Please note: We are now open again Thursday - Sunday 11am - 4pm. Book your tickets online now!


We’re a great place for you and your family; have some fun; kick a ball; share some memories and of course discover more about your favourite game.

Throughout the museum there are interactive objects, games and displays that will appeal to a wide range of 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. (activities can also be downloaded here).

Most 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:

There are toilets on the Pitch Gallery (ground floor), Match Gallery (level 1), Play Gallery (level 2) and level 4. Baby changing can be found on the ground floor.

The Cafe at the National Football Museum is a great place to relax during or after your visit. We have lunch boxes and serve small portions for smaller appetites. We have high chairs and are very happy to warm bottles for you.

The museum is packed with displays and games at lower levels and which appeal to younger visitors; there are lots of interactive screens and quizzes, and chances to touch, smell, draw and play in the museum. We hope many of these displays will genuinely appeal to all ages!

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.


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


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!
