The museum is small but very nice and shows vintage attributes and commercial stuff. Off course there' the history of beer. After the museum you should visit the bar with an extensive beer menu. The staff is helpful and kind. Every time I visit Alkmaar I end the day with some nice beers in this cosy and warm place.
