FREE ENTRY. Experience the European Parliament in Brussels like never before. At our Visitors' Centre, children and adults alike get to discover what the European institutions that represent them are all about in a refreshingly new way: the Parlamentarium. Our Portable Media Guides take our visitors through an interactive journey of European integration, revealing the impact this process has had on the everyday lives of Europeans. As the first ever citizens' exhibition to do so, the Parlamentarium caters to all 24 official languages of the European Union, and is completely free! Our facilities and multimedia guides have been designed to be fully accessible to those with special needs.

My family and I (wife and two adult children in their 20's) were all looking forward to this visit. We started with a guided tour of the Hemicycle (the parliamentary chamber itself) which was fascinating even though it was not in session. This takes about 30 minutes and as with the Parlamentarium itself you are provided with a multimedia hand... More

It is free, that is the major perk! It is really nicely done and you get a fancy 'smartphone' headset thing who is interactive as you walk around. You can also lock up your coat and bag so you don't have to drag it around. If you fancy a walk, have time to kill, or love the European Union then... More

The parliament should have a better selection of guided visits instead of this insulting museum. Waste of public money.

Worth to visit the parlamentarium and learn a bit of how the European Union works. A lot of displayers and information to spend at least 3 hours. ⏳

Very imformative museum about the history, and present, of the EU. The audioguide was very useful, although I would have perhaps preferred a bit more of the information to have been available outside of the interactive elements, but can understand that it would be difficult to do this with so many languages to cater for. I thought that I already... More

It's a museum and has all sort of information and free stuff to get to know how the european union works, why it was created and when and so on. It is very interesting.

Museum is free. You are given an electronic guide which is set to your language preference. The guide interacts with displays to give audio and/or written explanations in your language choice. There are lots of human guides to assist with the technology. At times it was too interactive - I got a bit fed up with interacting with so many... More
