  • 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.
