The House of European History will contribute to spreading the European Union project and the Europe movement based on a design developed by ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño in close cooperation with the European Parliament’s House of European history Academic Project team who prepared the content or narrative. The museum combines displays of original items with leading-edge interactive audiovisual elements to recreate Europe’s recent history.

The museum project designed by APD offers visitors content translated into the 24 official languages of the European Union. Visitors are given a tablet to guide them through the museum, automatically translating the content and offering additional information via a range of audiovisuals, pictures, graphics and texts.

The most outstanding item in the museum is an aluminium and steel sculpture 25 metres tall, that is located in the atrium and rises alongside the staircase to the skylight, traversing all six floors of the building.
