Visited the Museum on a rainy day and parked up close to the entrance. You do get to peak inside the stadium itself, but the Museum itself is within the structure, under the seats.

Really nice place to visit for anyone who is even mildly interested in football. A well organised tour of the football world, from it's history up to modern day idols. Price is cheap and very affordable with lots of interactive exhibits and even a chance to measure the strength of your penalty kick. Wonderful activity from kids to adults alike.

It was a great museum. I loved how you can interact with the displays and appreciate the history and signifance of football in Brazil. I am not a soccer fan. But I appreciated this museum anyway.

Its a must see in São Paulo. Not only for its incredible infrastructure, but also for the beauty of Pacaembu Stadium. The museum is very well made. Has lots of historical stuff. And it is modern, technological and interactive. Kids will definitely love it.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
