This document is an overview of the work undertaken and progress made, since early 2011, on the project to create a House of European History. It sets out in some detail a description of aspects of the evolution of the project, including the architectural developments, progress on the interpretive process and the visitor experience, and the development of the contents and the narrative of the permanent exhibition. At the same time, it offers insight into aspects of the process of building the House of European History such as the exhibition design, educational and outreach programming and the... future collection policy. It sets out the rationale of key areas of its activities, such as museological and historical research, so that the genesis of the project to its current status can be understood. It also maps out in clear terms the future vision of the House, as of its scheduled opening in late 2015.
