House of European History 

The European Parliament is building a House of European History in Brussels, which will give visitors an opportunity to learn about European history and reflect on its meaning for the present day.


The permanent exhibition will focus on 20th century European history and the history of European integration, viewed from a broad historical perspective and bringing together contrasting experiences of Europeans in history.


The House of European History will be located in the Eastman building, which has been undergoing renovation since late 2012. The opening of the House of European History is planned for May 2017.


Developing the project costs approximately €52,4 million. This covers the conversion, extension and renovation of the Eastman building as well as the development of the permanent exhibition and first temporary exhibition.
