Museum inside Pacaembú Stadium. It is a municipal stuff, it does not belong to any club. Any club can play there. The exhibit is quite nice with lot many historical items, photos and interactive stuff. Good for football/soccer lovers.

As someone who is not a massive soccer/football fan I was genuinely surprised how much I enjoyed the museum. The soccer history was mixed up with Olympic memorabilia which added a nice touch. I also recommend checking their website as we managed to head down on a day when they offered free entry. The staff in the gift shop were... More

The museum is an unique opportunity to know more about the sport that most brazilian people love. With several interactive activities, recommended for kids and adults, even if you are not crazy for football. A chance to understand sport history, players and world cups.

Neighbourhood Profile
Pacaembu
Highlights of this neighbourhood include Pacaembu Stadium and the Museum of Soccer, but they are not the only attractions it offers. Street markets are part of São Paulo’s culture, and at Charles Miller Square you will find one of the city's best. Arrive early to be delighted by fresh fruits, vegetables, coconut water and “pastel”, fried dough filled with innumerable options including cheese, meat, and shrimp. If you are into architecture, don’t miss Casa Modernista and Casa Buarque de Holanda, two historic houses. The small residential streets along Pacaembu offer quiet refuge from the chaotic traffic.
