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.

I have been some times to the Museum and it is alwaysa pleasant experience. The museum is well organized, with many interactive activities and there is a view to the stadium. Children love it. Price is very inexpensive. It is worth the visit!

As a big football fan I was excited to visit this museum, although my wife admittedly wasn't as enthusiastic. The museum itself is cheap enough to get into and when you arrive it's hard not to be impressed by the impressive exterior of the stadium.
