The exhibition is well laid out. There are different areas dedicated to Brazilian football, Sao Paolo football and the World Cup. Interesting and fun interactive sections. Particularly liked the "Memorable Goals" area, and loved the shop!

If you're a fan of football, you're gonna like it, but don't expect too much, there is nothing so amazing that you're gonna remember with passion, yet... nice thing to do in São Paulo. There is a machine where you can try your shoot's speed.

There's a lot to see and do in the Football Museum. A really extensive archive of football history, but even more interesting the impact of football on the Brazilian society and the global impacts. Very cool.

Pafaembu Stadium is a major South American football stadium (bigger than La Bombonera in Buenos Aires). It has lots of exhibits and interesting features, including footprints of major players. Lets you get close to pitch level. Has lots of history and atmosphere.

As a said if you like football you must see it. It is the history of the football. Also you can see get information about all kinds of football like footsal. The only missing is at some places there is no English version of the info.

Staying in Pacaembu

Neighborhood Profile
Pacaembu
Highlights of this neighborhood include Pacaembu Stadium and the Museum of Soccer, but they are not the only attractions it offers. Street markets are part of São Paulo’s culture, and at Charles Miller Square you will find one of the city's best. Arrive early to be delighted by fresh fruits, vegetables, coconut water and “pastel”, fried dough filled with innumerable options including cheese, meat, and shrimp. If you are into architecture, don’t miss Casa Modernista and Casa Buarque de Holanda, two historic houses. The small residential streets along Pacaembu offer quiet refuge from the chaotic traffic.
