This stadium is falling apart, literally. It's interesting enough to visit, though. From downtown take a taxi, it's rather difficult to reach. The museum is interesting and holds the many cups Uruguay's national team won two world cups, after all. There's a small shop, too.

We got to walk up to the entrance of this stadium.. we heard about the 100 year history, hence its name, and got a quick glance inside... it's very large and impressive!!!

The museum isn't that great but it is cheap and you can get a great view of the pitch when inside. Make sure to have a qr scanner so that if you want it in English you can listen to the information.
