The museum has a nice collection of photos, paintings, football shirts, posters, trophies, balls, etc. You can also visit the stands but there is no acess to the pitch. The museum entrance costs 150 pesos and + 60 pesos you can go up the tower and have a nice view from above. It is not so big but there is... More

The first world cup was held here and so there are many trophies and mementos of their success at football. The stadium is interesting to look at and the museum is really for the avid fans of football.

Huge display of historic memorabilia, photos, footage, paintings and more showing the history of the World Cup and Olympic Gold medal winners. Was little hesitant on knowing there was no information in English but it really didn't matter. Also included a wander around the stadium.

This place was amazing.I had no idea the first world cup was in Uruguay way back in 1930. Most everything was in Spanish but I had a guide showing me around.I loved the stadium and then did the view over looking the city with the elevator that goes up 20 stories!. All of this was about $7.00.

This museum contains all manner of Uruguay soccer memorabilia, which I found to be more of interest to locals. However, passing through the museum you can actually go into the stadium itself. This is the site of the first (1930) World Cup, and although the stands are a bit scruffy, it is a wonderful sight. In the world of sports,... More

I'm not a massive football fan but my boyfriend really enjoyed this museum. It's basically a huge collection of football memorabilia, dating from the 1920s to today. Lots of old trophies on display, including the one Uruguay won in the first World Cup in 1930. Also shirts from old kits, loads of posters from many different competitions etc. You can... More

I don't like soccer is that is why I consider it to be average, yet I met people saying there was nothing better than the thrill to visit that museum. Different tastes!

If you have followed football for the last 50 years, you become nostalgic in this museum. And you can tell your children that you have seen, talked to, played against some of the figures represented on 2 floors.

The only official football museum in the World. There is so much history that you are immediately filled with awe. Trophies and knowledge about the beautiful game. I really enjoyed the video of the patrons attending the opening game at the first world Cup. Watching the people wearing the old clothes with the beret hats gave you an idea what... More

This museum covers the history of uruguayan football right from its origins, and beautifully covers their olympic triumphs in Paris and Amsterdam. Also you get to see video recordings of their inaugural world-cup win in 1930. All the trophies are in place at one place. And ofcourse the historic centenario stadium is a pleasant site to watch.
