The exhibitions are spread across three levels and on the tour you’ll delve deeper into the context behind the first floor’s collection of almost sacred memorabilia and artefacts. As you make your way through the chronological timeline of the game’s incarnation, with balls from those first significant matches to the shirts of modern legends, you’ll hear the full version of the stories and scandals that have shaped English football to become the most popular sport in the world.
