  • Don't waste your time down at the Stadium, there's not much to see, I didn't get at the Museum since was closed, just took some pictures in front. There are some parks around they're fine careless, with the tall grass and you can't sit down and rest a little. Only go if you stay longer in the city and has known the other places that are much more interesting.

  • A visit to the interior of a representative sports stage in the history of the sport. Practically a Museum and a soccer icon.

  • A nice stopping point to pictures, or for anyone interested mto by football. The museum itself is not so attractive. Are 150 pesos for entrance + 60 pesos to climb the lookout.

  • Símbolo del fútbol mundial
  • Inaugurated in 1930, the first FIFA World Cup was played here. Considered monument and place of interest.
  • Worth watching a match there. It's historical the stadium anyway.
  • Amazing stadium home for urugay's national team
  • Great historical stadium, nice view up from the tower. Museum has a lot of cool stuff, but it's very messy.
