The FC Barcelona museum is one of the most visited museums in Barcelona, with an average of 1,540,000 visitors per year. It is located opposite the Dali museum in Figueres, which has another 1.5 million annual visitors, and the impressive Picasso museum which attracts more than a million people every year.

History of the FC Barcelona museum

The FC Barcelona museum was founded in 1984 by Josep Lluis Nuñez, who was president of Barça at the time. It has developed quite a bit since then and now covers a surface of 3,500 metres.

The three key moments of the visit

Tour of the Camp Nou stadium

For me the most interesting part of the visit was the tour of Camp Nou: the mythical Barça stadium that is home to one of the best football teams in the world.

The tour gives you a view of the different parts of Camp Nou:

  • the dressing rooms, which have little of interest besides an eye-catching jacuzzi.
  • the entry tunnel used by the players coming onto the pitch.
  • the stadium: brace yourself for an incredible feeling when you see all the splendour of the Camp Nou pitch with a vertiginous panoramic view over the stands!

Gallery museum FC Barcelona

A multimedia space that retraces the key moments in the history of Barça

This part of the museum is based in dark rooms that are lit primarily by the light of giant screens.

  • You can access interactive touch screens and choose different videos or images from important FC Barcelona moments (first goal by Mesi, Iniesta’s goal against Chelsea in 2009…), and the best episodes in the history of the club.
  • Down a long corridor measuring 8 metres, projectors show key FC Barcelona moments (the final of the Copa del Rey or the Champions’ League). You also can’t avoid hearing commentary from Spanish journalists completely losing it (some of them are known for their incredible delivery!).

Gallery museum FC Barcelona

The gallery of trophies and other unusual objects

  • You will find innumerable cups won by FC Barcelona:
  • You will also find an array of very unusual objects (Maradona’s jersey, old Barça footballs, boots belonging to the best players, the first Barça logo).
  • At the end of the visit you will go through the FC Botiga, the official FC Barcelona shop (with very high prices).

Is the FC Barcelona museum a top tip?

Admission is not cheap (23 euros full price and 18 euros reduced price).

It’s up to you to decide if you’re willing to spend that much, which will really depend on who you are.

  • If you are a football fan and/or a Barça supporter (or a culé in Spanish, pronounced “coolay”) and/or you cannot afford to go to a FC Barcelona match, this visit gives you the chance to admire one of the biggest stadiums in Europe. A decent seat at a Barça match will cost at least five times as much as the museum.
    • If you’re not a football fan, we recommend you keep the money for one of the other top tips on our site 🙂

    • The ticket is valid all year, up to and including the December 31st (you don’t have to go on the date shown on your ticket).
    • The museum is always closed on the 1st and 6th of January and on the 25th of December.
    • On days where there is a Champions’ League match at Camp Nou, the museum is open from 10am to 3pm but the tour of Camp Nou is closed.
    • On days where there is a Copa del Rey match, the museum closes 3 hours before the match starts and opens an hour and a half after it ends. However, the Camp Nou tour is closed.
    • We advise you not to visit the museum the day before a Champions’ League match as a number of places are not open to the public.
