The House of European History is a museum for everyone, be they from Brussels or Budapest, Ghent or Gdańsk. Reaching out to people and communities both near and far is a vital aspect of the museum’s activities. We do this through specific projects and online link-ups with events and partner institutions across Europe and focused outreach work with diverse groups in our immediate neighbourhood and region.

The European Democracy Sites.

To enhance its international outreach, the House of European History established a new award scheme, the European Democracy Sites. 
This symbolic distinction, which will be awarded on an annual basis to at least one historical site per member state of the European Union, will strongly support the museum’s primary mandate of providing pan-European democracy education. The selected sites will be of great value for audience engagement through educational programming, as well as for exchange of resources and expertise. It will be combined with other activities around democracy education carried out by the House of European History.
