The Football Museum (pt: Museu do Futebol) is a space in the city of São Paulo, Brazil dedicated to the most different subjects involving the practice, history and curiosities revolving around football in Brazil and in the world. This cultural space was built inside Pacaembu Stadium, located at Charles Miller Square in the Pacaembu neighborhood, on the west side of the city. The work was carried out by a consortium formed by the municipality and the São Paulo state government and inaugurated in September 29, 2008, with the presence of Pelé. From one of the exhibition rooms it is possible to admire the lawn of the stadium from above.
In the museum, visitors have the opportunity to understand how a sport of English origin, practiced by white members of the elite, gradually became a sport characteristic of all Brazil by adhering mestizo and popular traits of the Brazilian culture.

It was a nice museum, although pretty much everything is in Portuguese. It had a lot of cool artifacts and exhibits. Plus you can walk into the stadium afterwards.

Some interesting exhibits but lack of English information made it far from perfect

Great museum for who love football or not! Sometimes at the weekends the entrance is free. It needs to be updated

Nice inexpensive football historical museum with nice view of the stadium. It is rich with interactive areas and excellent sources such as old radio recorded, commented videos of epic plays and historical info.

I think this museum is overrated. It primarily has TVs with the best scenes throughout the history of soccer in Brasil. Unless you're a huge football fan, I don't think it is worth a visit. Something that is more for teens.

Amazing place, specially for a country so involved with football / soccer. If you're in Sao Paulo, you definitively have to go there

This museum really exceeded my expectations. I really appreciated how interactive it was -- the videos and pictures you can interact with as a guest are so fun -- but it was also extremely informative as well. I would highly recommend this museum to any soccer/futebol fan!

The museum is well organized, full of information and interactive features so you can get to know the sport history. You can also have access to Pacaembu Stadium view from the stands. If you're passionate about football, this is a must go!

This is the best football museum I've ever visited. Deep with history, fun interactive displays, beautifully designed and Wednesdays are free! Highly recommended.

Thoughtfully done exhibits that situate international soccer within 20th century cultural and political history. Worth a 1-2 hour visit

Not much in English but still worth a strip. Lots of clips and photos of monumental moments in football history.
