A friendly place to be with incredible comic art on display. Being placed in one of Horta's great buildings with this great architecture is certainly a plus. Strolling the exhibition gives you a good taste of what comic art can be about - with Belgium being at the heart of it. A cafe in the ground floor of the building... More

Got to see smurfs and Tin Tin.. but I didn't pay attention to the rest that I don't really know.. But there was an area displaying comics that include places in Brussels, good to know more about the city that way.

We visited this with two teenage children and this was a favourite with all of us. There was lots of information, very attractively presented and in a gorgeous building with a great restaursnt attached. All in all a memorable visit.

Following a visit to the Tintin museum this museum was top on our list. My husband is a big Tintin fan and although I like comic arts I am not as big a fan. I found this museum interesting but as other reviews have mentioned the majority of the actual artefacts from comics in the museum are French so gave... More

If you're an avid fan of Tintin and the Smurfs then you'll love this comic strip museum Pretty cool comic strip art displayed all over the centre Became a bit of a bore fest after 10 mins walking about Not worth the entry fee unless you're planning to stay there for a long time Great if you have the Brussels...

As you would expect, this is one for comic fans. It's not aimed towards young children. For the most part it's an exhibition of comic and cartoon art accompanied by some historical and biographical information. There's a fantastic shop with every imaginable comic, some in English. It's housed in a beautiful building by renowned architect and designer Victor Horta

This was fascinating - TinTin, smurfs as well as a well documented history of the comic strip. The building is also beautiful and a fine example of it's type. I would definitely recommend making the effort

this museum shows how the culture of cartoons and satirical comment is well established in Belgium and northern Europe. At this time in light of recent events, it reinforces the value of the cartoons. The history is well laid out, the story of TinTin is fascinating and there are some great books to buy in the shop - Ou est... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this museum, as a fan of comics. Unfortunately, it was a disappointment. The displays aren't very interesting, and to be honest there's not that much to see. The highlight for me was actually the building that the museum is housed in (designed by Victor Horta). The admission price is very high and the... More
