Scottish Football Museum
Revealing the sights, sounds and stories of the world’s favourite game in the country that took football to the world.
Spend a day enjoying Scotland’s record breaking football heritage in the amazing setting of Hampden Park. Pay tribute to the legends who inspire the champions of today on a journey from past to present.
Scotland is the birthplace of the world’s first football club (Edinburgh, 1824), the official birthplace of international football (Glasgow, 1872) and the home of Hampden Park, once the world’s largest football stadium with the record-breaking capacity of 149,415 in 1937.
When reopening Hampden Park in 1999, it was appropriate to open a museum which celebrated Scotland’s significant contribution to the beautiful game. On show are collections which display and preserve the history of the game in its widest form.
The Stadium Tour
The Stadium Tour is a must for visitors to the Museum. On the tour you will experience Hampden Park like the players do on a match day – visit the underground roadway, team changing rooms, walk down the tunnel, hear the famous ‘Hampden Roar’ and then follow in the footsteps of legends by climbing the steps to the cup presentation area.
Daily tour times: 11am, 12:30pm, 2pm & 3pm (subject to events within the Stadium, so please check our website before your visit)
The Scottish Football Museum Hall Of Fame
The Hall Of Fame is a permanent feature in the Scottish Football Museum to honour the truly great players, managers and officials who have reached the pinnacle of their profession and have made a significant contribution to Scotland’s football reputation through their skill, spirit and determination. The Hall of Fame, currently celebrating 104 football legends, has quickly established itself as a ‘must see’ for every true football fan and everyone involved in this great game.
