as he re-lives some of his favourite memories throughout his illustrious career through a state-of-the-art 3D hologram experience. The gallery also includes the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame and you won’t want to miss the marvellous Baggy Green Room, where you can gaze at an amazing collection of Baggy Green caps worn by Australian Test cricketers of both genders. MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND The People’s Ground presents a history of Australia’s spiritual home of sport – the National Heritage listed Melbourne Cricket Ground. The exhibition highlights the history of the MCG and the important role it has played in the history of cricket, the Olympic Games and Australian football and as having been a home for thousands of Australian and United States servicemen during World War II. HORSE RACING The Champions:Thoroughbred Racing Gallery opened in 2010 on the eve of the celebrations surrounding the 150th running of the world famous Melbourne Cup. The NSM provides the perfect home for the amazing collections and displays of the Australian Racing Museum including some of the most beautiful and important horseracing treasures imaginable, as well as gems that have never been displayed before.

MELBOURNE CRICKET CLUB MUSEUM The MCC Museum showcases the rich history of the club and the ground it manages – the world famous MCG. The MCC is almost as old as the city of Melbourne itself, and the MCC Museum offers you a wonderful insight into the way that sport is tightly woven into the history of the city and the wider country.
