Spend a day enjoying Scotland's football heritage, remembering the legends that inspire the champions of today.

My wife brought me to this museum as a 'surprise' birthday treat. I'm not a big football fan so this was certainly unexpected, but I ended up really enjoying myself. Despite it being a Saturday afternoon we had the entire place to ourselves. I'm a bit of a history buff so I was fascinated by a film showing a massive crowd of over 100,000 at a Hampden match in the 1930s. There are plenty of other excellent audio-visual displays, and even a life-size depiction of Archie Gemmill's famous 1978 World Cup goal against Holland (a joy for any red-blooded Scot of a certain age). The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially in the excellent coffee shop. I'd recommend this attraction to anyone visiting Glasgow. Even if you are not especially intrested in football, the exhibits offer a fascinating and good-humoured glimpse into Scotland's past.

Have been a number of times to the Scottish Football Museum and have always found it interesting with new items being added all the time. The stadium tour shows you a bit of the behind scenes at the stadium but the stories from the guides make it more interesting

If you are football mad like my husband then you will love this. We missed the last stadium tour but one of the guides kindly let him have a quick peak when he was finished the proper tour. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the cafe and bought a couple of souvenirs. If you are catching a public bus, make sure you are ready to get off at the correct stop. We had an extra 10 mins in the rain walking back to the entrance because the bus driver didn't stop for us to get off. Great museum.
