Students learn best when they find something out for themselves. The learning team of the House of European History developed two different activity kits based on a questioning approach. They pose questions that allow students to explore the stories and content of the museum in-depth.

Our activity sheets are designed for students from 12 to 18 years and are available in French, Dutch, English or German. They are available free of charge at the entrance of the Museum. It is important to mention the number of copies and the language you need when you make your reservation.

Find, Analyse & Discuss”: this activity kit for the permanent exhibition actively encourage students to search, interrogate, and analyse history in an independent manner and in small groups.  Accompanying guidance notes for teachers are available on our interactive tablet to be used in conjunction with the worksheets. 

Learn about the EU in 12 steps”: Why do we need to learn about the European Union (EU)? For the students’ generation, what does the EU stand for? How would they like the EU to continue developing to be a better place? These questions are at the core of this trail, which uses historical documents and objects displayed in the various milestones of EU history.

“Find, Analyse & Discuss” and "Discover the EU in 12 steps" are designed for tours of the permanent exhibition of 90 minutes.

Self-guided visits of the House of European History may also be done individually; each student will get a tablet to discover, in one of the 24 languages, the content of the Museum.

We ask that you book in advance to make sure you get the most out of your trip. The minimum time to book in advance is four weeks for a guided visit.

For further advice on making the most of your visit, please read the document "Practical information for groups".

Self-guided groups at the HEH may have no more than thirty students, depending on availability, with one chaperone required for every fifteen students.
