Celebrating its first anniversary on Oct 25, the German Football Museum in Dortmund is currently staging a special exhibition on the controversial winning goal of the 1966 World Cup final at Wembley stadium.
The new special exhibition ‘Wembley 50 Years On – The Legend in Pictures’, which runs until 15 January 2017, looks back to the 1966 World Cup and the infamous winning goal in the England vs. Germany final at Wembley. To this day football fans still passionately debate whether or not the Geoff Hurst shot that took the score to a decisive 3-2 crossed the goal line after hitting the crossbar. An installation of never-before-seen video footage, photographs and original sound recordings relives the twists and turns of that match.
Having welcomed over 200,000 visitors since opening, the German Football Museum has got off to a flying start and is already one of the most visited museums in the Ruhr valley.
The vast exhibition space includes multimedia installations, interactive exhibits and a substantial collection of original artefacts, giving visitors an in-depth understanding of the beautiful game and the appeal it holds for millions of people around the world.
The permanent exhibition looks at some of Germany’s most famous footballing moments: the Miracle of Bern, the ‘match of the century’ between Italy and Germany at the 1970 Mexico World Cup and, more recently, the national team becoming world champions in Brazil in 2014.
