Worth the trip even as a football fan I learned something
May 2021
Very nice set up with one window poster for each world cup with actual items - shoes, gloves, tickets..and a summary of events and tournament results.
The little film with extracts from all finals is priceless.

Masters of deception
May 2021
We were waiting with the kids for more than 90 minutes in line for the soccer games. Nobody tols us that they shut off the systems at 6 pm sharp and kick you off. These guys are bloody amateurs when it comes to organization and customer satisfaction!
At least the exhibits and the quiz for kids are very well made.

Dear Stegiman Thank you for your honest feedback, it is well appreciated. We are sorry that your visit to the FIFA Museum has not been satisfactory to you. The waiting times at the pinball area are not acceptable and our management is currently working towards a solution to make this experience more enjoyable again and cut down waiting times. It delights us that you and the kids liked the other parts of the exhibition! We hope, we can welcome you back again to our museum. With a better system in place!

Avoid this time wasting clown show
May 2021 • Family
Avoid at all costs. Poorly run with terrible communication. Complete time wasters who do not care.

These incompetents waste people's time as many of us waited for 2 hours and were not told the children would not be allowed in. The manager and her colleagues incorrectly stated that they told people the museum was closing when they did not communicate this. Seven other people agreed and argued with them but the incompetent time wasters did not care. Complete clown show.

Highly disappointed after some excitement
May 2021 • Family
The museum starts off quite well, tshirts from all over the world, football history from past centuries with several examples and interactive attractions. Till you come to the upper floor and intends to visit the games portion. A lot more than one hour waiting on a queue that does not move. Only if the ones ahead of you give up these tremendous waiting line. So desorganizes and absolute no planning perceived by visitors. While we are still under some level of corona restrictions and amount of people is controlled at each location, for this museum you must book online however you can come at any time. So it means the amount of people at the museum simultaneously is not calculated nor considered, hence the attractions can and do get overloaded. Kids extremely frustrated. Parents inpatient. The staff remains polite but can’t do much at the spot. So I call for management to plan better this issue and allow visitors to have full satisfaction of this museum, so long shut down due to the pandemic, now opening at a chaos type of organization...

Fan-tastic display of the Men and Women World Cup
Mar 2021 • Solo
I enjoyed the display of the shirts of all FIFA members, the history of the World Cup and the exhibit on referees.

At the end of the museum tour, there is a nice gift shop. I went there to buy some souvenirs for gifts and Manuela took time to show me the shop.

Visit even if you not a big football fan
Jun 2019
Jun 21: My nephew is a big Chelsea fan and one of the top things for him during our vacation was to visit the FIFA museum. This place unlike the Olympic musuem is in a glass building and spread over few floors. Amazing to see the different jerseys of nations, walls about the WCs and history of each WC, the wall of stamps.

History of world football with some rare artefacts on display
Oct 2019 • Solo
Very well-detailed history of Football aided with multimedia display and original artifacts like trophies and various other sorts of memorabilia from almost type of footballing events(World cups to local league cups)

There is a play area for kids of varying ages to try their footballing skills.

There are thematic exhibitions taking place almost all through the year with themes like - "World Cup", "Football in the Arab World, Ballon Dor etc.. which are informative, well presented and impressive

If you like the sports of Football/Soccer, it would be a couple of hours we’ll spent at FIFA museum.

Good on a cold day

I thought it was a bit light on memorabilia and artefacts. Great interaction stuff for younger kids but a bit of a struggle for my teenager.
