A really very well set out museum in the bowels of an amazing stadium detailing the history of the world cup and football in brazil and worldwide. As a football fanatic I could have spent the entire day taking in the sights and sounds and reading all the information. I particularly liked the stadium, the worldcup 'mockumentry', the chanting fans... More

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. As other reviewers have mentioned, the main problem we had was the language barrier with... More

Worth a visit some great stuff about Brasilian football here. Down a steep hill from Ave Paulista but dont let that put you off. Great exhibits about all the world cups and club teams and a cool bar restaurant at the end. Shop a bit expensive though.

If you take Metro to Paulista Avenue, it will take you about 20min or so to walk there. You have to walk through some residential area and then a winding road slightly uphill before reaching there. Inside has many historic information on the past World Cups, plus a lot of Brazilian football. As a Brazilian supporter, the old names like... More

パカエンブースタジアムの中にあるサッカーミュージアムは、通常の入場料は6レアルだが木曜日は無料で入ることができる。この博物館では歴史に残るプレイヤーたちの名場面ビデオを見たり、当時の実況を聞いたりすることもできる。また今までのワールドカップのパネルがたくさん展示されている。英語の説明は少ないかったが、私は十分楽しむことができた。 This museum tells you lots of things about Brazilian football. You can see how important the football is in this country. There are lots of videos and photos of famous Brazilian player such as Pele, Ronald, Jico, and so on. There ware not much English explanation but I really enjoyed this place.

I am a new soccer fan. I was not very thrilled with the museum. There are facts about the games and the players but it is kind of outdated already. It cannot hold a candle to the Museu da lingua portuguesa. They should consider some kind of interactive activity or short video in this museum. There are a lot of... More

A good thing is that there is a street market right in front of the entrance and you can savour some pastel, a typical Brazilian snack. The best pastel in my opinion is the Pastel da Maria stand. About the museum, the entrance ticket is 6 reais and for senior citizens and students are half of the price, except on... More

We was lucky, as admittance was free on a day of our visit :-) Anyway, museum is really nice, worth of visit, as there are not many worthful sight-seengs in Sao (in my opinion), and definitely a "must have" for every football fan. Museum maps are available in many languages; we also suggest to use additional info available in halls... More

Even though I went for a fast track visit, this museum is informative and nice to the eyes... you can spend 30min or the entire day with all their films, pictures and interactive activities. Dont miss it if you are near the area! its worth it!

This museum does a really nice job displaying the Brazilian soccer history. My sons really enjoyed the visit and learning about the different World cups and about brazilian soccer stars. There some interactive activities that were fun like goal kicking, fuzball and virtual soccer.
