Barcelona Football Club museum:

This is one of those few sports clubs having more than 100000 memberships ever since it was started in 1899. With superb performance in the game of football, way back in 1920 Joan Gamper had suggested for a Barca museum but it became a reality only in 1984. This club is the only club in the world to collect its earlier trophies and prizes and exhibit it. The museum is grouped into many sections, while one section is dedicated to the awards and prizes; the other section depicts Tapies, Dali, etc.

The other section depicts the collections on the subject of football. This museum is located next to Camp Nou, the famous stadium. The visitors to the museum have two options, either visit the museum or visit the stadium. A visit to the stadium includes the place where lockers reserved for the players are located. The actual playing area, the press gallery, the podium where the president of the club is seated during the match, etc are the other places of interest which are related to the game of football.
