The Spirit of the Games captured the exhilaration of the opening ceremony of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games.

Open at the Melbourne Museum just 72 hours after the ceremony, the exhibition included a selection of glittering costumes, flags and floats, as well as behind-the-scenes stories, revealing how the opening ceremony icons were created.

The exhibition comprised a dynamic experience, including spectacular sporting moments as they occurred, and a lasting record of the excitement of the Melbourne Games within the rich history of the Commonwealth Games.
