You must know and love your comic strips for this one or it is a complete waste of time. It is all in Dutch and unless you can read and understand some Dutch you will not get that much out of a visit.

Nice museum, soon to be relocated to Groninger Forum, about Dutch "strips" - in good English: cartoonists. Nice for adults as well as kids, conveniently located above a MacDonalds ;-) Also sell cartoons in the store.

It is interesting to go to this museum!! Really nice... but most of it is in Dutch so .... most can not be understood by common tourits.. its good to look around and see that some comics have history in the netherlands such as donald duck and asterix and obelix

Even as a Dutch speaking person I thought it was not really interesting. Indeed most of the collection are Dutch comics. You see a display of "Kuifje"-albums (Tintin), furthermore you see a display of "Suske and Wiske"-albums, so what? There is no point, only a few rare albums. Some rather nice goodies. I liked the shop the best. There is... More

I did enjoy this museum, even though I'm not the world's biggest fan of comic strips. It had a nice variety of items on display covering most of the more popular comic strips, specifically, Dutch comics. There were small sections on other popular European and American comics, and an extremely small section on Japanese comics and, on the top floor,... More

Over all not worth the money, the fee compared to the amount we spent in Hamburg to see the Model railway was very expensive. Not a lot to do or see. Not a lot of international comics. the gift shop was pricey too. Could do better.

The entrance fee is fairly low and the museum is pretty good value for money. Particularly liked the engine room part.

All the great dutch comics combined in one big space? Count me in! I loved it, there is also a big part dedicated to nickelodeon so the youngsters will see their heroes while the parents look for the golden oldies in the comic world.

Small museum about comics and comic books. Price-value wise maybe a little expensive and there is not a lot to do for kids, besides drawing their own comic. The expositions are nice for the parents, because it's about comics that they read in their childhood, but children don't know these comics so it's not really their cup of tea.
