Opening times

In the past period when the beer museum had to close its doors due to corona measures, we gave the museum a new look.

From Thursday 14-10-2021 we will open our renewed doors. With our renovated entrance and surprisingly beautiful first floor, we take you on a journey through the history of beer. The 2nd and 3rd floors are of course also available and the entrance fee includes a historic brewery walk through the center of Alkmaar.

Opening period:
from October 14, 2021 to January 10, 2022.
