  • Overall very interesting place. Definitely worth visiting. The ticket price is very reasonable - I paid R$20 (1 adult on Sunday). It’s interactive and has some nice attractions like possibility to take a photo with virtual World Cup. I wish it was more bi-lingual. Most descriptions are in Portuguese and lack EN version.
  • We can know Brazilian football history. It will be wonderful moment. They open even holiday. If we go to São Paulo, here is one of good opinion.
  • The museum is located inside Sao Paulo's Municipal Stadium right under the seats. The stadium is not big nor modern but it's very tidy and well kept. The items on display are good but not amazing. One of the highlights is the World Cup History. I liked the way it was mounted. I would say that 50% is interesting for all kind of tourists while the remaining 50% might only be interesting for Brazilians. My favorite sections were: the field access in which you can walk on the side of the lawn and the naked structure below the seats in which you stand there and "feel" the trembling and noise of the "torcida" above you.
  • Very historic. You'll get a feel for how monumental soccer is to the country of Brazil, and how influential Brazil is to soccer. Definitely a 'must visit' destination in Sau Paulo. 👌
  • Great museum, if you don't speak Portuguese you should get the English translation device from the ticket office. It's an interesting listen and explains the history of football in Brazil. The entry fee is not very much and there are lots of interactive areas. Some with English translation. The atmosphere and design (with a lot of multimedia) is fun and colourful. Also a great gift store.
