As we enter the most exciting part of the football season, the National Sports Museum offers kids the chance to celebrate all things football, as well as share in the greatest moments in Australia’s sporting history and participate in a range of interactive activities.

Green and Gold Explorer Challenge
This September visitors will have the opportunity to take in our latest exhibition, More Than Green and Gold: Australia’s Sporting Colours, which captures the historical journey of green and gold as our national colours through a rare collection of artefacts.

The Green and Gold Explorer Challenge invites visitors to follow a trail through the exhibition and Yarra Park, offering clues to solve the challenge along the way.

The Coaches Courtyard
The Coaches Courtyard will be up and running again this school holiday period. 

Kids will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities here, including showing support for their football team by colouring a guernsey or designing their own pin badge with their team’s colours.

Game On!
The interactive Game On area offers a range of sporting activities, including AFL, soccer, cricket, cycling, netball and archery.

Visitors to the museum can test their own goal kicking skills against their favourite AFL players, run out Adam Gilchrist on a virtual cricket pitch, put their hand eye coordination to the test and kick, throw, shoot, ride, race and run to their heart's content.

Other highlights
For those who want to rest their feet, NSM Cinema Sport offers non-stop sporting action screening films created especially for the National Sports Museum, or families can recharge their batteries with a bite to eat or a cup of coffee at the Paddock Cafe.
