The Museum - Daily Guided Tours of The National Brewery Centre Museum

The National Brewery Centre Museum incorporates large elements of the original Bass Collection. Learn about the legendary Bass family and their role in the development of brewing. The museum also celebrates the social history of the development of brewing - the real life experiences and stories of the people who helped to build Burton's world-renowned brewing reputation.

Tours start with a holographic-style presentation of the history of brewing, then our experienced guides take visitors through each step of the brewing process and explain the fascinating roles that the steam engines and vintage vehicles on show played in the development of the industry. The William Worthington microbrewery brings the tour up to the present day - with the chance to sample some great local ales brewed on site!
