  • Great museum for who love football or not! Sometimes at the weekends the entrance is free. It needs to be updated
  • Nice inexpensive football historical museum with nice view of the stadium. It is rich with interactive areas and excellent sources such as old radio recorded, commented videos of epic plays and historical info.
  • It was a nice museum, although pretty much everything is in Portuguese. It had a lot of cool artifacts and exhibits. Plus you can walk into the stadium afterwards.
  • I think this museum is overrated. It primarily has TVs with the best scenes throughout the history of soccer in Brasil. Unless you're a huge football fan, I don't think it is worth a visit. Something that is more for teens.
  • Very interesting museum about the national pastime of Brazil. Some very cool displays.
