The MCG is more than just a sports venue. It's a place where memories are made and childhood dreams come alive. There are fleeting moments at the 'G that stay with you forever.

Ask any Victorian and they'll be aware of the Melbourne Cricket Ground's status as the home of sport.

But it is also steeped in a rich history; established in 1853, less than 20 years after the founding of Melbourne, it is often described as the beating heart of this fantastic city.

The National Sports Museum is also situated inside the 'G'.

The NSM showcases:

  • Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum
  • Sport Australia Hall of Fame
  • Australian Cricket Hall of Fame
  • Australian Football Hall of Fame
  • Champions – Thoroughbred Racing Gallery
  • MCG – The People's Ground
  • Melbourne Cricket Club Museum
  • Backyard to Baggy Green Exhibition (including a Shane Warne 3D hologram)
  • Australian Football Exhibition (including a James Hird 3D hologram)
  • An interactive gallery for visitors of all ages, Game On!
