So much footage on the game and past World Cups. Great. The historical data is well documented and illustrated, besides some interactive stuff for the kids. Well worth the visit.

Something the Brazilians have in your soul is the soccer (football) ... Since children we learned to play in any space and with anything that resembles a ball. This interactive museum shows our history, achievements and even suffering experienced in this beloved game. Invented by the Brithish, nowadays this is the most played team sport in the world!
