“A disappointment.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

A very small museum with not much to see. The highlight being the small beer at the end of the visit.

“Not a museum”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

It's really just a bar that gives you a leaflet about beer and shows you a video on how beer is made... that is it. Really nice beer though and it's just a €5 but it should not be advertised as a museum

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Was in the Grand Place and saw the sign for the beer museum. Was a disappointment. The good news is the cost was 5 Euro per person, and you got a small beer out of the deal, so didn't feel cheated, but not much of a museum or bar for that matter. I did receive an informative pamphlet that taught me a bit about Belgium beer though. That was good.

“Cute museum but could be better”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The building and its history are quite impressive. Inside you have a cozy spot for a beer after a quick museum visit. However, the museum does not offer much value for money. Aside from some brewing equipment used in the 18th century and a few other pieces, there is a film. I was expecting more information about the history of belgian beer and types of beer. You learn some of this if you sit through the 15 minute film. The admission fee essentially covers the beer. This could be a great small museum if there was a little bit more or if information was better presented. I struggled between rating this poor or average. We did, however, have a nice time and enjoyed a beer.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

€10 to watch a short film and have beer, just not worth it. Spend your time and half the money on a beer (probaly overpriced) in a cafe on the Grand Place instead, you will feel better for it.
