Camp Nou Stadium tours are the best way to live Europe’s largest, most historic football stadium.
Home to legendary FC Barcelona, aside from taking the field yourself (you actually can!) the Nou Camp tour is the best way to experience world class football.
In fact, this Barcelona stadium tour is the second biggest tourist attraction in Catalonia behind the epic Sagrada Familia.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to visit Nou Camp in one handy guide.
Camp Nou Tour Tickets: Where to Buy
ATTENTION: from May 29th 2023 Camp Nou will start an aggressive renovation project. During the renovation it won’t be possible to book traditional Camp Nou tours.
From June 7th, the only tickets you can get are for the Immersive Tour, which includes the museum visit with English audio guide + access to the audiovisual space Spotify Camp Nou Live.
You’ll find many online ticket resellers, but we recommend relying on our collaborator Tiqets, which help us to keep this blog (which we’ve dedicated 1000’s of hours to) free 🙂
Here’s a link to book the only current Camp Nou tour left:
Every Camp Nou booking helps us get closer to doing this blog for a living, so thank you 🙏
The Camp Nou Museum
It’s here in this modern and interactive space that you appreciate just how good this club is.
You’ll start off listening to the team anthem with a translation in just about any language needed.
It’s in the museum where you can flip through touch screens with tons of info on the club’s greatest players. You’ll also get a great snapshot into the team’s history watching a video presentation of some of the club’s biggest moments on a massive screen.
⚠️ Warning ⚠️: Barcelona’s top two attractions must now be booked in advance.
You can book fast track tickets to both individually or get them as part of a discount pass:
- ⛪ Buy now: Sagrada Familia Fast Track Admission (skip the lines)
- 🏞️ Buy now: Park Guell Fast Track Admission (skip the lines)
- 🎟️ Buy now: Best of Barcelona Bundle (Sagrada + Park Guell + 10% discount code for all else)
You will not be able to book these tickets on site – lock in your tickets ASAP or you could miss out.
You can take a selfie with the 22 League trophies and 4 Champions League trophies on display – there’s just a ton of memorabilia and equipment spanning the club’s 100+ years of history.
Top it all off with a visit to the largest official FC Barcelona team shop.

Adding the Camp Nou Museum Audio Guide
The audio guide, available in English, is not included in the standard ticket and must be added during the booking.
It costs €6.00 and I recommend it only to those who are truly interested in curiosities about Barça.
You can request earphones or bring your own headphones.
The duration of the audio guide is about 1 hour and is concentrated in the museum part, so if you are accompanied by someone who has little patience, perhaps it is not for you.
Expect the audio guide to go into deep detail about:
- Paulino Alcantara’s shoes (the first Messi of 1910)
- The history of the first FC Barcelona stadium
- What happened during the Franco dictatorship
- Anecdotes about the goalscorer Kubala in the 1950s
- The construction of Camp Nou
- Tidbits about Johan Cruijff, Maradona, Ronaldinho, and Messi
- Much more.
This is our favorite part! Here you can try to beat the world’s best keeper – which is actually a robot.
Three shots cost €6.00 and you can pay it straight to the guy at the start of the queue.
There’s really only one way to score here, and that’s burying it Beckham-style into the top corner 😉
In fact, there’s a video online of Messi and Neymar missing – so good luck!
Oscar naturally buried his first shot, then decided to retire.
Final score: Barcelona Hacks 1 – FC Barcelona 0.

Camp Nou Stadium Tour History
By the late 1940’s rising football power FC Barcelona had outgrown the Camp de Les Corts and needed a new stadium to house all the new fans generated by star striker Ladislao Kubala.
Cue the aptly named Camp Nou (‘New Camp’).
The city broke ground on this UEFA five star stadium on March 28th, 1954.
When the last brick was laid Camp Nou had a capacity of 99,354. The ground was set for some of the greatest teams in football history to frustrate opponents – like hated rivals Real Madrid.
Long before any tours of Camp Nou the stadium hosted the Olympics, World Cup (with 120,000 spectators including added standing tickets), the Champions League Final, and even the Pope.
A €600 million Camp Nou renovation project is currently underway – but the games go on!
