This place offers a wealth of information regarding how and why the EU was formed as well as it's function in today's society. It's incredibly interactive and forces the visitor to actively engage with its content and facts. Very visually stimulating and masses of information to digest. Worth a visit if history and politics tickles you...

A really nice musuem, very intercative and loaded with a huge amount of intersting information (almsot too much). If you are interested in the way the EU works and in its history, I would really advice you to pay it a visit!

It was shut up when we went. A big building that doesn't really stand out like place or many other buildings. Thought at least you could have coffee there but no visible places to visit.

I was hoping to be better educated on how the EU Parliament functions, particularly in regard to democracy, and the benefits it provides. I left feeling what a waste of my time and a massive waste of EU taxpayers money. It is a large modern building with an abundance of multi-media, interactive presentations. This seems to be the EU's solution to the problem of having 24 languages to contend with. It saves on paper and the absence of any hard copy wording is very noticeable. This makes the audio guide essential. I did not find it intuitive to use and somebody eventually helped me out. The introduction was walking through a tunnel with phrases from 24 languages playing. Educational value 0. A major part of the visit was a huge number of small screens each showing a photo from different parts of Europe from the pre-war years to the current day. Potentially exceedingly time consuming and uncomfortable to see, stand and listen. I did a walk past the majority of it. I did note that the exhibition was in the process of being updated to cater for Brexit. I also noted that the 1966 photo of England's world cup victory over West Germany, of which I had the privilege of attending, must have already been removed. One of the two exhibits I found somewhat useful was a model of the Hemicycle with delegates positioned and coloured according to nation state and European party. Another exhibit seemed to be a very large floor map with a few people pushing dalek type pods around. I assumed they had inbuilt vacuum cleaners and this was an eco way for cleaning the floor. The really useful exhibit was a few large leather armchairs and sofas that had screens attached. They were far more comfortable than the hard boards provided for resting in the photos exhibit. I could have spent more time with them. Not too sure what was on the screens though. If you are in the area, have some time to spare and it is throwing it down with rain, then I would recommend the Parlamentarium but just head straight for the comfy armchairs.
