Camp Nou – Opening Hours and FC Barcelona Tour
Book a Tour
Camp Nou, the FC Barcelona Football Stadium, was inaugurated in 1957. It’s one of the largest stadiums in the world and one of the biggest in capacity.
Callous witness to FC Barcelona’s victories and defeats, the stadium has become famous worldwide, attracting devotion and admiration from Barcelona’s fans and animosity from rival team fans.
Camp Nou Experience
The Camp Nou Experience is a tour that will give all football fans the chance to explore the stadium. The guided tour includes a visit to the locker rooms, and a walk through the tunnel to the field, just like the players do before the match starts and visitors will also step on the turf, where so many legendary matches have been played.
The tour also includes a walk through the Stadium’s lounges, VIP seats, the bench, and the press room while the English-speaking guide discloses the history of the stadium and the team’s most important victories.
The tour finishes at the FC Barcelona Museum, which is packed with photographs, trophies, and personal items belonging to some of the team’s most legendary football players. These objects reflect the team’s story throughout the years.
For all football fans
The Camp Nou Experience is one of the most visited attractions in Catalonia and the “most visited museum” in Spain, but we would only recommend it for those of you that are FC Barcelona fans or football fans in general. Otherwise, you might get a bit bored.

Whether you’re a diehard fan of FC Barcelona or just interested in finding out what goes on behind the scenes at one of the best football teams in the world, a visit to Camp Nou should be on your list of things to do in Barcelona. Display tables in the Camp Nou museum
FC Barcelona museum and Camp Nou stadium tour review
Once through the turnstiles, the Camp Nou Experience starts with the first of 3 photo opportunities that have been set up along the tour route.
Museum staff take your photo in front of a green screen holding a Barça shirt and football scarf. You’re not obliged to buy anything, and if you don’t fancy having your photo taken, you can walk past.
Espai Johan Cruyff
At the entrance to the museum, there’s a small section dedicated to Johan Cruyff, the legendary Dutch footballer who was one of Barcelona’s best-loved and most talented players. Cruyff played for Barça during the 1970s and then returned to Camp Nou as coach during the 1990s.
FC Barcelona Museum
FC Barcelona museum, just part of the collection of cups and trophies
The tour continues through the museum, where there are four large display tables explaining the club’s history from its beginnings in 1899 to the present day.
In addition to text in 3 languages (English, Spanish and Catalan), there are photos, press cuttings and memorabilia, including vintage football shirts, boots, posters etc.
The tables are flanked by glass cabinets containing the impressive collection of trophies that Barça has won over the years. There’s also a large interactive screen where you can learn about highlights from the club’s history.
Next up is a small section dedicated to the women’s team as well as the other Barça teams (basketball, handball, hockey etc…), followed by spaces dedicated to Joan Gamper, Josep Suñol and, of course, Leo Messi.
The View from the Stands
View from the stands (fisheye lens)
Now that you’ve learned about the team’s history, it’s time to visit the stands and take a few panoramic shots of the pitch. If you are seeing a match during your stay in Barcelona, you can try and work out where you will be sitting.
This is a great chance to wander freely among the rows of plastic seats and soak up the atmosphere. Imagine what it must be like here when the stadium is packed with thousands of cheering fans.
The Changing Rooms, Press Rooms and Mixed Zone
Once you’ve taken a few photos of the pitch, the tour continues downstairs to the changing rooms.
Unfortunately, you only get to visit the visiting team’s changing room, which is pretty sparse. From what I’ve seen on TV and in photos, the Barça changing rooms are more luxurious.
From here, we move on to the Mixed Zone, where post-match interviews with the players take place, followed by the more formal Press Room with seating for 120 journalists.
The tunnel out to the pitch
After the changing rooms and press area follows a short passage decorated with large photos of important moments in Barça’s history (presumably selected to remind the visiting team who they are up against), followed by the tunnel, which leads out to the pitch.
This is the tunnel you see on TV where the players wait just before running out onto the pitch at the start of the match.
