Fodor's Expert Review Museo de la Pasión Boquense

La Boca Museum/Gallery

Inside Estadio Boca Juniors (aka La Bombonera), this modern, two-floor museum is heaven for fútbol fans. It chronicles Boca's rise from a neighborhood club in 1905 to its current position as one of the best teams in the world. Among the innovative exhibits is a giant soccer ball that plays 360-degree footage of an adrenaline-fueled match, recreating all the excitement (and the screaming) for those too faint-hearted to attend the real thing. Jerseys, trophies, and more are also on display. A huge mural of Maradona (the team’s most revered player) and a hall of fame complete the rest of the circuit. Everything you need to Boca up your life—from official team tees to bed linens, school folders to G-strings—is available in the onsite gift store (shops and stalls outside La Bombonera sell cheaper copies). For the full-blown experience, buy a combo ticket that includes museum entry plus an extensive tour of the beloved “Candy Box" stadium.
