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.

Extremely interactive and informative role play session lasting for a good 60 mins plus. The year 9 / 4 eme students loved it and then walking distance to maison Antoine for some decent fries stop! Highly recommended.

The parlamentarium is well worth a visit to find out all about what the EU does and how it impacts on the those living in it. It has many interactive displays for you to enjoy as well as an interesting audio comentary. Would recommend a visit to anyone coming to Brussles

the true believers in Europe have done a good job, and even Michael Farage of the UKIP has a slot of time and a chance to address the audience.

I loved the parliamentary process and the historical context with the wars and history why we today need much MORE Europe, rather than less.

well done.

This is a free tourist attraction and well worth the detour from Grand Place. We were given free audio equipment and you can listen to as much or as little information as you like. There were some quirky ideas at the parlamentarium and it is nice for citizens to find out what goes on in this building.

I escorted my daughter's class in a day trip to Parlamentarium. I liked it and found it an interesting place to visit and to learn about the history of the European Union. The kids enjoyed the interactive expositions and the room explaining about the work of the Parlament. I will go back to take my son there.
