About
If you want to learn everything there is to know about beer, come and visit the Brewery Museum in Pilsen. It is located in the Pilsen centre in a 15th-century building with an original license to brew beer, which breathes the atmosphere of the Middle Ages. The Museum tells the story of the production, serving and drinking of beer from antiquity to the present time. Visitors aged 18 and older can look forward to tasting Pilsner Urquell beer there. On your visit to the Brewery Museum, pop in the Na Parkanu taproom, with its unique atmosphere of the 1930s. Go back in time and enjoy remarkable unfiltered Pilsner Urquell beer.

Was in this brewery a couple of times and this place must to be seen if you more than one day in Pilsen. Beer from barrel it's something non ordinary. Also to see huge cans for beer production and"travel" by biggest in Czech lift add impression.

This museum is a nice start for those that want to know some about beer, see some basic glassware, and explore Pilsen on the first-day of the trip. The audio can be bought there or it is free app if you want it on your phone. Just download it before going. This museum is a bit basic. Of course, I say this after doing the underground tour plus the Brewery tour. If I had to rank them, based on what I saw I would:
- Do the brewery if I don't have time for the 3 attractions.
- Do the brewery plus the historical underground tour if I have more time.
- Do brewery, underground, plus museum if I want to enjoy the discounts for doing the combination.
Enjoy Pilsen

After Plzeňský Prazdroj, this one was not interesting. I don't say that this place is bad or so, but after visiting Plzeňský Prazdroj, this place was not interesting. I would call it even boring. Most of the information was repeated for me after the tour that I went for few moment ago. On the top of that, the tour at the museum is done by app in your phone that plays separate comments. Audio is narrated in slow pace so I was bored.
Most of the brewing procedure is illustrated by working figures. I would say that this place is suitable more for children or so.
The most interesting thing at the place was a video that was showing how wood barrels for beer are produced. This was done nicely and it was something new for me, as I haven't see a thing like this even at Plezeňský Prazdroj tour.

The reviews below are misleading !
They are talking about the Pilsen Urquell brewery tour, NOT the Brewery museum.
I read the reviews and went to the brewery museum first, because the reviews were very good. Big mistake !
The brewery museum is ok, but don't spent too much time on it.
The Pilsen Urquell brewery tour is very good, and by the end of the tour they will serve you unfiltered beer from the barrel!!!!

Going to the kingdom of Beer, one can not miss this museum! With tickets which were fairly priced, you get to walk around and hear about the wonders of beer, how it was invented, how it got transformed in what it is today, and how it became to be the trhone of the beer industry.

An insider tip:
- you can download a wonderful app for the museum, so you get a "free" guided tour;
- you get vouchers for a free beer in one of the three restaurants the company owns.

If you find yourself in Pilsen (as I did, while taking a TEFL-certification course), you won't find a heck of a lot to do, that can't be done in other parts of the CR or Central Europe in general. That's certainly part if this town's charm: it's not unique enough to be an overwrought, self-caricature like Prague can be, at times, and never, ever crowded. The Brewery museum, especially the subterranean caverns, is one of the star attractions of--and probably the main association that most people outside of the country have with the town. And oh crap, it's delicious beer they make down there. I didn't quite understand that until my month-long stay here, but this beer is the reason why anyone ever drank pilsener styled beer to begin with. The stuff back home tends to lose all of its glory, likely in the export process, and tastes more like bitter-sweet skunk pee, and most non-Česky pilseners...pale (I'm sorry, really, but I had to do that) in comparison. And most of them aren't brewed in medieval subterranean caves, which your tour will take you down into. But the most memorable part? The unfiltered, special wooden vat of beer that you get to taste (yes, in a subterranean medieval cellar) is delicious and never to be had elsewhere. And it goes great with a great hunk of pork leg, as can be found in the adjacent restaurant. I'm thirsty.

A splendid old building housing a terrific exhibition of brewing in Pilsen. Tour includes a beer and there are great souvenirs in the shop. Part of the old city wall is included. Thoroughly recommended!

So much more interesting and educational then the Pilsner Urquell Brewery tour. This place provides tons of background on brewing beer with a large number of artifacts. Everything in English also.
