  • I decided to visit the Museum of football with a very low expectation, because I don't care much for this sport. I was pleasantly surprise eat the quality of what is exposed.

  • Another great Museum of São Paulo. Easy to reach via the Metro Clinics, about 10 minutes walking. The Museum is large, well maintained, with several floors where you can see a little of the history of football. Has interactive attractions in addition to a space where you can see the field the stadium Pacaembu.

  • The Football Museum in São Paulo is one of the best attractions for children and grown-ups when visiting the big city. Admission free on every Tuesday, it opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. People spend approximately 1 to 2 hours walking around its 3 floors (ground floor + 2 extras floors). Not only does it tell the Football history (known also as soccer) from the Brazilian perspective, but also from a cultural and global one, including world's facts and news from the 19th and 20th centuries. There are fun and interesting activities like shooting a ball in a virtual booth. Sensors installed in the ground measure your kick speed. And there's a virtual goalkeeper! There are 5 fussball tables with a different strategy in each of them. You can play also a virtual soccer match. Cameras and sensors detect your movement and it feels like you're playing a video game. It's not that accurate, but it makes the tour a lot more fun. I totally recommend it! It's worth visiting it.
  • This museum really exceeded my expectations. I really appreciated how interactive it was -- the videos and pictures you can interact with as a guest are so fun -- but it was also extremely informative as well. I would highly recommend this museum to any soccer/futebol fan!
  • The museum is well organized, full of information and interactive features so you can get to know the sport history. You can also have access to Pacaembu Stadium view from the stands. If you're passionate about football, this is a must go!
  • This is the best football museum I've ever visited. Deep with history, fun interactive displays, beautifully designed and Wednesdays are free! Highly recommended.
  • Thoughtfully done exhibits that situate international soccer within 20th century cultural and political history. Worth a 1-2 hour visit
