We had a booked birthday party for our 9 years old daughter in there last week. The customer care was absolutely outstanding from the beginning to the end. Andy was very helpful with all the information via emails and our birthday host Tom was amazing with his knowledge, passion and lovely attitude. The kids got a wee tour around the stadium and plenty interesting stories have been told. They even got to play 5s aside on the indoor pitch.
All the children absolutely loved it!

I would totally recommend it to everyone, football fans and not a football fans. Everyone will find something interesting during the tour.
Thanks again Hampden team.

The museum is very good and covers the development of Scottish football, from the invention of the passing game to the present day. It was just my wife and myself and we were treated to a tour by excellent guide George who explained the history of the stadium.

I have to start off by admitting I am not a football fan at all, I have no interest in it whatsoever. However my son is on a mission to visit every museum in Glasgow and as my husband is a huge football fan we thought it would be worth a visit. I was expecting to be pretty bored but surprisingly I wasn't.

The museum focuses on the history of Scottish football and there is a lot of memorabilia to see. I did learn stuff about football I never knew. There are a lot of things to take photos with too, I particularly liked the giant table footballers and the peeping Toms looking through the fence of the first international match. The tour of Hampden Park was about an hour long and very interesting. Our guide was very enthusiastic and definitely knew what he was talking about. It was a very interesting insight into the stadium and the history of it. We even got to score a goal at Hampden which I'm told is quite a feat.

Any football fan would definitely enjoy visiting and would certainly find it interesting. I would definitely recommend it.

We visited the Scottish Football Museum yesterday and loved it! There were 2 adults and a nine year old in the party and we paid £17. This was a family ticket which covers 2 adults and 2 kids. Although the very nice woman on reception explained that there are often tokens and vouchers available for cheaper entry. She gave all all the info we needed to know and also our audio devices.

The museum itself is much bigger than we had thought with lots of interactive exhibits. The audio descriptions are interesting and the audio devices worked perfectly (unlike in many museums). There are artefacts, videos, photos, a research section and interactive games, including a table football game (sometimes the simple things in life are fun!)

Unfortunately there are no stadium tours possible at the minute because of the work being done for the Commonwealth Games. However the staff are approachable, happy to chat and are very informative. We even discovered that the first Scotland Womens International against England was held in our home town of Greenock.

There is a good cafe where we had nice coffee and a light lunch. To be honest we would have stayed longer if we'd had the time - there was much more to it than we'd thought.

The downside at the minute is all the building work going on around and inside Hampden. There is no car parking and it's a fair old walk to get into the stadium given all the safety barriers. But even with this I'd still recommend the museum.

We all enjoyed our visit and will return for another visit to include the tour.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. We are delighted you and your family enjoyed your visit with us and we apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by the Stadium Tours not being available due to works for the Commonwealth Games. The works carried out at that time could not be helped and we hope it didn't affect your visit with us. One of my favourites is the table football as well! :-) I will be sure to pass on your comments to the staff and we hope to welcome you back to the Stadium for a Tour some day soon.

Being in Glasgow with a football mad 8 year old we thought we would take the Hampden Tour, what we hadn't realised was how good the Football museum would be - was excellently laid out, informative, fun and full of lots of memorabilia and memories ( even as an Englishman) the Archie Gemmil goal re-enactment took me back to being 8 years old again and that wonderful goal against the Dutch - the stadium tour is great fun, the tour guide was just the right mix of information and jokes - mostly it seemed at Hib's lack of cup success- would recommend to any football fan from any country - great stadium, museum and tour.

Tour was excellent with a very enthusiastic guide, even when my first penalty in the warm-up area went nowhere near! Interesting to see dressing rooms, go pitch-side and also the museum where the penalty spot from Wembley 1967 is. Museum also had many other interesting exhibits from the history of Scottish Football. Enjoyed my time here, even as an Englishman, as I was made to feel very welcome and was very impressed by the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.

I'm not a massive football fan, but my boyfriend is, and we both loved the exhibition! We only visited the museum, as the stadium was being used for a match that day, but we had fun looking at all the displays of cups, football shirts, early football equipment and other paraphernalia. There's even a space to play FIFA for a bit! Really recommend it for football fans for obvious reasons. I'm into history, so seeing how football slotted into historical events in Scotland and other parts of the world was really interesting.

This was an excellent few hours spent. The football museum is really well laid out and incredibly interesting from beginning to end. The layout is clear and easy to follow. There are lots of pictures , trophies, medals, cuttings and videos to keep it varied. There is an audio you can follow to with a speaker (no extra charge). We spent two hours in here and only because it was closing. I would recommend 3-4 hours. The tours of the stadium don't start again till September as far as I know so that 3-4 hours is just the museum part. The guy working there was very nice and helpful and entertaining. We even got a sneak peak of the stadium while it's undergoing reconstruction after the commonwealth games. Would suggest going here if you are a big football fan (the boyfriend) or have a mild interest in it (like myself) Even for someone who doesn't follow it too closely it was still really good.
