  • It's a great visitor centre where through movies information is given about the origin of the cooperation between the EU countries and what the EU does for its Member States. However, useful when we go back to the ballot boxes for the election.

  • Clear well explained exhibition on the history of the European Union. Audio tour is very nice and personal pace or emphasis. In the basement you can with desks sliding across the map of Europe and itself the information that you want to know. The different agencies are spread across Europe and are also very diverse: food safety, working conditions, etc. The film about the ins and outs of the European Parliament actually takes you with it. A must see for every European. Now, the importance of the EU only really clear. If you come by car, take the time to make a parking lot nearby.

  • A very informative and well planned 'museum'. It presents the history of European integration, policy evolution and internal functioning. The experience is quite interactive. The dynamic movie used to show the workings of Parliament is very entertaining. Well worth a visit.
  • It's free! And if you are a political/news/history junky you'll love this place even more. I really enjoyed sitting in the mock-up parliament for an informative documentary. Seeing the Noble prize was also neat.
  • Small oasis of peace and beauty within walking distance from the center. Ideal place for a pleasant stay in visiting this amazing city! It was recently restored and is now even better! @gargio76
