Did you know? The sewer network under the Brussels Region is nearly 1900 km long! Thousands of cubic metres of waste water flow through these 1900 km of underground drains and tunnels every day.

The Sewer Museum invites you on an unusual trip into a very hidden side of Brussels but which is absolutely vital for the running of the city. An active museum with the River Senne playing the leading role. A museum that tells the story of when, why and how the sewers were built, describes the sewer workers job in this underground world and explains the city’s water cycle.

ZENNE LIED (in & out): Zenne Lied is a choreographed work giving witness to the encounter of bodies and water in the urban environment. This cascade of movement, by Lotte Van Gelder with students from the ISAC and ArBA-EsA, will metaphorically plunge you into the River Senne. This project aims to make the invisible visible – to cast light on what we don't always want to see – by imagining the relationships of artists and inhabitants with the SewerMuseum – one of the rare locations in Brussels.
