Fiver in and you get a beer included which is the only selling point. You go down the stairs and it's just a pub, with a rubbish video being shown out the back beside some brewing equipment. Don't bother.

We visited here with the full intention of seeing the exhibit, but after three hours of drinking beer with the host we weren't able to walk that far. The host was very friendly and knowledgable about all sorts of things, I forget his name but I do remember that he was from Tunisia. The bar area is small but very... More

This is a really great place on the Grand Place. For 5 Euro one gets to visit the museum, see a very educational video, and get a glass of beer, The beers are special...they are from several different breweries and different styles...usually light and dark..changed every day or so if one comes in every day they will get a different...

Right off the Grand Place, in a beautiful old building, with the entry-way displaying several antique pieces of brewing equipment, I had high hopes for what was inside. However, the area of the museum that you are allowed into once you pay the 5 euro, is all stainless steel equipment used in modern brewing, and the only real thing to... More

Only thing that made the entrance fee worth it is the free beer. Very small and the only thing I learned is the patron saint of beer makers is St Arnould

The place is well done to transport you back in time. however there are only limited things you can do inside, some videios, some machinery and that done. However enjoyed the beer though a little steep at 5 euros.

The Beer Museum of Brussels . . . leaves much to be desired. It's more like pay 5 euros and receive a pamphlet, see a couple displays, watch a video and receive a beer at the end. Which to their credit, the beer at the end is pretty good! We were somewhat fortunate to find this place near closing time.... More

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
