The Brussels sewers are a gigantic subterranean network which counts, only on the municipal territory, more than 320 km of sewers and 30 km of collectors. The museum is open to group visits, by appointment. Individual visits are not possible.

Sewers (click to zoom) This network is indispensable to an effective evacuation of waste water.

The Service of the Sewers of the City of Brussels answers the numerous questions people worried about the environment may ask.

The Service is equipped with an exceptional tool for this purpose: the Sewers Museum.

The Museum is also the opportunity to honour the sewer workers for their difficult, dangerous but indispensable work.
