In a country where the use of a decent public toilet require a small fees, this venue outshines by providing a good overview of EU structures n countries for free . It is high tech n well presented . Within walking distance from central station.

This was a very interesting museum, especially for an American with only a rudimentary understanding of the EU. Their high tech listening devices take a while to get used to, but provide a wealth of information in many languages. We spent about 2 hours and felt it was a good visit.

I had no idea of the progression or decades of thought that went into creating the European Union. Excellent exhibits and museum illustrating past and present needs of the EU community. Outstanding use of technology in exhibits.

Excellent, free tourist attraction. Wasn't really bothered about going but gave it a go. Well worth it in the end.
