Well done exhibit, free entrance for all. Clearly a selective exhibit of European history, i.e. essentially of the history of Europe post WW2 and of European integration. Still a valuable reminder, to be recommended for all young people.More

Informative multi-media presentations focused largely on the 20th century. The audio tours really help bring the exhibits to life. I’d like more about colonization than a throwaway line about sourcing raw materials. Europeans need more education about the high price paid by indigenous peoples the...More

Nice museum in the European Parliament complex. It is free and they provide headphones that describe the exhibits in detail. I found the WWII exhibit very moving and haunting.More

You do really need the tablet as there are no real signs/printed descriptions. As far as I remember, the tablet had a normal headphone socket so yes, you could connect ordinary earphones.
