I am not sure if maracana stadium is called mecca of football, but for me this was... it had great historical attributes, even a non football person can understand the subjects present in this place. Great facilities especially for handicapped people to see the videos and hear the videos about the history of football, it gives you goosebumps with highlights... More

It is well organised and set... More

The museum has a series of rooms with lots of information about Brazilian football teams and important players. There is also a small movie theater and activities for children, such as a machine to measure the speed of a kicked ball. Is it very entertaining for both adults and children if you love sports.
