Must say that I am not so passionate with soccer, even if I like to see it. That museum is for somebody that lives for soccer. You can see there all the history of the world soccer championships: very well displayed with movies, photos and newspapers. If you are fond with those things that is a place where to go

Football Museum is nice things to know history about Brasilian football, especially national team from begining untill today. Selecao is 5 time world cup winner and that is good reason for football museum. Old football stadium in combination with museum back us in past time. My opinion is that every tourist what arrive in Sao Paulo, need visit Football Museum.

Interactive, lots of things to see and do. Kids (teens and pre-teens) will love it! The museum is very big and takes at least 2-3 hours to see entirely

If you like football, like I do, visit the museum. To much oriented to Brazil footbal history it is missing some worldclass approach. The interactive games are a good idea but don't work well

If you like football, is unmissable. Goals unforgettable, stories ... and access to that that really the most charming and historic Brazilian Fottball Stadium - the Pacaembu. Please, deals at the hotel or with someone who knows the city and the place. Just in order to to avoid trouble - which can happen anywhere place in the world. You welcome!

Yes, it's not close to the Clinicas station, it's a long walk up and down hills with no signages but what made it worth a trip for us was that it's free entry on saturday. Wow. Maracana... More

In these museum you can find a lot of things related to the football, obviously major related to the Brazilian, you can understand why in Brazil the football is a religion. If you like Palmeiras team, you can buy t-shirts of the team, and Brazil too. At the end of the tour there is a Brahma Pub, where you can... More

A welled designed museum nestled below the old stadium and short (down hill) walk from the center of Sao Paulo. Some excellent footage and analyses of the great moments from Brazilian football - 1970 final and that Carlos Alberto goal - which never ceases to send all into rapture. The art and beauty is all there in abundance. I was... More
