Teambuilding

Discover a unique team building experience at the Sewer Museum that goes beyond the ordinary! Strengthen the cohesion within your team while fostering teamwork in an unconventional setting. Immerse yourselves in the mysterious world of the sewers, where an intriguing challenge awaits.

 

Embark on a thrilling investigation as you encounter the lifeless body of a sewer worker discovered in the main sewer of the Chaussée de Mons. The circumstances surrounding his drowning appear suspicious, prompting the police to assign an officer to unravel the mystery. Now, the Sewer Museum invites your team to join forces with the officer and take on the task of solving this enigma.

 

Uncover clues ranging from personal notes and pollution analyses to work schedules and hidden messages. Your team’s collective efforts will be crucial in navigating this challenging environment and piecing together the evidence. Is the death a mere accident, or does it connect to the deceased sewer worker’s involvement in the fight against water pollution?

 

This immersive experience not only encourages teamwork but also provides an opportunity to expand your knowledge about the essential work of sewer workers and the environmental issues associated with water management and global warming. Elevate your team building activities with a unique blend of mystery, collaboration, and environmental awareness at the Sewer Museum

Little hands like to touch everything ...

Despite the fact that the museum is cleaned regularly, the main drain and the walkway along the River Senne may be dirty.

Therefore, the Museum asks parents with toddlers to be particularly careful.
