    We bought a combination ticket for the museum and the tour under the ground. The museum is not particularly impressive but nice to see. We gathered in the courtyard for the tour under the ground. Unfortunately, the Group was slightly too big (23 people). With a helmet on we followed the narrow underground corridors and the English-speaking guide told about the history. Very impressive and definitely a must. Downstairs is the in the summer around 12 degrees so take a jacket. After you get a free beer in the restaurant.

    To all I recommend a visit to this picturesque brewery museum. It is located in Veleslavínově Street. I remember the visit to beer coasters from the former Světovar brewery in Pilsen. The ticket office you can buy tickets and go on tours to the Pilsen underground.

    The tour of the factory is definitely informative, if somewhat dry, if you're not a beer fan. The Director has been relaxed and Nice. The barrel cellar is compared something vivid and at the end, there was a small cup for each tasting the untreated beer directly from the barrels.

    If you go to Plzen you have to visit: Beer museum, the undergrounds are quite impressive, Saint Bartholome cathedral including the bell tower, Pilsen urquell brewery, drinking beer in the oldest bar of the city (U Salzmann bar/hotel) and also IPA in Beer Factory. 6 waypoints you could compress in 2 days but, since everything is cheap in Czech Rep, I recommend to runaway fast through Paris or London but to take your time to enjoy the beers in the many different bars on the rivers sides and parks. In Prague and Pilsen I had really a very good time

    Small museum, should take between 1-2 hours, but has a lot of interesting exhibits on history of beer and brewing. Suggest also visiting the brewery.

    Eventually it's a trap :) nothing special for your money, didn't try the tunnels, might be better. The museum itself it's kind of boring.
