  • A very interactive and informative museum. I think even those who, like me, understand little about football will enjoy it! A variety of information about the history of the game, famous players and much more is presented in an interesting way.
  • Fantastic place! I spend around three hours in. I couldn't see all things. There is a play floor and we played together with other visitors some of the games. Unforgettable!
