Whether you’ve managed to snag tickets for a home game or booked a behind-the-scenes tour of the legendary Camp Nou Stadium, a visit to FC Barcelona Museum is a must for football (soccer) fans. The museum sits next door to the stadium, bringing fans closer to the city’s favorite team through a series of interactive exhibits and galleries.
One of the city’s most popular attractions, the FC Barcelona Museum draws an average of 1.2 million visitors each year.
