Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Musée des Égouts Bruxelles (Brussels Sewer Museum) with additional information or photos.

The Brussels Sewer Museum lets you tour part of the working sewer system below the city. The subterranean museum contains many old photographs and models of the sewer system’s construction and operation. The most interesting part, though, is the short self-guided tour through some of the working sewer tunnels, with water—and whatever else—flowing beneath.

Know Before You Go

The museum entrance is in small rectangular building in a median (former toll booth). The hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s closed Sundays, Mondays, January 1, May 1, November 1, November 11, and December 25). It’s also closed based on tunnel conditions, such as during or after a heavy rain. Check the museum website to confirm if it’s open prior to visiting if the weather’s bad. Admission for 18 or younger or a Brussels city resident is free. Otherwise, it’s 4€ for students, 6€ for seniors, and 8€ for adults. If using public transport, take trams 51 and 82 or bus 48 to Porte d’Anderlecht.


There's a pamphlet given out with some information in English, but the rest of the museum was mainly in French.
