The Sewer museum

Pavillons d’Octroi - Porte d’Anderlecht, 1 - 1000 Bruxelles

Plunge into the depths of Brussels to discover 400 km of underground ramifications and their mysteries...


The Sewer museum which is located under the pavilions d’octroi near Porte d’Anderlecht gives a closer look into the belly of Brussels and what happens in the 350km long sewer network located underneath the city.

The museum is the ideal school excursion, you can follow the traces from the faucet to the water purification station, you can participate in an active visit around the water cycles, You can celebrate your birthday in an adventurous way by exploring the underground universe, as well as take a look at the new exhibition by PAROLE. In other words fun for young and old!

The museum shows the hard labor of a sewage worker like the cleaning of sewers, basins and ground divers, the maintenance of connections, unblocking of the gutters or private branches and this in a dark, humid environment and uncomfortable positions. During storms the sewer workers only have a couple of minutes to climb up to safety, before the sewers flood.
