The European Parliament’s Visitors’ Centre

The Parlamentarium is the visitors' centre of the European Parliament. Located in the Parliament's Espace Léopold complex in Brussels, it was officially inaugurated on 14 October 2011 by President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek. 

Since its opening on October 11th, 2011, the Parlamentarium in Brussels has offered a unique and dynamic experience for children and adults.  Visitors to the Parlamentarium participate in a series of interactive exhibitions on the themes of history of European Integration, the functioning of the European Parliament and the impact of decisions made by the Parliament on the daily life of citizens.

Each visitor is equipped with a personal multimedia guide (PMG) which guides him or her through the exhibition. All content in the Parlamentarium is available in the 23 EU languages and tours are also being held for children and the blind/deaf people. At each installation the PMG serves as a key and activates the visitor's chosen language displays in-depth information and short films in the visitor's desired language.

In addition to the main exhibition, the Parlamentarium offers a role-play game for school groups (age 14-18 years) that invites them to become an MEP for the day, and encourages them to demonstrate crucial ‘active citizenship’ skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, research and reflection and decision-making.
