The FC Barcelona Museum, also know as the President Núñez Museum, has been the city’s most popular museum over the past decade attracting more than 1,200,000 visitors each year.
Located within the club’s grounds, Camp Nou, it was opened on 24th September 1984 by the then president, Josep Lluís Núñez, whose name was given to the museum in 2000.
The museum stretches over 3,500 m2, and as well as displaying all the trophies the club has won over its history, and all kinds of objects belonging to the players past and present of all the sports the club takes part in, the visitor can enjoy audio-visuals and multimedia in different languages that offer an in-depth account of the club’s long history. The museum also has many works of art related to the world of sport by Catalan artists, such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Antoni Tàpies, Josep Segrelles and Josep Maria Subirachs. There is also a permanent exhibition called Col·lecció Futbolart, owned by Pablo Ornaque, and considered to be one of the finest private collections about football in the world, comprising of all kinds of objects, some of which are priceless.
In 2010, the museum was given a complete facelift, bringing it into the 21st century, including the addition of numerous audio-visual and multimedia areas entitled, “the Camp Nou Experience”. The entrance ticket includes a guided tour which allows the visitor to see parts of the stadium that are usually off limits to the public. These include the presidential box, from which you can experience the spectacular view of the stadium from the president’s seat, the players’ changing rooms, the press room, and even step on the Camp Nou pitch.
As well as all of the above, the museum also has a Document Centre with a library, press archive, and a photograph, documentary and video archive. The centre, which was opened in 1994, is an essential tool for those who wish to find out more about the club.
