SELF-GUIDED VISITS

Students learn best when they find something out for themselves. The learning team of the House of European History developed three 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. Click here to download! 

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 These questions are at the core of this trail, which uses historical documents and objects displayed in the various milestones of EU history. Click here to download!

Interact!”: What are the people, places and products at the centre of the encounters and exchanges that shaped and continue to shape Europe? This activity kit accompanies your visit in the first temporary exhibition of the House of European History “Interactions - centuries of combat, commerce and creation”. Students discover in small groups a series of intercultural contacts that occurred through history and traces they have left in our everyday life. They share then this learning with the rest of the class. Click here to download!

“Find, Analyse & Discuss” and "Discover the EU in 12 steps" are designed for tours of the permanent exhibition of 90 minutes. "Interact!" is designed for a visit of the temporary exhibition of 45 minutes approximately.

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.
