Abstract: A renewed effort is being dedicated to infer magnetic fields in prominences through spectropolarimetry of emission lines like the He D3 and 10830 Å lines. We will briefly review those present observational efforts pointing at how do they improve or disregard past attempts to measure magnetic fields in prominences and at how they try to answer some of the standing questions from theoretical models. A brief and gentle introduction to the Hanle effect and other subtle quantum phenomena is given, as they are key to present diagnostic techniques and, finally, an overview of future observational goals and wishes is presented.
