Wheelchair and mobility impaired access
National Sports Museum: The National Sports Museum caters for all mobility requirements and includes ramps and escalator access. The National Sports Museum has two levels. The bottom level can be accessed via stairs or a ramp.
MCG Tours: This is a walking tour of the stadium that runs for 75 minutes. Mobility impaired and wheelchair access is available for most parts of the MCG Tour. However, the ramp access to the playing surface is steep and some patrons may face difficulty using the ramp to access the playing surface. We do not recommend taking part in this section of the tour if you find it difficult to ascend or descend steep inclines.
Limited car parking spaces for disabled visitors are located at the corner of Jolimont Terrace and Jolimont Street, as is a drop-off zone. This area is close to Gate 1 of the MCG. There is no parking available at the MCG.
Guide Dogs and other registered assistance dogs are welcome at the MCG and National Sports Museum, in the gallery spaces and to all programs.
Toilets and infant room
Male and female amenities with wheelchair access are available in the foyer of the National Sports Museum inside Gate 3. Please look for signs or ask one of our staff. An infant room for parents and children is also provided on the entry level. The main wheelchair access toilet has a sign with Braille indicator.
The foyer inside Gate 3 is also home to a ‘Changing Places’ toilet, with the MCG becoming one of the first venues in Victoria to introduce advanced accessible bathroom facilities.
