Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum
Brunton Avenue, Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum (9657 8879,
adult $9.50, child/concession $6 & family $25), adjacent to the Members entrance
at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, city end of Yarra Park. Tours are conducted on the
hour between 10am 3pm except on match days.
Located just to the south east of the CDB, the MCG is a pleasant basically downhill
stroll through the Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens. Alternatively you can park off
Jolimont Tce (past the security guard), but there is steep grade down to the entry.
Opened in 1986 the gallery and museum are accessible with ramps (7.2%) leading
to upper levels and an accessible unisex toilet on ground floor (near the ramps).
Tours commence in the foyer and move into the Members Pavilion and the
hallowed Long Room where you will gaze up at an empty Great Southern Stand, a
most daunting view. If the weather is fine you may even get to go onto the famous
University of Melbourne Museum
