Description: FREE ENTRY. Experience the European Parliament in Brussels like never...
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!

Good if you want to know mroe about the EU

The Parlamentarium offers a lot of information and I would recommend it to anyone, who is interested in the EU, especially it's history.

This place is just propaganda for the EU. It doesn't tell an accurate story at all, it just paints a picture of the EU saving Europe. We were there on the day Greece were about to leave the Euro and you'd never guess anything was wrong (ever). They have also spent a fortune on the place but no one ever... More

Very interesting. You can learn in a very interesting and fast way what is main goal of the European Union, some history about it and how it currently operates

There is tons of information about European Parliament here, but it's just not presented in an accessible or exciting way. may it would be more fun for kids and it is free and indoors so if the weather is nasty it's probably worth a visit. Overall though, even for people like my friends and me who are interested in politics,... More

A challenging museum/propaganda display. Too much to read too much to do, not particularly young children friendly

Very interesting ( and free) museum, with an historical an political path from 1900 to 2050. The films and interventions of the main EC politicians are very interesting

Very interesting experience with so many details, interactive pieces, free entry and free audio guide. Anyone under 12 might have trouble spending more than 30 minutes here. Yes it's interactive but not enough for the 5-10 minute attention span of kids these days. Don't feel like you shouldn't go if your country isn't a part of the EU. I enjoyed... More

If you have interest in a bit of history about EU reform, then its for you. It is big and I thought it was good to see.
