Discover no ordinary classroom

A classroom with a difference, discover two experiences for one excursion at the MCG. Whether your school is looking for a day filled with activities at the MCG, or only has a limited time, we can offer an inclusive excursion experience for all students, of all capabilities.

A visit to the Australian Sports Museum is a self-guided experience full of interaction and exploration. We recommend 90-minutes for your school here, where students can take 60-minutes to explore the museum before spending 30-minutes to play in Game On!

An MCG Tour is led by an MCC volunteer, where students are taken on a 60-minute tour of the stadium.

Free e-learning resources are available for your students to enhance their discovery before or after visiting the Australian Sports Museum.

We offer free admission for one supervisor per 10 students. Please note, there needs to be 1 teacher with duty of care per 10 students. The teacher retains duty of care and responsibility of behaviour of students.
