Great way to learn more on how the EU was created. Very interactive and appear to appeal to the younger audience. Do check their webpages for opening times. There was a cafe with reasonable choice of foods.

Interesting, dense, but actually too dense: it's hard to get a straightforward overview of the European Union's history + some of the sophisticated interactive attractions don't actually make a lot of sense. And of course, it's very pro Europe without really giving a voice to...More

Everybody should visit the Parlamentarium. You dive into the history of European Union. No matter of you are European or not, this is World’s history! It’s free, they give you a tablet at the entrance and you can choose any language from the EU.More

We waited for two hours for the show. I didn’t really like the show, but, it would have been really nice with a different show.

Really enjoyed the parlamentarium, it is an interesting, hands on experience. You can go through all the EU countries, discover how and why the EU was formed and the existence of the Euro, and it goes through how the parliament works. Highly recommend this.
