“Excellent visit. ”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

I have an interest in the EU and history so I was not disappointed by this place. Tour was conducted via a little headset in my chosen language and was very informative. Really enjoyed the interactive elements of the visit. I would have happily paid an entrance fee for this place BUT IT'S FREE!!! I would suggest you would need about 1 1/2 hrs here (if you pay attention to the exhibits) and there is a very reasonably priced cafe, so an easy 2 hours could be spent here. Free lockers provided so you don't have to carry heavy backpacks around (which was a very welcome break for my poor back!) Can't imagine young kids enjoying this but excellent for teenagers 13+ as it's very educational.

“It's just modern.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

After you have passed security control, you will be pleased that all the information you need is in your language (if your country is in EU). With the small digital thing you can chose what ever you want to hear and it's worth to say that everything is digital and technological - you can press and watch almost everything and most off all be interactively involved. You can visit Parlamentarium by yourself, or with friends and family, but I would better suggest to go by big group - I mean the best it would be like in school excursion. Because there is a fantastic activity for groups - an imitation game of how EU parlament makes a deciosions and are traying to found solutions for problems. And this game was awesome! It's just perfect way how to introduce peoples in EU working.
