Admission is FREE; or make your visit even more memorable by buying credits for our Football Plus+ experiences! The museum is a registered charity and we welcome donations to support our work, sharing 150 years of football heritage. The suggested donation is £3, but buying Football Plus credits, or spending whatever you can in our shop and cafe all helps the museum.

We currently offer a fantastic package for any visitor who donates £6: as well as knowing you’re supporting the museum, you’ll get a Visitor Guide, 2 Football Plus+ credits, the chance to take your photo with some of our most famous trophies and, during the week, a 40 minute guided tour. It’s a great way to support the museum and make sure you get the most out of your visit.
