Immerse yourself in this interactive experience, where we bring the iconic European Coal and Steel Community Pavilion from 1958 Brussels World's 'Expo' Fair to life in stunning 3D.

Expo 58, the international fair held on the Heysel/Heizel Plateau in Brussels from 17 April to 19 October 1958, welcomed almost 42 million visitors. Six million visited the pavilion of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). Many more people can visit it now, 65 years after Expo 58 closed its doors to the public.

A virtual pavilion can be experienced through virtual reality technology at the Jean Monnet House (JMH) and online through the JMH and House of European History websites. The virtual tour is currently available in English, French and German.
