Not only their beer, lace and chocolate make us shout hooray,but its their comics which resonate with a wry and artistic-yet-unpretentious sensibilities. Tick them off....Smurfs, Tin Tin pronounced (tan-tan) and Lucky Luke.....all here in glorious colour. If art be your oxygen, then what you encounter here is humorous probing, beautiful mediums,with displays in French Dutch and sometimes English. A lot... More

I came to this city with little knowledge of the comic history. I left the centere with more knowledge and appreciation. Our 12 year old son was in some type of heaven. Our 14 year old daughter also found the war themes really interesting. The art neanvou building is worth the entrance alone. It is a very unique experience. Bathrooms... More

I quite liked this museum - I grew up with Tintin and had already been to the Herge museum, so I wanted to give this one a shot. Not all of the exhibits are in Engish, but there is some really interesting info about the drawing/comic creating process. The Tintin section was very vibrant and I loved it, although the... More

Was very cool seeing the history of comic work on the Tin Tin and Astrix that I grew up with. Not everything has an English translation, which was a challenge but comics cross all language barriers. Love the library at the basement. I had a couple of hours to burn as I was waiting for my train to Paris, so... More

My husband is a huge comic book fan so this was a must-see in Brussels. I went along for the ride and ended up having a decent time. There's a wing dedicated to how comic strips are made which is interesting. The section about Tin Tin was fun. The Smurfs section was small but made me smile. If you're not... More

I'm not particularly a Tintin fan... or even a European comics fan. But I do like drawing and found this place fascinating. I loved the presentation of how to draw using both the computer-based kind and the old-times paintbrush kind. A friend is a ...'Smurf-oholic?' and she enjoyed the museum also. Still, would have been much nicer if all of... More

I grew up reading Tintin, so enjoyed this museum. The museum is set over 3 levels, and contains a lot of Belgian comics I'm not familiar with. It was interesting to see the different comic strips. So if you're a Tintin fan and / or interested in comic strip history, check it out. Otherwise, it might not be to your... More
