A single admission to FC Barcelona Museum costs now double as much as a single ticket to Paris’s Louvre. After fees were put up this summer, tickets to the gallery of the Catalan giants are now dearer than those at the worldwide-known Museum of Modern Art or MoMa in New York.

In any case, admissions to the Camp Nou Experience cost now 23 euros ($31) plus audio guide, having been put up by 22pc, as reported Diario Gol this week.

Admissions fees at the MoMa are set at 25 dollars (18 euros).
