what a beautiful building

housed in a former department store, the building itself is stunning deco. Fun easy going exhibition from war time to more contemporary fantasy characters.

Have you ever kissed a smurf? Have you made a selfie taking Lucky Luke by the arm? Have you ever thought in touching Tintin's rocket? All these dreams will come true here. All the characters, settings and reproductions flow along, upstairs and downstairs a curious building. You'll find yourself telling and pointing: Look here, look there with no possibility to...

If you are a comics fan, you must spare time for this place when you are in Brussels. I would not recommend the place for non-enthusiast as it may be very boring for them. Do not forget to stop by their souvenir shop and take a look at their comic book collection; they have a good one.

We actually went to the MOOF first and enjoyed that more! This museum was quite hard to find, we got lost when looking!! Still loved the smurf and Tin tin stuff and the shop... just think the MOOF was a bit more exciting.

Brussels is well-know to be the home of comics (such as Tin Tin and Smurfs) judging by the many fun comic strip walls you can randomly chance upon whilst walking through the city centre, as such, I decided to check out the museum and found it to be lots of fun. Not only did I get to learn the history... More

Not a big museum, and not for everyone. But if you like comics, specially the Belgian ones (I mean characters such as Tin Tin and The Smurfs), this is a fun place to spend a couple of hours. Nice and interesting shop on the ground floor.

The museum is not that awesome as I wondered. There are great pictures and drawnings indeed -- but I wondered more... the store, on the other hand, is amazing.

I went to the CBBD expecting to visit some kind of museum with drawings by famous cartoonists, instead I saw an exhibition on how comics are made, with examples from cartoonists I didn't know. However, there was a small exhibition about Hergé (Tintin) and Peyo (The Smurfs) but it didn't really make up for the rest.

A very nice museum fully dedicated to Belgian comic books. Perfect mix between educational (regarding the process of making comings) and nostalgia for someone like me, growing up with a lot of these characters. The exhibitions are very nicely made and will appeal to people who are not big fans of comic books. A visit requires about 1,5 to 2... More

I really wasn't that keen to visit the Comic Museum in Brussels, it was more for my husband and his love of comic books, but I loved the building. The Art Nouveau building was designed by Victor Horta in 1906 originally as a textiles warehouse, fortunately the building has retained and displays fine examples of Art Nouveau elements.
