More about Brazil
Have a ball at Museu do Futebol!
In 2014, the year that Brazil will host the World Cup, there's nothing more appropriate than to visit the Soccer Museum located at the Paulo Machado de Carvalho Municipal Stadium, in the Pacaembu neighborhood, to get to know more about the history and culture of this football loving country.
Discover the many objects that fans use to support their teams at the Sala do Torcedor room, mingle between the best players this country has had over the years at the Sala Anjos Barrocos room. And why not kick a penalty and calculate your speed at the Sala Jogo de Corpo room. Fun is guaranteed for children, dads, grandpas, uncles, nephews and everybody! Even for those who aren't that into the sport.
The Museu do Futebol is the only soccer museum in the world that doesn't have any connection to a specific team. It offers audio guides in Spanish and English and it's easily accessible to everybody.
The museum opens Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 5pm. Except on game days. The entrance costs R$6,00 (kids under 7 years get in for free). Thursdays are free for everybody.
