The first world cup was held here and so there are many trophies and mementos of their success at football. The stadium is interesting to look at and the museum is really for the avid fans of football.

Huge display of historic memorabilia, photos, footage, paintings and more showing the history of the World Cup and Olympic Gold medal winners. Was little hesitant on knowing there was no information in English but it really didn't matter. Also included a wander around the stadium.

I'm not a massive football fan but my boyfriend really enjoyed this museum. It's basically a huge collection of football memorabilia, dating from the 1920s to today. Lots of old trophies on display, including the one Uruguay won in the first World Cup in 1930....More

I don't like soccer is that is why I consider it to be average, yet I met people saying there was nothing better than the thrill to visit that museum. Different tastes!

If you have followed football for the last 50 years, you become nostalgic in this museum. And you can tell your children that you have seen, talked to, played against some of the figures represented on 2 floors.
