National Sports Museum

The National Sports Museum in Melbourne stands on the ground floor of the Melbourne Cricket Ground which we talked about yesterday (save $5 on your admission if you buy a ticket for the MCG Tour and the museum). Once again, this is a place to add on your list of things to do in Melbourne, especially for the sports enthusiasts that we are. The National Sports Museum exhibits more than 2,500 objects related to the greatest moments in Australia's sporting history. During the visit we can see that it is such a rich one (especially cricket)! The most striking objects for us are: Cathy Freeman's swift-suit and Ian Thorpe's full body swimsuit (the Australian having won the most Olympic gold medals) they wore at the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics, Cadel Evans's yellow bike on which he won the 2011 Tour de France (a first for an Australian) and Jack Brabham's car with which he became Formula One world champion for the third time in 1966 (photo). The icing on the cake: "Game On", an interactive gallery that allows you to come into play and measure yourself against the greatest champions of cricket, Australian football, cycling, etc. We love it! For your information, the museum is large enough to spend two hours (ok, we lost "a little bit" of time in "Game On").
