This museum is carefully assembled, very modern and nicely thought. From the beginning of the visit it's making clear that it can neither present the whole history of Europe nor attempt to pack everything - they propose a historical journey of the oldest continent. Some people find offensive the fact that they aren't criticizing directly the atrocities of the european wars and colonialism. However, the audio-guide is using a subtle way to judge / condemn the morally depraved moments of our European history by suggesting to the visitor open questions.

Just no. Tone-deaf exhibition not acknowledging Eastern Europe except for Socialism and the Fall of the Iron Curtain. Our guide kept glorifying colonialism as white men's burden and attempts to civilize Africa. It was cringy and embarrassing, like your Grandpa talking about the "Good Old Days". (good for whom?) Dont go if you are interested in a holistic and inclusive perspective on Europe or a critical discussion about its history. Just don't.

As someone who grew up in the US, I knew the basics about WW1, WW2, and the cold war but didn't realize how many holes there were in my overall understanding of European History until I visited this museum. It's incredibly interactive and engaging and with six floors of displays, you could spend days here. (We caught it just before closing so we came back the next day and the day after, we liked it so much! Of particular interest was the display comparing and contrasting Hitler and Stalin, as well as the World War 1 memorabilia. And best of all, it's free, and open until 9pm during the week!

It was a little difficult to find as it was not in the EU parliament as we had thought. It was extremely interesting and painted a great picture of Europe throughout history. It was interactive and you could hear the tour towards your interests. Best of all it was completely free. They had free lockers you could store your bags and coats as well as free audio tours. A great experience after learning about European Union Parliament.

I arrived in the afternoon so only had around an hour, but I managed to quickly go through all the floors and I think it tells a very interesting story. Tablets on all EU countries languages are a great idea. And it is free!
