Parliamentarium - Review
It's not often you get to see the seat of the governing body of an entire continent. At the visitor center you can get multimedia guides. These will take you through the immersive tour of the Parliament. The exhibits mostly focus on the impact of European integrations and it's role in the world today. The highlight of the visit is the 360 degree cinema. You also get to virtually explore the nations of the EU and a huge 3D map of Europe. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Brussels itinerary 2 days.

Parliamentarium, Brussels Reviews
Really nice experience, it takes you through a history timeline highlighting all major events in Europe that made possible the long peace time we are now enjoying and the formation of the Union. You can also explore different cities in the Union that have had an important role or that are benefiting from European projects. Finally you can learn more about how the European parliament works, how people is represented and how decisions are made. Also families friendly, with special explanations and exercises/games for kids. Very inspiring and highly recommended!
What an amazing place! And free! It gives a lot of detail on the history of the EU as well as personal accounts from each member state about something they are involved in that involves the EU. There are audio, visual and interactive parts. It also explains the parliament and how it works. Really fascinating and excellent presentation.
This place is amazing. Incredibly well organised museum, accessible in all EU languages and will surely make you understand better how "Europe works". A visit to this museum should, in a certain way be mandatory to any EU citizen. In the tours I do to friends to Brussels, the second day either includes this museum or the museum of EU history
Very nice tour explaining the history reasons and nowadays EU parliament. Not very toddler friendly. 3 squares away from the metro. Not much to eat around.
Go here to learn about the effort to keep Peace and Prosperity in Europe. With free entry and multilingual displays and audio guides a visit should be included in any Brussels tour (it is a 5 mins walk from Maelbeek Metro). I have done the tour a few times and it takes 1.5-2 hours (longer if you watch every video etc), but don't take very young kids -- the tour is best for teens who know a bit of European history (WW2 etc). Small cafeteria is OK for snacks and a coffee but local neighbourhood cafes offer greater variety.
