A LIFE-SIZED 3D hologram of dual-premiership defender Bachar Houli will take centre stage at the re-opening of the Australian Sports Museum, following a $17 million upgrade.

The All-Australian Tiger takes visitors through a range of his experiences at AFL level, starting with a candid chat about what it was like to get drafted, all the way through to Richmond's drought-breaking 2017 premiership flag.

Formerly known as the National Sports Museum, Australia's largest collection of sporting memorabilia will open its doors on Saturday, February 29 with a range of new interactive exhibits.

The new displays will include touch screens, climbable objects and sporting challenges as fans learn about Australian football, cricket, the Olympics and much more.

Houli said becoming a part of the museum was something he "will cherish for the rest of [his] life."

"It’s something I’m extremely humbled by," he said.

"Being a part of this great history, of this great country, part of a great game, and being recognised in the Australian Sports Museum is something very special."

A range of special offers and activities will be available on the official opening day.

Tickets for the Australian Sports Museum will be available from 9.00am Friday January 17 via https://australiansportsmuseum.org.au/.
