  • The parlementarium is a museum to do although I think it could be better. Clean and Nice, staff facilities, lockers... The Museum is completely free. The audio guides are distributed and then visit in total autonomy. However too much to see read and listen. He would spend an entire afternoon to do everything. It is unclear what to read and listen in priority... too bad this museum to yet a lot of potential with all the same things interesting. Deserves a passage only if in the corner...

  • 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
