The museum was idealized around the time of the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, as part of the expansion of the Centro Tecnico Federale di Coverciano, on the initiative of Fino Fini, president of the Fondazione Museo del Calcio. Ten years later, on 22 May 2000, the museum was inaugurated, in the presence of the then-Minister for Cultural Heritage, Giovanna Melandri, and other federal and civil authorities.

The museum itinerary is divided into six rooms:
The first room is dedicated to the trophies of the victories of the national team in the 1934 and 1938 World Cups, and at the 1936 Summer Olympics. Among the memorabilia is also the shirt with which Silvio Piola made his national debut on 24 March 1935, against Austria, as well as the black jersey worn by Amedeo Biavati on 12 June 1938, the occasion of the World Cup quarter-final match against France.
In the second room is the crystal ball displayed at the inauguration of the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States, as well as a collection of historic pennants. Also on display are the shirts of some international players such as Diego Maradona, Pelé and Alfredo Di Stéfano.
