The only thing that's a little worthwhile would be the beer at the end of the tour. We bought the Brussels card, so we didn't have to pay to get in, I would not recommend it if you have to pay for the admission fee. They only show you videos.. about beer.. or video screen on the brewery tanks.. quite... More

Not so much to visit, we payed 5€ obviously for the beer and not for the museum itself. The old school brewery reconstitution is nice but the place is too poor compared to what we expected. We wanted to learn more about the bear and the breweries

We strolled across this museum randomly while walking through the square. We figured €5, why not. As others have said, it's basically a small bar and a room with a looping video and various brewing equipment which isn't explained. You do get a beer so it's not a total waste but you'd be better off going to a nice pub... More

We were tired from walking and in need of toilet facility in the Grand Place when we discovered this place. It says Beer Museum with an arrow pointing down the narrow stairs. Entry fee 5 euros and you get a free beer at the end too. Got inside and to a seating area in the middle, bar to the right,... More

Not really a museum... a couple of old / new tools they use for brewing, plus a long video that has music from a 90s club!! Beer was however good. I didn't appreciate the guy moaning to another customer about everybody speaking to him in English. I addressed you in Dutch, your choice to respond in English - Brussels is... More

This was hardly a museum. The building is great, but there is little to no information about the brewing process or history of Belgian Brewers. The admission is only 5 Euros (free with Brussels Card) and you get a free beer, so you can't be too mad. I wish they marketed it as a cool bar instead of a museum... More

A complete waste of time and money, this place is a joke; if you want to see a YouTube video of Belgian breweries for 5 euros go a head

Small museum near La Grande Place near the statue of Everard 't Serclaes that you rub for good luck. One room explains to you the brewing process with a short video, and the other is a recreation of an old brew house with artifacts with a generous tasting of a local secret beer. If you are nice enough to the... More

There are 2 exhibits here, basically 2 rooms. 1 room is a reproduction of what a brewery might have looked like 100 yeas ago in Belgium. And the other room is a reproduction of what a modern brewery might look like. No real content to explore here. The best part - you get 1 beer as part of your entrance... More

Don't bother with this place. IT IS NOT A MUSEUM. It's a room with a terrible video and then you go to a tiny bar and get a small beer all for €5. Waste of money.
