Brewery Museum in Pilsen
The Brewery Museum is located in a historic 15th-century brewing house that has been preserved in its original form. The museum’s display presents not only the history of the city of Pilsen, the development of crafts, the origin and boom of guilds, but also the beginnings and development of the brewing industry. The tour will take you through a unique late-Gothic malt house, the so-called malt kin, roller and laboratory and on to the original cellars with cooling rooms. The Brewery Museum’s building is connected via an underground corridor to the Pilsen Historical Underground, whose 19 kilometres rank it among the most extensive underground systems in Europe.
