If you are a football nerd, like us, you can´t miss the Cristiano Ronaldo Museum in Funchal – CR7, where he displays his trophies and pictures from special occasions in his career.
You can even be photographed together with him and you can also hold his Ballon dÓr. The pictures will then be put out on the museums Facebook site where you can share it if you like.
The museum opened in December. 2013 and there were a rumour that Ronaldo stayed at the same hotel as us. We looked everywhere to see him but no.
Funchal is the hometown of Ronaldo and he cherishes it. First time we were in Funchal we heard a story that Ronaldo had bought a shop for his sister in the Lido area. We went there and checked it out.
If you don´t like to see the museum you can still see Ronaldo, as a statue on the seafront next to the museum, where cruise ships land.
Anyway, we have to come to terms with that he kicked us (Sweden) out of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil, since he is still a great football player.

You will find the museum at the far west end of the seafront where the cruise ships land just before the fish harbour. It´s in the big red brick building. The museum moved here in late may after beeing located i the quarters above on the cliff.
