Very interesting, dynamic, with many interactions. Non-brazilian will lose part of the experience, since it deals also with the affective memory of teams and football-related media.

Great place to go with the family or with outside visitors. A lot of parking space in front of the stadium (just need to pay with the "cartao azul"). Well organized and with some fun activities for the kids towards the end of the tour. Good tip for foreigners: you can ask for an electronic guide in English or Spanish.... More

It's amazing place to visit.. If you like football you must visit this place. The point that you listen the supporters celebrating it's amazing. Unfortunately non Portuguese speakers don't have so much information like in Portuguese. I went once with a Japonese friend and he didn't enjoy so much 'cause this... But I really recommend.

One of the best activities in Sao Paulo. It has the very essence of paulista's hearts and their passion for sports. Unfortunately most of the text is in Portuguese.

The museum is very well laid out, with lots of lovely displays and interactive exhibits. If you're into soccer, this is a must. But... Most of the explanations and texts are in Portuguese only.

The most exciting place is the room dedicated to the fans, you can feel... More
