“Love the exhibition!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The staffs were very helpful. The exhibition was really good and the audio guide is the best I've used so far. A very interesting place to learn about the EU.

“European Parliament Information”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The Parlamentarium is the information-centre of the European Parliament (EP). You will get a lot of information not only about the history of the EP and the EU, but also on the impact, the EU has on every-day life in Europe.

Expecially the virtual information are interesting.

“A bit overwhelming”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Enjoying a visit to the Parlamentarium, and learned quite a bit about the European Union. However, it's a bit over-done and we got tired of it after a while. The technology used to tell the story is top class, as long as you get an earpiece that works properly! It's a huge establishment and very interesting to visit - and it's free!

“well done, engaging, educational, and FREE”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The parlimentarium was the highlight of our brief visit to Brussels. We found the interactivity refreshing and very well done, and the staff exceptionally hospitable. Loved the 360-degree film, historical survey, and dearth of EU trivia. And what a great experience for free admission!
