On Monday 15 June, several of the European Parliament’s visitor facilities will reopen to the public with the necessary measures in place to guarantee a safe visit.

In Brussels, visits to the Parlamentarium and the House of European History will now be possible, respecting all distancing and hygiene measures.

Parlamentarium

 

In the Parlamentarium, the European Parliament’s visitor’s centre, multimedia guides lead visitors to the heart of the European Parliament, explaining the path towards European cooperation, how the European Parliament works and what its Members are doing to meet current challenges. It can be experienced in any of the European Union’s 24 official languages. Visits are self-directed, with the visit taking up to 60 minutes. Visitors are kindly asked to pre-book a slot for their visit. Due to the hygiene measures in place, some sections will be temporarily closed. The temporary exhibition “Behind the Berlin Wall – State Security in the GDR Dictatorship”, inaugurated last November to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, will be open.

House of European History

 

At the House of European History, visitors can explore the permanent exhibition, which includes a look at the history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and how European integration developed. They will discover the origins and evolution of Europe, encountering both the continent’s diversity and the many historical interpretations of its story. The museum’s trans-European viewpoint delves into historical memories, diverse experiences and common ground shared by the peoples of Europe, exploring how these relate to the present day.

 

As of 15 June, a new display of objects from Belgium and across Europe will be presented in the Fables Room of the museum, entitled “Documenting Covid”, revealing a snapshot of citizens’ lives during the recent COVID-19 lockdown. The curated selection shows the deep social, economic and cultural impact of the pandemic, as well as exploring common themes of solidarity, hope and resilience experienced in adversity.

 

Visits are allowed for individual visitors or small groups from the same household. Booking in advance is mandatory.

 

In addition to the Parlamentarium and the House of European History, other visitors facilities have also reopened, including Station Europe on Place Luxembourg in Brussels, where visitors can get information on the Parliament and the visitors offer.