On the right-hand side of the tunnel is a small chapel which was blessed by Pope John Paul II when he visited the Camp Nou stadium in 1982.The tunnel out to the pitch
The Pitch and Dug Out
From the players’ tunnel, we walk out onto the pitch, well not right onto the pitch itself, but you do get as far as the sideline and can sit in the chairs where the managers, coaches and players sit during the match.
Like the visit to the stands earlier in the tour, this is a great place to linger for a few minutes, take a few photos and imagine what it must be like to be here during a match!
Barça Virtual Experience with VR glasses.
After visiting the pitch, you walk back up through the stands, where you get the chance to experience a training session and a match using 3D virtual reality goggles.
The Press Boxes and More Photo Opportunities
Next up is a chance to have your photo taken with one of Barça’s many cups before climbing the stairs (or taking the lift) up to the press box, where reporters get a bird’s eye view of the action while commenting on the game.
After the press boxes, we walk back down through the stadium to a third photo opportunity where you get to pose with your favourite player courtesy of a large green screen.
Moments of Barça History and the Camp Nou Shop
Finally, we finish the tour in a section called Moments of Barça History, which is a series of screens showing moments from the team’s recent history accompanied by a soundtrack of crowds cheering and chanting Barça, Barça Barça!
Then there’s a small display with a model of what the Nou Camp Nou stadium will look like when the current remodelling works are completed, due to be finished sometime in 2023.
Lastly comes the three story high FC Barcelona megastore, which stocks all the Barça merchandising that you could possibly need!Close enough to touch (nearly)

Camp Nou is at C/Arístides Maillol 12 in the Les Courts neighbourhood and takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to get to from the city centre using public transport.
How to get there
There are two metro stops nearby, both of which are less than a 10-minute walk from the ground. Follow the signs to Camp Nou from the Metro platform.
Les Corts – L3 (green line) nearest entrance to the ground is gate number 9 (see map below)
Collblanc – L5 (blue line) and L9 sur (orange line) nearest entrance to the ground is gate number 15.
The open-top Hop On Hop Off tour buses also stop at the stadium (blue line).
Time needed to visit
You should allow between one and a half and 3 hours for the tour. If you plan to have something to eat at the ground or are a dedicated Barça fan, it could take longer. Once inside the museum, there is no time limit.
Information in English?
Yes, all labels and displays are in English, Spanish and Catalan. Audio guides are available in English as well as several other languages.The dugout
FAQs and tips for visiting the FC Barcelona Museum and the Camp Nou Experience Tour
Is the Camp Nou Experience a Guided Tour?
The standard Camp Nou Experience is a self-guided tour.
There is lots of information explaining the club’s history in the museum, and Camp Nou staff will indicate the route you should follow if necessary, but they are not tour guides.
Audioguides can be purchased at the entrance to the museum and cost €6.
There are also guided tours with English-speaking guides available although you have to book in advance.
Yes, I found the audio guide interesting, and it added to my visit.
I wouldn’t say that it is essential, but if you are interested in the history of FC Barcelona but don’t want to spend lots of time reading all the display boards, then I think it’s a good choice.
In addition to the museum, it also guides you around the rest of the stadium, where there are no display boards to read.
The audio guide itself is a small tablet which, in addition to the audio, includes video clips and photos as well as a quiz about what you have seen during the tour.
If two or more of you are visiting, then you could, of course, share one between you.
When you pick up the audio guide at the entrance to the museum, you are asked to leave a bank card as security which will be returned at the exit. If, like me, you don’t want to leave a credit card, then a driving licence is also acceptable.
No, in my opinion, it’s not worth it. The VR video only lasts about 3 minutes or so, and, unless you’ve never tried VR goggles before, it is pretty unimpressive.
Is there anywhere to eat inside the Camp Nou stadium?
Yes, there is a bar inside Camp Nou with views of the pitch, plus several fast-food restaurants at the entrance to the Camp Nou experience where you can get something to eat and drink.
There are also plenty of restaurants and bars in the surrounding area.
