The National Sports Museum (NSM) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground is about to temporarily close its doors until late February 2020 while it undergoes an exciting $17 million development.

The NSM, which opened in March 2008, will be reopened ahead of next year’s ICC Twenty20 Women’s World Cup Final being played at the MCG on Sunday March 8.

Once completed, the NSM will feature the latest technology, new displays, new activities, plenty of new interactive experiences for visitors, including in the `Game On’ gallery and new characters will be introduced to the popular “Pepper’s Ghost” holograms.

There will also be a new gallery to reflect Australia’s sporting culture.

During the closure, the ever popular MCG Tours will continue to operate is available to MCC members for FREE.
