What to see and how to visit the Camp Nou

The Barcelona Camp Nou tour will allow you to admire the guest changing rooms, the access tunnel to the pitch, the Messi area, the benches area, the press room, the Barcelona FC museum and the multimedia space.

With the visit to Camp Nou you can feel that thrill and the same emotion that the players feel when they go through the tunnel to access the field and you will see the changing rooms of the visiting team, which have seen several champions pass. In addition, you will be able to enjoy the impressive view of the stands and bleachers of the field from the presidential box, sit on the benches where the players sit and see the press room where the conferences take place. All this, with the company of ad hoc sound effects and visual effects with backlit images, to fully relive the history of FC Barcelona.

In FC Barcelona Museum, inaugurated in 1984, in addition to audiovisual documents and objects that tell the history of the club, is housed a collection of artwork sports themed created by well-known artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies. The museum includes:



  • the Trophy Room: keeps all the trophies won by Barça.
  • the Zona Messi: it is an area dedicated to Messi where his five Golden Balls, the three trophies of the Golden Shoe and other prizes won by the champion are exhibited.
  • the multimedia area: an innovative part of the museum where there are interactive tables, which allow you to relive all of Messi's goals and see many other images (and videos) about the team.

Useful tips for visiting the attraction

  1. Get up early: the ideal would be to reach the entrance by 10:00.
  2. Buy the city card: If you are interested in other museums or attractions in the city, you can buy the Barcelona City Pass and save on admissions. For the Camp Nou tour there is a 20% discount on the purchase of tickets online.
  3. Priority ticket: buy your skip-the-line ticket to skip the lines Camp Nou: Barcelona FC tour and museum
  4. Minimum time: the Camp Nou Experience lasts about an hour and a half. I recommend that you dedicate at least 2 hours of your time. If you are a real fan, you could spend a whole morning here!
  5. Watch out for the metro stop: depending on the access door indicated on the ticket, it is advisable to get off at certain metro stations. If you have access 1-10, get off at Palau Reial with the L3 line (11 minutes on foot), access 11-16 Collblanc stop and access 17-18 Badal station with the L5 (6-7 minutes). Access 19-21 Les Corts stop with the L3 metro line (8 minutes on foot).

Historical notes, curiosities and practical info: what to know in brief

Il Camp Nou was inaugurated in 1957 under the presidency of Francesc Miró-Sans, who spent many millions to replace the old Les Corts stadium and, above all, to respond to Real Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. It was completed in 1961 with the money from the sale of Suarez. It is thought, in the future, of a expansion up to 106.000 seats and the construction of a canopy to protect the stands.

Some curiosities: two Champions League finals were played here, several final stages of the '64 European Championship and the 1982 World Cup. In addition, the field was used to host major concerts and other sporting events.

Generally the Camp Nou Experience ends, after seeing the pitch and having access to spaces not allowed to the public (changing rooms, benches, tunnels, etc.), in the well-stocked official shop of FC Barcelona. Or rather, you can't help but enter to buy something!
Il tour lasts about 90 minutes but you can stay as long as you want and, as I said before, dedicate a whole morning if you want and have time available.

Keep in mind that if FC Barcelona plays at home or there are Champions League matches you will not be able to visit it and, in the second case, you will also be closed the day before the match.
Finally, I recommend book tickets in advance (well in advance if you want to watch some games!) and of do it online, as you will save and skip the line. Admission is up to an hour and a half before official closing time - this is a good time to visit the stadium and museum, along with the opening time.
