The House of European History takes visitors on a journey along the path of Europe’s history and challenges them to contemplate its future.

The House of European History is located in the beautifully renovated Eastman Building in leafy Park Leopold.
Its exhibits are available in all 24 official European Union languages.

To give visitors a better understanding of the tumultuous events of the 20th century, the permanent exhibition focuses firstly on the convictions and beliefs that defined the 19th century – Europe’s ‘entry into modernity’ – before moving on to consider Europe’s descent into war and destruction.
This is followed by the search for a better life in an increasingly united Europe.

Visitors are also encouraged to think about the Europe of today, the status and position of the European Union, and the part that everyone can play in shaping Europe's future.
