The House of European History is a place for you and your students. It informs, it challenges, it reflects, but most of all it allows the questioning and learning of history. A key element of our approach to learning is an exploration and assessment of the influential role that history plays in our modern world.

We have developed a range of educational resources adapted to the needs of different age-ranges and learning abilities. We have an extensive online offer so you can utilise our teaching materials in your own classroom wherever you happen to be.
