Camp Nou Experience Tickets in Barcelona

Barça is a world-known soccer team, and the passion for its colors transcends all borders. So much so that visiting Camp Nou, the stadium of FC Barcelona, is one of the most popular experiences in the city.

1. Types of Camp Nou Experiences

If during your visit to Barcelona Barça does not play at home (or simply, you cannot or do not want to go to the match), there is the possibility of visiting the Camp outside the hours and days of the match:

This is the most basic option for visiting the ground, as it includes the no-queue entrance to Camp Nou and the Barcça Museum. Once inside, you can independently explore FC Barcelona's dressing rooms, walk through the tunnel onto the pitch and tread the turf to get a footballer's perspective on a match.

You will also have access to the chapel, the press room, and the presidential box, and you will be able to visit the FC Barcelona Museum, whose exhibition is made up of interactive elements that tell the history of the club and take you on a journey through its best moments. You will also see objects donated by prominent players of the team, football-themed works of art by artists such as Dalí, Miró, Tàpies, or Subirachs, and an exclusive area dedicated to Messi.

Recommended: If you are on a tight budget or simply prefer to visit Camp Nou at your leisure.

If you want to take your visit to the next level, a guided tour of the Camp Nou is the perfect way to feel like you are living a match day.

This tour picks you up by bus in the center of Barcelona and takes you to the Camp Nou for a 3-hour guided tour during which you will see all the places open to the public: the changing rooms, the pitch, the press room, the chapel and corridors of the stadium, the box and its bar, where you can have an appetizer included in the price. You will also be able to visit the complete exhibition of the FC Barcelona Museum.

Please note that the return transfer is not included, as at the end of the tour you will be able to continue exploring Camp Nou at your leisure. The maximum group size for this tour is 50 people.

Recommended: If you want to extend your visit to Camp Nou and prefer to have the transfer organized for you.

This is an express tour with a reduced duration of 1 hour 30 minutes, visiting the same spaces of the stadium. You will also have the opportunity to continue exploring Camp Nou at your leisure at the end of the experience.

The stadium

Not only will you see the grass and the stands, but you will also see the bench where the FC Barcelona players sit, the dressing rooms where you can imagine the coach motivating the players with a speech the minute before they go out to give their all on the field, and the tunnel through which they go out on match day to meet the roar of thousands of fans.

Then you can visit the press room, the Mixed Zone, where the players comment on the key play after the match, and the room from which the commentators broadcast the match.

The FC Barcelona Museum

The museum focuses on exploring the history of the club and its sporting achievements. Perhaps the most interesting thing to see is FC Barcelona's Champions League trophies, glistening in their display cases, and you might be delighted to know that you can have your photo taken holding a Champions League trophy.

Another highlight of the museum is the section dedicated to Lionel Messi, considered one of the best soccer players of all time, where you can see replays of his best goals and a summary of his achievements throughout his soccer career. Also, the museum houses works by Catalan artists related to soccer and usually shows temporary exhibitions related to this same sport that are usually worth seeing.

Virtual Reality Experience at Camp Nou

You can take a tour of the Camp Nou with virtual reality goggles, and although the experience only lasts a few minutes, it transports you directly into a match day. You'll see the players in action, the stands packed with fans, and feel the stadium magically come to life.

It is included in most tours but if you decide to visit Camp Nou on your own, you can experience it by ordering the glasses at the ticket office. It costs 9 dollars, which is a very good price for an extra that will definitely add something special to your visit.

Alex's Traveller Tip

Avoid green clothes! When having your photo taken in the field, the color of your clothes will blend in with the green of the grass, spoiling a picture that you will surely want to keep for a lifetime.

6. About the tickets to Camp Nou

Camp Nou and the FC Barcelona Museum are one of the great attractions of the city for tourists, so I recommend you to buy your tickets in advance to avoid queues and make the best use of your time. In case you want to take a tour, the only way is to book in advance. At the Camp Nou ticket office, you can add the Plus option to your ticket, which includes an audio guide and a virtual experience.

7. Organize your visit to Camp Nou

More than a club
More than a club

Here are a few tips to help you organize your visit, which will come in handy especially if you are not going to take a tour of the stadium and are going to visit it on your own:

How to get to Camp Nou

The easiest way to get to the stadium is by metro, getting off at any of these three stops: Les Corts (L3), Badal (L5), or Collblanc (L9). The distribution of Barcelona's metro is quite simple so I recommend you to find which of these three lines is the closest to your accommodation and go directly to Camp Nou.

To move around Barcelona by metro it is best to buy a T-Casual card, a 10-trip pass that you can use in all methods of public transport. You can also buy single tickets, but if you are going to travel by public transport in Barcelona it is much better to buy the 10-trip pass.

If you prefer to go to Camp Nou by bus, any of these will leave you at the door or quite close: 50, 54, 57, 70, 75, D20, H8, H10, and V3. The downside of going by bus is that traffic in Barcelona is usually quite congested so it will take a little longer, something to keep in mind when planning your visit.

Opening days and times

Camp Nou is something special, as there are a good number of days a year that it is closed for matches. The official opening hours are as follows:

  • From April 2 to October 7: Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, Sundays and holidays from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm.
  • From October 8 to April 1: Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm, Sundays and holidays from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm.

Match days

No tours are available on League or Spanish Cup match days. The FC Barcelona Museum opens up to 3 hours before kickoff and reopens 90 minutes before kickoff, until kickoff.

On Champions League match days there are no tours and only the second floor of the FC Barcelona Museum can be visited until 3:00 pm. The day before the matches the route of the tour is modified and all areas of the Camp Nou and the Museum can be accessed except the second floor of the Museum.

FC Barcelona can change the schedule or admission conditions at any time and for any reason, so if one day you are unlucky enough to have a special training session or any other reason, you may not be able to take the tour or access the museum. Also, from July 1 to August 31, during Easter Week or Christmas there are special schedules that you should check on the official website of Camp Nou as they vary each year.

Best time to visit the Camp Nou

If you want to visit Camp Nou avoiding the crowds of tourists, I recommend you go as early as possible. At 10:00 in the morning there are still not too many visitors and you will be able to walk around the field quietly and then you will have the whole day to explore Barcelona.

However, keep in mind that the high season for visitors is between April and October, so if you're going to be in Barcelona during this part of the year you're bound to find groups of tourists at Camp Nou.

How long does it take to visit the Camp Nou and the FC Barcelona Museum?

It totally depends on your passion for soccer, but most visitors usually spend between 1 hour 30 minutes and up to 3 hours on the Camp Nou Experience, which includes visiting the stadium and touring the Barça Museum.

8. Last tips

  • As you know, it is best to arrive as early as possible at Camp Nou to avoid the tourist crowds. The busiest time for visitors is just after lunch, around 2:30 in the afternoon.
  • I recommend do not wear green clothes, as it will be confused with the grass of the soccer field and the photo will not look very nice. And since you are only going to get one shot, you better get it right!
  • Wear comfortable shoes. You'll be doing a lot of walking throughout the visit and you'll probably continue exploring Barcelona afterward, so sneakers are going to be your best option.
  • If it is raining, take a raincoat with you, otherwise, you will get wet when you go out in the countryside.
  • Remember that there is an official club store at the stadium, where you can buy your favorite player's jersey and all kinds of merchandising. If you forget something or don't want to carry bags, there is an FC Barcelona store at the airport Duty-Free.
