I was in two minds about trekking out to the museum, and was SO glad we decided to do it. The museum lays out the story of the origin of the EU and explains its values, how it works, and the ideals it strives for. Naturally the story is positive, and feels a bit like propoganda, but the story remains... More

Interesting place with free access for everyone. For entering into this building, you must go through the metal detector. Inside it, you can see a lot of interesting presentation about structure and future of European Union.

From an educational agenda point of view it's very interesting. Also, it gives you a better idea of the political spectrum of the EU.

Off course Brussels is the main seat of the European parliament and you should visit it. But if you are a European citizen and you got history at school and paid attention to classes ! most of the information is not new. As an improvement area I suggest to include some elements that can only be done in Brussels, like... More

Having to go through security to get in was a blag, how much you enjoy this depends on how much you want to read masses of information. We just had a stroll around and watched a few videos but couldn't be bothered with the full audio tour. Nothing special - shops pretty funny though!
