With today being a bank holiday along with my son and his pal and his dad John we took the opportunity to pay a visit to the National Stadium. At £24.50 for a family ticket for the tour and the museum it represents great value. The tour was supposed to last 45 minutes but due to the numbers on the 12.30pm tour our guide Blair extended to this to almost an hour. Despite the numbers Blair managed to hold the attention of the group which was made up of people of all ages from some as young as 3. A lot of interesting information on the tour and for my son the highlights were getting into the warm up area and having the power of his shot recorded on the monitor behind the goal. Another was reliving the 18th March 2012 when his team Kilmarnock walked out of the tunnel on their way to winning the cup beating Celtic 1-0 in the final and how he and his pal Ryan enjoyed leading the party out. Getting the chance to stand at the side of the park was also great how for him, giving him the chance to follow in the footsteps of the many greats over the years such as Puskas, Dalglish, Zidane to name but 3.
Once back there was opportunities to ask questions to Blair and his colleague Bruce as part of the museum tour and nothing was too much trouble for them. The museum is up to date and well laid out and throughout there’s plenty opportunities to get photos so don’t forget the camera.
All in all an excellent way to spend a good 2 to 3 hours and at that price it represents great value. The only thing I would like to see is more merchandise available in the shop and a wider selection of books / programmes and I feel there’s a missed opportunity there.
Many thanks to Bruce for the tour today. We were on the 3.30 tour (the 3 Sheffield united fans) and really enjoyed everything about the tour. Realy enjoyed meeting Bruce and his colleague Sandy and talking football. Best wishes to them both, and of course to Killie and the well.
Easy to find and to park this really is an excellent and worthwhile visit. We spent hours there and had to be told to leave at closing time. There was so much to see linking football with fascinating social history. I particularly liked the interactive displays.
Really good to see behind the scenes, guide knew his stuff and mad the visit really enjoyable. Good fun and good value.
Went with primary seven and the kids has a superb time. Lots to see and the staff were so helpful. well done
Just the fact that I had my son with me who was so excited at seeing stadium and getting his pic taken on the pitch!! staff were very informative, we loved all the old fashion footy gear!!
Whilst the current Scotland team are not enjoying much success on the international circuit, the memorabilia contained in the museum is very comprehensive and takes any football fanatic back to the “good old days”. This is also the venue for some pre-London Olympic events.
Well laid out with a lot of things to see and a lot of stories to read. If football is your thing come on in and when you done there is the shop & a wee Cafe too.
We visited the museum as party of the Party package on offer for my 9 year old and I could not praised the staff enough. They were helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The tour guide was Bob and he was great with the kids and catered to their age group. The kids got the chance to play a 20 min 5 aside game in the players warm up area (not included in the normal tour) and the kids thought this was great especially when they got to measure the speed of their kick. The facility was set out well and was a great place to have a Birthday Party. Thanks to all the staff who made it a great day……
