It is with great excitement that we announce the National Sports Museum, home of Australia’s largest collection of sporting memorabilia, will be renamed the Australian Sports Museum when it reopens at the MCG next month.
Leap into the museum at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday February 29 – 2020’s leap day – in order to be among the first to explore the interactive and unique exhibits.
This is no ordinary museum. From touch screens and avatars, to climbable walls and sporting challenges, there’s so much to experience at the new Australian Sports Museum.
The Australian Sports Museum will also feature a number of special faces sharing first-hand accounts of their sporting story.
A highlight amongst these will be a life-size 3D hologram of dual AFL Premiership and Richmond Star Bachar Houli. The All-Australian defender will talk candidly with visitors, taking them through his experiences at the elite AFL level, from the emotions of first being drafted, through to Richmond’s 2017 fairytale flag.
Tickets are now on sale at australiansportsmuseum.org.au. Be one of the first to enjoy this exciting new experience at the MCG.
