House of European History will open its doors on 6 May in the Eastman Building in Brussels’ Leopold Park.
The museum is a European Union project.
Visitors will have a chance to go along of major historical events across the continent starting in the 19th century, through to the tragedies of the two world wars and a discussion of their relationship to the founding of the EU.
The permanent exhibition ends with a discussion of the EU’s future. Visitors can choose among all 24 official EU languages, and entrance to the museum will be free.
Tailored resources are available for schools and other groups.
The museum will also host temporary exhibitions, the first of which is called Interactions, which allows visitors to answer a few questions and see their connection to the rest of Europe.
