A trip down memory lane

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.

The Pele Museum is in an odd neighborhood near the Port in Santos. The tourist trolley has ticket sales at the same counter under a pele motif, so be careful and make sure you are really buying Pele tickets. Museum is on 4 floors with great exhibits and photos. The interactive gallery was closed for repairs when we were there but still a great experience!

HRH Pelé - a dat trip to Santos
Apr 2019 • Family
Anyone's visit to Brazil is not complete if you don't make an effort to Visit Museum of Pelé. And Santos Football club where Pelé, Nyemar used to play. Its like going back to memory lane for 30+ age groups and leading the root of Brazil football for the younger generation. ' You don't have to introduce yourself, everybody in the world knows who Pelé is - Ronald Reagan .
A day trip is more than enough to Santos , the cafe museum, the city tour tram are all near by you may als add Santos stadium tour and all of this are easy to do on your own with out organize tour. To drive it takes less than 1:30 minutes from Sao Paulo. Uber cost around £30 one way. We hired a taxi for a day plus return trip and paid £80 for 3 pax, he was driving us in Santos to all the places, waited whistle we had a dip in a beach etc...

Excellent museum
Nov 2018 • Solo
Really enjoyed my stay. Great area downstairs about the start of Pele's career. Everthing explained both om english and portuguese. A lot of information of the brazilian team on 3 more floors. Great interactive part of the museum which shows both the world cup and Pele's life in New York. Really recommend to go there, especially if you are in to football.

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.

A must for all football fans
Feb 2018
Being a keen English football fan, found the museum interesting, particularly footage from 1970 World Cup and that Gordon Bank’s save. The museum cloud learn from European football museums, such as Porto’s in Portugal, which is far more interactive and dramatic. The games section was a disappointment, more tailored to younger visitors playing table games.
However, the museum represents the history of a football genius and it was a pleasure to be there for this reason alone. Always a pleasure to speak with locals - great banter. Must for all football fans.
