Tours of the EU in Brussels?

We will be in Brussels for 2 days in September, and I am interested in seeing some of the EU sites. The website:
www.europarl.europa.eu/visiting describes 3 things: the Parliament building, the Parliamentarium, and the house of Europe's History. I think what I am most interested in is the Parliament building, which includes the Hemicycle(?) All sites need online reservations, so I need to plan ahead, but I'm not sure we want to spend all of one day of our 2 days in Brussels, visiting all three three sites. Can anyone tell me if just visiting the Parliament building, with their audioguide, would be a good experience?

Thanks in advance!

While I’ve not personally visited any of the three sites, the EU Parliament building is located in Strasbourg, France. The Hemicycle and the Parliamentarium are in Brussels.

I visited the Hemicycle several years ago and found it to be a very worthwhile experience. I would recommend it. We spent a half day there and at the Parliamentarium.