My favourite restaurant near the Camp Nou stadium is La Riera (only open at lunchtime).The Camp Nou Chapel, which was blessed by Pope John Paul II
Should I purchase my tickets for the Camp Nou Experience online in advance?
Yes, online tickets cost €3.50 less than buying tickets at the stadium, plus they allow you to go straight to the museum entrance without having to queue up to purchase tickets.
Buy FC Barcelona museum and stadium tour tickets online>>
Having said that, unlike the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell, the slots don’t usually sell out, so there’s no need to buy your tickets days in advance.
If you’re not sure exactly when you will be visiting Camp Nou, I recommend that you bookmark this page and then check back when you’re in Barcelona, keep an eye on availability, and book tickets the day before you plan to visit.
Please remember that the tour doesn’t run on match days or the day before champions league matches.
If you want to be as flexible as possible whilst still having a pre-booked ticket, open tickets are available. These are a good choice if you want to avoid queueing for tickets but aren’t sure exactly when you will arrive at Camp Nou.
What’s the best time to visit the Camp Nou Experience tour and FC Barcelona museum?
The museum is usually less busy in the morning.
Is it still worth taking the Camp Nou tour if it’s raining?
Yes, I’d say it’s a good thing to do on rainy days (not that there are many rainy days in Barcelona).
The only section of the tour where you aren’t undercover is when you visit the dugout and side-line, and if you are unlucky with the weather, you could skip this bit if you want to.
I already plan to see Barça play at Camp Nou. Is it still worth taking the tour?
Absolutely, the tour gives you exclusive access to parts of the stadium where you can’t go during a match (press box, press area, changing rooms, tunnel, side-line, dug out etc.
Plus, the museum tells you tons about the club.
If you’re a fan visiting Barcelona to see Barça play, I’d say that the Camp Nou Experience tour is a must.
Is there free WIFI available at the stadium?
Free WIFI is available at the Camp Nou stadium, although I’ve heard that the coverage is pretty poor.Approaching the Camp Nou stadium from gate number 15
How long will it take to get from my hotel to the Camp Nou Experience?
This depends on where you will be staying. From Plaça Catalunya or the Sagrada Família by public transport, it takes between half an hour and 45 minutes.
A taxi from central Barcelona to the stadium will take about 20 minutes and cost about €15 (depending on traffic).
Would the Camp Nou Experience Tour be enjoyable for someone who isn’t a football fan?
It’s a hard one to call, but I think that if you are interested in the history of Barcelona, then you would find the museum interesting.
Apart from the football, the trophies and the club’s history, it also helps you understand why the club means so much to so many Barcelonians.
Can I take photos inside Camp Nou and the FC Barcelona museum?
Yes, photography is allowed throughout the tour and museum. The only no cameras sign I saw was at the spot where you could have Camp Nou’s photographers taking a photo of you with one of the trophies.
What’s the deal with the photo opportunities?
As I mentioned earlier in this article, there are 3 photo opportunities set up along the tour route where Camp Nou staff take your photo in front of a green screen.
At the first one, right at the start of the tour) you are handed a Barça shirt and scarf to pose with.
In the second one, you get to pose with one of the team’s many trophies, and at the last, you pose in front of a green screen, and they Photoshop in your favourite player from the current Barça squad.
You can walk straight by if you want, but it’s good fun, and there’s no obligation to buy the photos if you don’t want them.
At the end of the tour, you are shown all the photos and can choose whether you want to purchase any prints. Prices range from €20 for one printed photo and all the photos in digital format to €60 for a souvenir album withfour4 printed photos (you choose which ones) and all the pictures in digital format.
If you’re visiting with your family or a group of friends, then it’s a fun way to immortalise your visit and a nice souvenir.
Incidentally, when I visited, I chose not to purchase the photos, and when I said that I wasn’t interested and walked off, another staff member asked me (in a relaxed and friendly manner) why I hadn’t purchased them. When I replied that the photos were nice, but I didn’t want to spend €20 on a print, she asked me whether I’d be interested in buying all the pictures in digital format for €10.
