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. From 20 November 2014 until 15 May 2015, the Parlamentarium is hosting 'Fashion Art EU' as its latest temporary exhibition. Come and see 28 outfits, each one designed by an artist from a different member-state, all reflecting the common values of Europe!

Very interesting & educational. Should be on every one's list. Find out what exactly EU is all about. And what our MEPs do.

If you already know the basic history of the European union and how it works in terms of political decisions, it's quite a waste of time. The guided tour explains the basic concepts around the European Union and it repeats a lot of times the goodnesses of it without leaving any margin to the bad sides or conflictive points. Despite...

If you ever want to know something about Europe, it's history, how it was build, it's the place to go. Only "bad" thing is that the prices for "souvenirs" are rather high

If you are into Europe or into European history, or even fashion, you should visit the Parlamentarium. It is worth to ask for an audioguide as you can listen it in all the official languages of the EU. The Parlamentarium is like an exhibition, a very fine and entertaining one, as it is quite interactive. You will enjoy it. In... More

If you're interested with all the goings on within the EU, this is the place to be! It's an interactive museum with young-ish and vibrant staff. Very informative and most of all, it's free. It does pass the time.
