The building is really quite beautiful, from the ceiling to the flor tiles and stairs, etc. I did expect this to appeal a bit more to my children 6 and 4 but aside from the couple of figurines they saw, there was nothing to interest them. I would have thought there would be a section on the smurfs, but unless... More

I loved the Smurf store and large Smurf statue. It is a Smurf fans paradise with a good selection of items to shop for.

My son (16) spotted this museum (CBBD) and, having grown up reading Tintin and Asterix, I happily agreed to visit. Most of the displays are in French, Flemish & English and the museum provide a small binder with English notes for the display items which are only in French & Flemish. The range of illustrations on display is amazing and... More

This museum came highly recommended, and our kids (aged 11 and 8) are huge fans of TinTin, so expectations were high. However, most displays are geared more for adults than children and teens - information on how comic strips are created, virtues of inking vs computer generation,etc. My husband and I enjoyed them, but the kids lost interest relatively quickly....

Besides chocolate and beer, Belgium is noted for its comic artists. The museum demonstrates that the reputation is well-deserved and not simply built on the work of Hergé, the creator of Tin Tin. A bonus is the fact that the museum is located in another Bruxelles treasure, an old warehouse designed by Victor Horta, whose art nouveau style makes the... More

We visited the comic museum to gain a better understanding and appreciation of Belgian comic 'stars' after seeing the various wall murals and comic character souvenirs. The museum costs €8 for adults and €6 for under 18s and involves a lot of reading info birds which may not be interesting to younger children. The museum has signs in Dutch, French... More

We enjoyed the comic strip museum very much. It would have been even better if we could read each of the comics displayed. Most of them were in dutch or french. I still got a lot out of seeing the exhibits. There's a film with some cartoons to watch and thankfully that was in English as well as other languages.... More

If you love Tintin, the Smurfs and Art Nouveau a place that combines the two. Starts of a history of the comic strip followed by an explanation of the various stages in the production of a comic strip. Slightly less interesting section on comic strip gendre. A little explanation about the origins of the art nouveau building in which the... More
