Egouts de Bruxelles
The Musée des Egouts (sewerage system museum) at the Porte d'Anderlecht (crossroads of Boulevard de l'Abattoir and the Chaussie de Mons) is not unique to Brussels... far from it!

Ran by the "Service des Egouts de la Ville de Bruxelles" the museum presents a vital part of the history of today's Capital of Europe. Formerly a victim of the sporadic tantrums of the Senne river and surrounding marshland, Brussels only obtained geographical stability when the river, coined "open-air sewer" for many years, was definitely covered up. A genuine, but rather pleasant, descent into hell, the visit costing 3 euros is definitely interesting.
