Football fans can now visit a pop-up museum at The Beach which celebrates the life and career of Cristiano Ronaldo, TimeOut Dubai reported.

The Real Madrid superstar, who has won every major club competition in the game, won't actually be in attendance at any point, but fans will be able to see his trophies and personal memorabilia from his life in Madeira, Portugal, Manchester and Spain.

Hosted by Miguel Paixão, the star's best friend and former teammate at Sporting Lisbon, the CR7 museum will be located opposite Operation Falafel until January 31.

Guests will be able to get up close and personal to trophies like the Golden Ball, Golden Shoe, Champions League, Premier League and La Liga, as well play interactive games featuring the current holder of the Ballon d'Or. Paixão will also be on hand to discuss the younger Cristiano, before he was famous.

A lifesize waxwork of Ronaldo is available for photo opportunities, as well as numerous pieces of merchandise.
