Passion for Boca Juniors Museum (Museo de la Pasión Boquense)
This monument to one of Argentina’s most popular sports teams also ranks as one of its top attractions for soccer lovers. Fans can watch match footage in a 360-degree auditorium shaped like a soccer ball and see a collection of jerseys, photos, trophies, and other team memorabilia on display. Stadium tours (not included with museum admission) take visitors behind the scenes for a look at the locker rooms, field, and star player Diego Maradona’s box. Soccer-themed guided tours of Buenos Aires follow the footsteps of Maradona or combine visits to the Boca Juniors and rival River Plate museums into a single excursion.
Things to Know Before You Go
Save money by bundling your museum admission ticket with a stadium tour of La Bombonera.
Be sure to bring your camera; both the museum and stadium offer several worthy photo ops.
Admission is free for children under 5 years of age.
The museum and stadium tours are both wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There
The stadium and museum are in the La Boca neighborhood of Argentina. The best way to get there is to take a public bus or taxi. More than a dozen bus lines service the stadium, and the nearest metro stop is Plaza Constitución, about a 30-minute walk away.
When to Get There
The museum is open daily throughout the year. Check the Boca Juniors schedule before heading to the museum, as access is restricted on game days, depending on kickoff time.
Boca Juniors Versus River Plate
Argentina loves its soccer, and Buenos Aires plays host to one of the sport’s greatest rivalries, that betweenporteño teams Boca Juniors and River Plate. The rivalry dates back to 1913, and the two teams have met more than 160 times since then. For a complete look at team history, be sure to visit the River Plate Museum or take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Monumental Stadium, the club’s home turf.
