Please note: We'll be reopening our turnstiles on Thursday 27 May 2021. Book your tickets online!


Throughout the museum there are interactive objects, games and displays that will appeal to all ages.  In keeping with government guidelines, our Discovery Zone is temporarily closed to visitors.  While our current activities and events programme is temporarily on hold you’ll still find trails to take part in during your visit or you can download some of our trails here before your visit. 

Some of our interactive activities are still available including Penalty Shootout. To get the most out of these we suggest they’re suitable for children 7+.

If you’re planning a visit and are aged under sixteen you must bring an adult with you and family groups must stay together – this keeps everyone happy and safe!

To help you plan your visit, look out for:

Currently our toilets are open on the ground floor (near the exit and before the shop) and at the top of the staircase just before you enter the Pitch Gallery (Level 2). Baby changing can be found on the ground floor.


There is a lift to all floors. This is currently only available on request, with just one family allowed group allowed in at a time.

We’re completely accessible to prams and pushchairs with lifts to all floors and an automatic entrance door. We also have a place to park your prams and buggies on the ground floor if your youth team want to stretch their legs.


To ensure the safety of all our visitors some of the quizzes and games aren’t currently available.  There are plenty of hand sanitisers throughout the museum which we encourage you to use before and after touching any exhibits or cases.


Can you seek out some of football’s top treasures? Pick up one of our family-friendly trails on the Welcome Wing, and see if you can find the answers – and objects – on our galleries!If you would rather download the trails yourself to print at home, you can do so by clicking here.


Our shop is stacked full of gifts and souvenirs, with something for all the team and plenty of pocket money gifts for the kids!

Our cafe is currently serving hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and cakes along with children’s meal deals.  Please ask for a high chair if you need one.


We want all our visitors to have a great time but we also want you to feel safe. We’ve put together some Q&As which show what we’re doing to keep the museum as safe as possible for everyone. National Football Museum Q&As
