Beer fans will want to take time to visit the Bruges Beer Experience, which offers an interactive look at all things beer, from how it's made to how to pair it with food. Upon entering the museum, you'll be given an iPad to help guide you through the various exhibits, along with headphones for the audio portions of the tour. There is also a bar on-site with 16 draft beers.

Recent visitors said the tour is fun, interesting and informative, and that a visit to the museum is a great activity for a rainy day. Others said that while the iPad is a fun tool for interacting with the museum's exhibits (reviewers especially liked the quizzes), there is little interaction with museum staff or other visitors as you're all looking at your screens.

You'll find the Bruges Beer Experience off of the Markt. The museum is open Sunday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets cost 16 euros (about $17.75) with three included tastings. Tickets without tastings cost 10 euros (about $11). Entrance for children ages 5 to 12 costs 6 euros (about $6.60), and children younger than 5 are admitted free. For more information, visit the official website.
