As the first ever citizens' exhibition to do so, the Parlamentarium caters to all 24 official languages of the European Union, and is completely free! Our facilities and multimedia guides have been designed to be fully accessible to those with special needs.

First of all, it's free! The exhibitions inside did a really good job of explaining the history of the EU project, with multimedia sections which cleverly accommodate all of the different EU languages. The timeline of photos was really interesting and unexpectedly moving. I think...More

It’s free so it’s great on a cold wet day or a Monday when in the city. You are given a guide which translates each of the exhibits information into many (and in most cases your own) languages. It’s an interesting wander through the history...More

The exhibits are confusing and outdated - but yet the history is interesting. The Nazi Propaganda exhibit from the US Holocaust Museum was easily the best thing. Definitely go on a Monday when everything else is closed.

This is a fascinating insight into the democratic process of the European Parliment . It is free to visit but be prepared to queue as the security, as you would expect is very tight. Use the website to plan your trip as access may be...More

Had some free time in-between planned group activities and decided to drop by. The building complex and surrounding grounds are impressive to explore, the exhibits are worth a quick look. The impressive portion was seeing the large conference meeting room that accommodates the 750 EU...More
