Not really a museum. You get in there, watch a video and then have a small beer. In my opinion not really worth the entrance fee (although if you go with the b card its worth it for the beer). IMO you'd be better off going to a brewery to learn about the art of making beer.

Some harsh reviews. It's not a massive museum, it has a bar, a reconstructed old and new brewery (non functional) and a couple of videos explaining the styles and process. Get a beer at the end, takes an hour in and out for 5 euros. Can't go wrong.

What's not to love about a beer museum, especially a museum that is owned and run by a club that makes their own beer. While it is pretty much in the middle of Brussels, on the Grande Place no less, it still is hidden away and if you don't know about it (or haven't done your research) you might end... More

This is really more an information film than a museum, but we found the film, about the history of beer production, interesting. There is a pleasant bar area for after the film, with old vats and barrels. There was a small glass of beer included in the price.

Your 5 Euro entrance fee basically pays for the beer tasting. There are 2 rooms, with some posters, some brewing equipment, and a video playing (couldn't hear any audio besides a track of monks chanting). Not likely that you'll learn much about the history of brewing. They didn't charge me anything for my two children.

Can't really add a great deal more than other reviewers - had to describe as a museum although the tiny bar and ante room is full of quirky brewing paraphenalia and devices...beer taster - average - video presentation - long but informative if you know nothing about beer and the area..if it's raining there are worse place you could spend...

If you've a hour to kill its worth having a quick look around but there isn't a great deal to see in there to be honest. The video presentation is about it really.

There is only 1 room with a big poster about beers on it, and that is it. The beer you get with the ticket is of very poor quality! it shouldnt be classified as belgium beer. I would NOT recommend this to anyone!

The first room is very cool but when you go inside you realize it's just a video and it's all. At least you get a beer with a 5€ fee.

Just in case you don't know how beer is made, stop on in. Or even if you do know, stop in and take the short tour. It is followed up by a free(included in admission) beer. Today it was Trappist. Wonderful.
