Sewer Museum
A living museum - An unusual visiting experience

Did you know? The sewer network under the City of Brussels is nearly 400 km long! Thousands of cubic metres of waste water flow through these 400 km of underground drains and tunnels every day.
The Sewer Museum invites you on an unusual trip into a very hidden side of Brussels but which is absolutely vital for the running of the city. And unlike other museums, this one is active, with the River Senne playing the leading role. A museum that tells the story of when, why and how the sewers were built, describes the jobs that people do in this underground world and explains the city's water cycle. A museum to experience whether you're 7 or 77.

'Broodhuis' - Museum of the city of Brussels
A visit to the Broodhuis (Bread House), also known as Maison du Roi (King's House) is the perfect opportunity to see the collections associated with the history of the water owned by the Museum van de stad Brussel (Museum of the city of Brussels). A model of the 13th-century city helps you to understand the importance of the Zenne, both for trade and the fishing industry. Various paintings, etchings, carpets, scale models and works of art show you the history of the river Scheldt, the canals and the fountains, from the Middle Ages up to now. The museum houses the original Manneken Pis, the most famous fountain in Brussels, which eventually became the city's symbol.
