  • The stadium itself is in a deplorable state. But the Football Museum is worth it! It is small and simple, but with relics that football lovers will enjoy! Recommend!

  • Historic Stadium. Completely out of FIFA standard, but within the standard traditional South American football. Did the tour of the Museum that they have in estãdio and visit to the stands. I dismissed the rise in tower that used to cost a few bucks more. The Museum pictures, posters and newspapers about the Uruguayan and world football. Special emphasis given to the 1950 world title, the Maracanazzo!

  • Historic stadium. Walk around a stand and enjoy the museum for 5usd. Bargain
  • This is surely an important coliseum for any pure football fan to witness. Playing host to the first World Cup final, one can get a sense of occasion when stepping inside the centenario. The are also ample opportunities to relive many of Uruguay's other successes, such as the regular Copa America triumphs, as the trophy rooms and layout share a direct relationship with the positivity of those times.
  • This stadium is one of a kind, still bears it's old and classic architecture way back since 1930. A lot of history is attached to this stadium. Never to forget that it hosted the inaugural edition of World Cup..,!!
  • The stadium is surrounded by green areas. You will enjoy walking around.
  • Its the best soccer stadium that you are going to find here in Uruguay.
