Get closer to football's greatest stories this summer with our free World Cup-themed guided tours.

A 30-minute trip around the globe - starting with the ball from the very first World Cup final between Argentina and Uruguay, the tour takes in key moments from past competitions including Pele's shirt, passport and medal from his first World Cup appearance in 1958. No World Cup tour is complete without a nod to '66; the Jules Rimet trophy and the ball from the 1966 final are on display, along with Maradona's 'Hand of God' 1986 shirt. Our collections then bring you right up to the present day with BBC Sport's 'History Will Be Made' tapestry on display and a history of Russian football, shown through posters, objects and shirts.
