Many people are calling them the greatest football team of all time and who are we to argue after Barcelona’s stunning Champions league victory over Manchester United last weekend. Visitors are flocking to Europe’s largest all seater stadium to get a glimpse of the 2011 European trophy.
Not only is this one of the best sporting museums in the world, it is also one of the most popular museums of any kind in Catalonia, attracting over a million visitors each year. And it’s easy to see why it’s so popular.
Tours include a visit to the impressive Barcelona FC museum which is packed with sporting artefacts dating back 100 years including trophies and photos. There’s a guided tour of the changing rooms and you can feel a rush of excitement as you walk down the player’s tunnel graced by the likes of Messi and Xavi. If that wasn’t enough you’ll also get a chance to sit on the player’s bench and experience the pitch at ground level.
