At our Visitor's 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.

As the first ever citizen's 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. « less

This is an amazing building that your can tour. Lots of hands on activities. I'd say it's great for folks age 10 and above. Awesome for adults! I truly had an amazing visit!

Not even in our guide Book! We thought it was great - very informative! Agree that not very well advertised / signposted - but we found staff very very helpful. Learnt a lot - which is partly because I had previously been so uninformed!

We had a few spare hours before our Eurostar train back to the UK, so we thought we should visit here to kill some time and learn something. Firstly, it is VERY hard to find from the underground/tube/metro station. There are no signs and we were totally reliant on the excellent Tripadvisor Android App. My pregnant wife was actually trapped... More

Interesting and good presentation oft European history. It is for free and really good implemented. It reminds that we can have freedom and no war in Europe only if we learn to work string together.

I'm not sure why I was expecting the European Parliament's visitor centre to be quite interesting - but I was, and therefore I was a bit disappointed. Considering it is the parliament for the entire EU I found the whole thing to be a bit limited and uninspiring. I also feel the centre didn't inform me about anything that I... More
