Estimated Time

The House of European History (HEH) (French: Maison de l'Histoire européenne, Dutch: Huis van de Europese geschiedenis) is a museum in Brussels, Belgium focusing on the history of Europe. The permanent exhibition begins with the myth of the goddess Europa, delving into Europe’s ancient roots and the continent’s heritage of shared traditions and achievements, before continuing through Europe’s dramatic journey towards modernity in the 19th century and the rebuilding process following World War II. The final section challenges visitors to critically assess European history, its potential and its future. By interpreting history from a European perspective, it connects and compares shared experiences and their diverse interpretations. It aims to initiate learning on transnational perspectives across Europe. The museum is an initiative by the European Parliament and opened on 6 May 2017. As a cultural institution and exhibition centre, the House of European History intends to promote the understanding of European history and European integration, through a permanent exhibition and temporary and travelling exhibitions. The museum houses a collection of objects and documents representative of European history, educational programs, cultural events and publications, as well as a wide range of online content. It is located in the Eastman Building in Leopold Park, close to the European institutions.
