Nice museums with modern tablet to use as you go around learning about beer.
I had the tasting beers at the end which were very nice.
Good location as well being just around from the main square and tower

My husband and I went to this experience on a cold day. My husband enjoyed learning new facts. The tour is interactive with IPADS which allows you to find out as much information as you would want. It took us around an hour. We finished the tour with a beer tasting which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Good interactive tour of beer history. It would be great if we could see how it is physically made. We bought the tasting tickets which my partner really enjoyed - good value! Unfortunately the personalise your own bottle experience wasn’t working on the day we visited.

Hello 93Charlotte19! Brewtiful is absolute the word to use. Unfortunately we don't brew the beer, but we present the whole beerculture in a novel and different way where you can use the gained beer knowledge to appreciate the final product! ;-) Cheers!!!

Another inexpensive attraction in an expensive city. Belgium loves beer and this comes across in the Beer Experience. Your favourite part was the tasting in the bar at the end. The staff were great (as was the beer)

The beer experience is a nice stop if you're interested in learning about beer making in general and Belgium beers in particular. I suggest doing the tour and the three beer tasting. They're not full pours but you get to choose from two dozen options.

Visited the museum and was very impressed. The interior was very simplistic and I particularly loved that you could get the information via a tablet so if there were several people around a piece that you were interested in, it didn't matter.
You also get a significant amount of information, not just the history of beer and beer making but a lot more. The best bit was that you got three tokens of beer in the bar area which was very good value for money.

This new Beer Museum in Bruges tells the history of beer in a trendy way. You scan objects with ipads and discover everything about beer. It's in a beautiful location, right on the central market square (above post office). And best of all: tasting of 3 beers included in the entrance price.

Their interactive Ipad tour is amazing. I learned a lot about the history of beer. The best part was they have an interactive tour for kids to do as well. It shows them pictures and tells them a story. My son loved this, and it made it so we could all enjoy the tour. I recommend trying their Red Fruit beer as one of your samples. It was delicious!

Hi there! How lovely that you all had a good time in our museum. We have indeed included a tour for the children, written by a well-respected Belgian author. This makes the tour enjoyable for everyone. Thank you for sharing your experience!

We had a great tour at the museum, the staff were great and provided excellent guidance with the beer tasting. I really enjoyed the use of Ipads and the layout is very user friendly ( there are a few stairs but they are nothing excessive ). Excellent value for money as also included in the ticket price is 3 generous beer tastings (150ml), there are 12 or so beers to choose from. The cafe/bar is also a very nice place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the streets while you taste some local brews.

As previous author states you go round the museum with an ipad and it will either talk to you or you can read info. I liked the fact you could get a great view of square whilst learning about beer. Really liked the hops, herbs - touch and smell area on top floor. Highlight was 3 x 15cl of different beers / soft drinks of your choice at end again with great view over square. We went back to bar for sneaky beer again because of price and location. Staff friendly and should promote free drink more as "free taster" doesnt cover it.

Hey Emma, thanks for you review! We're glad you enjoyed our museum! And you're right, maybe 'free tasters' sounds a bit too small for what it is ;-)
