You can see everything in an hour tour !!! I would try to visit in a free-pass day (I guess it's on saturdays). There's no metro around, so it's more accessible by car /cab.

We had the English headphones, so it was informative. It was worth doing as we learned a lot about soccer in Brazil.

Although I am not really interested in football I found this tour very interesting and enjoyed seeing the exhibits and pitch. I would have liked to have seen some English subtitles

This museum was worth a visit. It gave me goosebumps reading about and watching the history of football in Brasil. The presentation of the exhibits was particularly well done, with great video, sound, and audio clips. You also get to see inside the stadium. And it is easy to get to by public transportation.

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.

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.
