A new, bigger and better interactive hall and a sports cinema are now open at the National Sports Museum.
Game On is a new ‘hands, feet and bottoms-on’ area within the museum.
It’s an extension of the original interactive gallery, but this time offering a larger range of sporting activities from cricket, football, bike racing, soccer and archery as well as a newspaper “sports-desk” interactive, multi-media screens and a comprehensive list of sporting world records.
There is also a new netball interactive, designed to inspire young players with images of Australian netballers from the 2008 International Test Series.
Visitors enter into the area via a portion of the actual running track from the 2006 Commonwealth Games and into a world of action - they can test their own goal kicking skills against AFL players, run out Adam Gilchrist on a virtual cricket pitch, test their hand-eye co-ordination and kick, throw, shoot, ride, race and run to their heart’s content.
It’s the perfect place for kids (of all ages) to let off steam!
