  • Pretty organized and free. To anyone who wants to learn about the modern history of Europe and not only but also how the European institutions work well worth the visit. You need enough time to browse in the Museum (about 3 hours), and at the entrance you can get audio guide in your language. Don't forget at the end to tell your opinion on the future of Europe. Highly recommend!

  • Saw the truth only on the outside but inside to get in this time we have not planned, there was very little free time, and the show should have been many more. Passed around to the Park, looked at pofotografirovali. View the Parliament rather pleases the eye and the inner world of man, how would you say to yourself, "well, here I am and near the European Parliament ...!" so to speak in "the heart of the EU." Be in Brussels and not see the Parliament, is the same as not to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris. but I think ... Next time try to get inside.

  • Very nice insight in the European Union! We went here on a school trip to Brussels. The meeting room is very impressive, although they told us when we were there that the MEPs are only here once or twice in the year. There main meeting point is in Strasbourg. The meeting room is mainly used for conferences. We also talked to personal assistants of MEPs in the building, that was very impressive. The metal detectors at the entrance are great for security, but putting all your stuff in trays is very irritating. I hope that I can go back there one time!
  • Very short audio visual guide. Have to go through security understandable. See the chamber. But actual time of guide is about 10 mins.
  • Nice staff for visiting hemicycle, they are polite and helpful. Last Friday there were a lot of people for last turn, at 11:00h, and there wasn't enough tickets but they let us to enter. We are extremely grateful for their kindness. They speak a lot of languages, at least the 24 european official languages. In addition, this huge modern building is more important than we know, because they legislate about daily topics in our life.
  • Brand new building with great function. Easy to enter through security and watch discussions in session.
  • Had unexpected visit there. I have so many good memories of visiting European parliament
