FC Barcelona Museum

Posted by on July 4, 2018

Yes! There is a museum dedicated to the FC Barcelona team. It’s mostly for the FC Barcelona football team but they do have some items for the other sports such as basketball. However, most people who go to the museum are there to see the trophies, mementos, and other relics of the FC Barcelona football team.

FC Barcelona has been very successful over the past 100+ years. Yes, I said over 100 years – some of these football clubs were founded in the late 1800s or early 1900s so they have a lot of history behind them. Which explains why the museum is packed full of trophies. 100+ years of being in existence does that.

The museum is always changing as they loan out their trophies to be shown elsewhere as well as the team continues to win new trophies as well. I think the team tries to maintain a last year’s trophy stand so people can see what they’ve won in the recent past. FC Barcelona’s best year was in 2011 when they won all 6 major trophies, being the first team to do so. Can you say “sex-tuple”?

The one trophy that I really wanted to see was the 2014-15 Champions League trophy because I watched the team win against Juventus in the final game when they were in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, another well-known famous place with a lot of history behind it as well. But more importantly, the 2014-15 FC Barcelona team went on to win the treble (they won La Liga, Copa del Rey, and then the Champions League). In the year of 2015, the team won 5 major trophies so in addition to the first 3 trophies mentioned, they also won the European Super Cup and the FIBA Club World Cup trophy as well. An awesome haul, indeed. Still 2011 was the banner year – 6 major trophies!

I wasn’t there but I saw via TV the team win the Champions League trophy and completing the treble.

Of course, Messi has some stuff in the museum as well. All of them replicas as the real ones are probably in his house or somewhere safe and sound like a baby.

2 of Messi’s Golden Boots. Obviously, just replicas but it’s still nice to see what kind of silverware he picks up on a regular basis for the being one of the best players in the world.

Messi’s Ballon d’Or, one of the prestigous awards in the world. This is generally given to the best football player of the year. All accomplishments are taken in consideration so if the player does well in both international competitions and for his club, he has a real good chance to win.

Tip: If you haven’t been to a FC Barcelona game before, it’s a good idea to go to the museum so that way you are more familiar with the layout of the stadium, Camp Nou, before you go. Yes, seeing the stadium is part of the museum tour. It’s recommended that you go to the museum on a non-game day because that way you have access to the dressing room and go out onto the field (aka pitch). You just have more to see even though I thought the dressing room was nothing special – like any other locker room. It’s only special when you imagine that you are one of the players on game-day putting that Barca shirt on and then looking around to see world-class players all around you – Messi, Suarez, Ter Stegen, Rakitic, Busquets, Pique, Dembele, Umtiti, Coutinho, Iniesta (before he retired this past year in 2018 or more like left Europe), etc.

Looks like they are maintaining the grass with special UV lights. I’ve seen other football stadiums and they don’t take care of it like they do in Barcelona! Ever seen your neighbors take the scissors out to cut some long blades of grass? Yup, they do it too at Camp Nou!

Players coaches bench

You can walk out to the area where the players and coaching staff come out and sit during the games. If you already have tickets for a future game, you can also figure out where your seat might be.

And if you want, you can get your photo taken with the players.

Too bad it’s not real but digitized. I wished I were super good and signed with FC Barcelona. Notice that Messi no longer has the dyed blond hair these days!

I think it’s a must-see place if you’re in Barcelona. Forget the beach, forget Sagrada Familia, forget everything else. Just go to the museum and to a game and you’re golden!
