National Sports Museum Reviews
We have taken our grandchildren there a few times and they always love it. They never get bored as there is lots for them to do and see. more »
An amazing collection of sporting memorabilia focusing on Cricket and AFL football. It also has other sports represented and a interactive section that the children can try their skills. more »
Strangely not too busy here in January school holidays. Good mix of displays and interactive exhibits to satisfy young and old. Matchday experiences for the kids (and parents!) are well worth the extra few dollars. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand as well. We spent more time here than we thought we would. Highly recommended.
Well worth a visit if you enjoy see some of sport’s history, my interest was the cricket. Fantastic hologram of Shane Warne speaking of his experiences playing here. I’ve added a video clip of this.
