Melbourne Cricket Club Museum
The Melbourne Cricket Club Museum is an accredited museum (since 1998) and holds a collection of primarily cricket related material, although there are significant holdings in the areas of Australian Rules football and MCC and MCG history. The Museum also houses a fine collection of English ceramics and prints which depict cricket and date from the 18th century. On every non-event day MCG Tours depart regularly from the Great Southern Stand foyer (located on Street level, Brunton Avenue near Light Tower 4), between 10am and 3pm. Highlight of the tour include: Players change rooms; Cricket players viewing area; Coaches box; Heritage units and other art works; Birds eye view of the MCG; Walk on the arena (subject to availability). Please note: temporary closure. A massive project to rebuild the entire northern side of the MCG began in 2002, directly following the AFL Grand Final. Stage 3 of this project in October 2003 entailed the demolition of the MCC Members Pavilion, including the MCC's Cricket Museum. The Museum re-opened in 2006 in a new and more spacious home within the Members section of the redeveloped Northern Stand.
