Football in Barcelona closely resembles a religion, and FC Barcelona are the gods. The Camp Nou museum and the stadium of the same name nearby are among the most visited attractions in Barcelona. The stadium Camp Nou (known as Nou Camp in the rest of Spain) was built in 1957 and restructured for the World Cup of 1982 to accommodate more spectators: today it is one of the largest stadiums in the world that can seat almost 100 000 people. The club boasts the largest fanbase across the world, as somewhere around 156 000 people support Barca officially, and the number of members continues to grow.
Fans of the great game who do not have an opportunity to go to a game of the Catalan team would find visiting the club museum worthwhile. The best parts of the collection are the photo-exhibition, the video collection of best goals, and a view of the stadium itself. For more football-savvy visitors there is also an exhibit of old table-top sports games, a leather football of 19th century and a full-size diorama of a retro dressing room, plus old posters and magazines, as well as a collection of relics devoted to foosball.
There are tours of the stadium itself that not only include the pitch, but also the team dressing rooms, the tunnel that leads to the pitch, and the president box. There are no tours on game days. The museum is open from 10 am to 1 pm.
