Cracking museum! Fantastic interactive guide to help show you round. Really friendly staff too. I spent a whole morning here and learnt a lot. It's free too which is amazing. Would thoroughly recommend a few hours here.

Was such a good museum and free! You have to go through scanners and X-rays to get in but don’t be deterred, there’s a tablet and audio guides throughout in all sorts of languages and loads of fascinating information!

EU Citizens can visit/tour interactivly at EU Parliment, EU History Museum and visit Hemicyle , where decisions are made.
These are free and so well managed. The walks between and in the Citizen's garden are spaces to reflect on Europe, Past, Present and what will the future need to adapt to?
Inclusive and welcoming.
I sopke some French.

In contrast to the 87.349 other museums across Europe that focus on national, regional, or municipal hegemonic (war) stories, this museum is about what we have in common with other Europeans (including that ALL European nations did fight quite a bit with the other European nations). Nevertheless, most of the museum is about the post-war era (WWII) and is documented in a very accessible way.

The staff at the museum is very friendly, and their multi-language skills match the diversity in terms of the many options we could choose to configure the advanced tablets that guided us through the museum. We all got our own tablet -- I named mine 'Jacques D' -- as a digital guide through the museum. The tablets give lots of information as well as voice-over/spoken translations on the videos on the various screens in the museum. Moreover, I think it is quite safe to say that the tablets are also much lighter to carry around in the museum, compared to carrying around the museum's staff. Although, I do not doubt that the friendly staff would also be able to give lots of interesting information. Hence, the tablets have a quit good ratio: Usefulness in the museum / carry-ability.

In addition to the friendly staff, and the technical capabilities of faithful 'Jacques D', I also liked the topical broadness of the museum. While I got a good update about the evolution of the European Institutions, I also walked away with other interesting 'nice-to-knows' that will undoubtedly boost my social status when occasionally dropping these thoughtful insights during casual talks with friends or colleagues.

Very interesting and informativ museum for everyone interested in the history of Europe. Well curated exhibits that foster a better understanding of key moments in the European history. Entry is free and you should take the free audio guide (various languages available) because most exhibits have no other descriptions. You can easily spend a couple of hours here.

The best place to learn about the history of the European continent. It has 5-6 floors with a free audio video guide.
The people who work here are always smiling.
You can spend a good 3-5 hours here learning about everything if you're interested.
Most important Free Entry.

Very well curated museum!
It's free to enter and they have a fantastic audio tour that comes with a tablet with a plethora of information.
Leading through the history of Europe from ancient times to today, there's so much to discover. Lots of little discovery stations for children as well.
This museum is extremely well done and definitely worth a visit!

Entrance is free. I’ve spent here 3.5h and I could actually do more, there is so much to read on the history of Europe. It starts from the very beginning of the continent and is very comprehensive, touches also difficult topics. There are also many interesting items, like the British flag which hung outside of the European Parliament before Brexit. To visit and better understand the permanent exhibition you will need to get an audio guide being a tablet, available in all official languages of the EU. Staff is very helpful in case something gets wrong with it. There are lockers, a gift shop, a cafe. In the centre of the building there is an amazing metal sculpture called “Vortex of History”. It represents the dynamism of European history and letters are quotations from its most important moments. At the top floor current affairs and problems are presented, but there is also a possibility to sit down, have a rest and charge your phone.

One of Brussels' finest and most modern museums, featuring three floors of European history, and the admission is free. Highly recommended!

Excellent museum 👌 Recommend for all European citizens.

I think this museum is underrated! I really liked it, educational, entertaining and quite interactive with the provided iPad, if you like to know the history of Europe then this is the place to go, friendly and helpful staff, it’s free too, I suggest to take your own headset (they provide one but didn’t find them comfortable) and ipad necklace (if you have one) if you don’t like to hold it for long time…

I visited the House of European History’s temporary exhibition “Fake for real” and permanent exhibition late February 2021. The staff was very friendly, the safety measures well respected : the controlled flow of visitors allowed me to browse the exhibition peacefully.
The Fake for real exhibition was pleasantly interactive and the objects’ context was always carefully explained! The tablet provided for the permanent exhibition made it more fun and interactive: the 2 hours I spent there passed by very quickly.
Overall a great, free museum that I consider a must see in Brussels!

The museum is quite well done. Seems especially good for anyone who isn't familiar with European history. But it is also big, it's 6 floors. Plan for at least 3 hours to visit.

Free entrance to the museum. Recommend planning 3-4 hours so you can visit the whole museum and listen to the virtual tour guide.

The house of european history is an amazing experience. It is a must go place if you want to know everything about the history of Europe. It’s a very high-tech museum and they give their electronic pad with audio device. The feel inside is really amazing. You need to book your entrance well in advance through their website. The entry is free of cost. COVID-19 measures are well taken care of and to enter you have to pass through Like airport security check. The museum gives you information about Europe before world war, The details of the World War I and II, In the life after world war. You need approximate 2 to 3 hours inside the museum. The Liverpool park outside the museum is also amazing and really nice to spend time.
