Well worth a visit, especially the ground floor. Took me around 1 hour to see it all. The trophies were really nice to see and appreciate how people appreciated the genius of Pele. Also liked to see his own soccer boots.

Wasn’t expecting much but this museum exceeded my expectations. The exhibit is much bigger than I expected and very informative throughout. The museum is English speaking friendly and doesn’t cost much to go in. A good way to spend a couple of hours in Santos.
