Based within Hampden Stadium in Glasgow, the home of Scotland’s national team since 1903, the Scottish Football Museum contains one of the world’s most impressive collections of football related objects, memorabilia and ephemera.
From grassroots to the professional game, the Museum tells the story of Scottish football and how it has become a key part of the nation’s identity and cultural heritage.
European triumphs, domestic victories and international adventures are celebrated within the collection, which also reveals the influence of pioneering Scots on world football and how these trailblazers helped establish clubs, leagues and national associations in every corner of the globe.
Priceless artefacts, dating back to the very first international match and the very origins of the global game, tell the story of football and show how the game has changed across the decades, for clubs, players and fans alike.
The museum also hosts the Scottish Football Hall of Fame, which honours the 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 Scottish Football Museum exists to promote the unique football heritage of Scotland, to build and maintain a national football collection, and to educate and inspire future generations.
Opened in 2001 the Museum is in the top three per cent of visitor attractions in Scotland and became the first museum in Glasgow to receive the prestigious Five-star accolade from VisitScotland.
The Museum has been formally accredited by Museums Libraries Archives as a non-government funded national museum hosts special exhibitions throughout the year, making it an ever-changing landscape.
The Museum is open seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday and from 11am to 5pm on Sundays. Restrictions may apply on matchdays and during other events and visitors are urged to check our website before planning your trip.
