• An audioguide is available to individual visitors (€2).
• For groups, the museum offers various types of visit, which you can read about here.
If you come to the Sewer Museum, you can walk along about fifty metres of the collector sewer of the Chaussée de Mons/Bergensesteenweg. This large sewer collects waters from secondary sewers, including those of the Boulevard de l’Abattoir/Slachthuislaan.
Still in use, it is sometimes flooded when there are heavy rains. In such cases, access to the collector sewer and the Senne is closed for safety. The museum’s rooms nevertheless remain accessible.
If the collector sewer is closed during your visit, the museum guards will give you a ticket allowing you to return free of charge to access the collector sewer.
It takes around one hour to visit the museum.
It all depends on whether you wish to read all the information, follow one of our activity guides with your child, try our immersive audioguide, take a guided tour, etc.
Please note, first of all, that these little rodents are very useful for the good functioning of sewers. They help reduce waste in the sewers by nibbling at it.
Rats are afraid of human beings. They are more afraid of us than we are of them. If you should happen to see one, this will most certainly be from far away and only if you are among the first visitors of the day.
No particular gear is needed, but if you really want to get into the shoes of a sewer worker, bring your boots and torch!
