Great emotional show - must see
Oct 2020 • Couples
The museum is a place for the bucket list. It creates a lot of great emotions. It is easy to reach just opposite of the main station. Pricing is really fair.

Museum is chronologically organized guiding through every important moment of German football and includes priceless materials from history.

Museum is interactive, full of fun. Make sure to allocate 1-2 hours for the museum.

Superb!

Really great

The staff were amazingly friendly, the exhibits were really great with the 3D cinema and the 360 show. I am not a huge football fan but even I enjoyed it. The staff were really knowledgable as well. Would highly recommend

Awesome Sports Museum!
Jan 2020
Even though I only had a little over an hour, I really enjoyed this museum and wish I had more time. I don't speak more than 2 words of German, and was able to understand nearly everything there. The woman running the 3D theatre grabbed me out of the area I was in and asked me if I wanted to watch the 3D video in English as well, and she set it up just for me so I could understand all of the stories in the theatre. Workers were all super friendly like this too. I just need to find a time to get back to Dortmund so I can see the rest of the museum that I didn't have time for.

Superb football experience
Dec 2019
As a diehard footy fan who was in Dortmund for a Borussia game it seemed rude not to visit the National Football Museum.
It is well worth the visit. Even as an Englishman, the exhibits are fascinating, from the minute you enter with the exhibit dedicated to the first German World Cup winning team of 1954 right the way through to the modern era , covering everything in between including the pre unification days.
The great names and great clubs are all covered with some fascinating artefacts and I cannot praise it highly enough. All the exhibits are described in German and English this making it easier to understand.
Really worth while visiting, but allow about an hour and a half.

This is a must-visit for football fans. It captures an amazing history. The staff were very friendly. I spent a couple of hours here and could've spent longer reading through the detail.

Great museum of German football history!
Aug 2019 • Family
This is a great museum celebrating German footballing history. There are many artefacts of great significance such as the football used in the 1954 World Cup Final, which was Germany's first World Cup win.

My favourite section was the first floor which has the trophies, including all of Germany's four World Cups!

This place is a must visit for any football fan visiting Dortmund!

Great way to spend a day in Dortmund
I went by myself to the museum and I was pleasantly surprised. I you are a football fan, you should definitely check it out. There are always descriptions in both German and English, so it's pretty easy to follow the whole exhibition.
It's better if you go with friends because there are a lot of interactive videos and games you could enjoy a little bit more if you are with other people.
