The House of European History is opening its doors to the public

On Saturday 6 May the House of European History is opening its doors to the public. Visit the museum – and change your perspective on European history.

This new museum, situated in Parc Léopold in the European quarter of Brussels, will offer a new and thought-provoking way of seeing and understanding the history of the continent and the development of European integration. The principal focus of the permanent exhibition is on European history of the 19th and 20th centuries, while also delving into Europe’s roots and exploring in detail the context and evolution of European integration. The main exhibition, available in 24 languages, together with the first temporary exhibition in 4 languages on the theme of ‘Interactions – centuries of commerce, combat and creation’, takes a transnational perspective on history and invites visitors to reflect critically on historical events and experiences, considering their meaning for today and for the future. A project under the auspices of the European Parliament, the House of European History aims to become, over time, a place of debate.

To learn more about the project, the learning programmes and book a visit for a group (more than 10 people), you can visit the House of European History website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter

Admission and learning programmes are free of charge.
