About the MCC Museum
Located on Level B1 of the Members Pavilion, the 400-square metre MCC Museum has more than 700 artefacts on display. It features items such as the ball used when Australia won its first Test on English soil, the 1960 and 1964 VFL trophies won by Melbourne FC, a cricket shirt worn by Warwick Armstrong in the 1920s and a large architectural model of the MCG.
The first MCC Museum was established in 1969 and it was an integral part of the MCG Tours menu until the old Pavilion came down in 2003. It was then re-opened in its current location on Level B1 of the Members’ Reserve in November 2006.
The Museum’s rebuild sees newly added interactive multimedia touchscreens, alongside artefacts, paintings, rare porcelain and items of cricketana to further showcase the rich history of the Club, its activities and the ground it manages.
The mix of items and the Club’s rich history is enchanting, and you don’t need to be a sports buff to enjoy the experience.
