Visiting With ChildrenAny child with some interest in football will love the stadium tour.
The museum houses a large interactive section which appeals to children.
One of the largest stadiums in the world
Home to the Futbol Club Barcelona, the Camp Nou (translates to New Field) stadium was built in 1957 and has become one of Barcelona’s most visited sites. Enlarged for the 1982 World Cup, It is one of the world’s largest stadiums, holding nearly 100,000 people! Players like Maradonna, Messi, and Ronaldo have played and scored here, making it a mecca for fans of the game. Those who can’t make a match can still get a taste of the excitement at the museum.
The Tour is good!
Giant touch screens give an interactive experience into the history of the club and more. Sound installations give you a taste of match day sounds as well as the club’s anthem. You can also take a self-guided tour of the stadium. Match day is where the action is at though! Tickets are available online, at tourist offices, or at the ticket window. As the socis (diehard fans) say, “Ole-le, Ola-la, ser del Barca es el millor que hi ha (being a Barca fan is the best thing there is)!”
Self Guided tour
The self guided tour can take anywhere between an hour and two depending on how much of a fan you are. It covers the locker rooms, the press box, the changing rooms and the pitch side. You can do the tour at your own pace.
- Trophy Room
You enter the room and the scale of the place hits you, there is on display every trophy won by FCB and you can take a picture with the one out of its cabinet for that day. Also on display are Messi's golden boots and the Ballon d'Ors.
The tunnel connects the Trophy Room section of the stadium where the lockers are, to the Pitch Side. You pass a chapel in the tunnel, as the teams do, on the way to the pitch.
- Pitch Side
The scale of the stadium is evident once you step onto the pitch. It is massive and you can imagine what pressure the players must feel when they compete in front of huge crowds.
- Mega Store
The mega store turns FCB fans into kids in a candy store. There is unimaginable merchandise on sale from shirts to mugs, scarves to balls and hats, even grass from the pitch. As expected the souvenirs are expensive.
Key HighlightsOne of the world’s largest stadiums, Camp Nou is home to FCB, the Futbol Club Barcelona. A must visit for any football fan.
Match day is where the action is, but if you can’t make it, and most people can't, the museum can give you a taste of the excitement with the club’s history, game-day sounds, and self-guided tours of the stadium.
