Venue type: Indoor
The National Football Museum is a great place for the active family to have some fun and learn more about your favourite sport!
Throughout the museum there are interactive objects, games and displays that help keep kids engaged and involved. The terrific FootballPlus+ simulations are for over 7s only as they require users to kick, stretch, run and react quickly, so with kids too young you might want to navigate round that bit without them seeing!
As fair compensation to the little ones however The Discovery Zone on Level 2 is especially for the Under 5s where they can enjoy dressing up, a lounge in story corner and a small soft play area!
Lockers, cloakroom and baby changing facilities make taking the whole tribe almost a simple matter, plus The Cafe at the National Football Museum has lunch boxes and serve small portions for smaller appetites. They also have high chairs and are very happy to warm bottles for you, so kids really couldn't be more welcome.
Admission is FREE: or make your visit even more memorable by buying a ticket for the Football Plus experience: test your speed, accuracy and compete with the family! You can also take a penalty shot and have a go at commentating! Tickets can be purchased on entry or throughout the museum.
