It's a simple question. If you have an ingrained fondness or merely just an idle curiosity towards comics and the artistry that surrounds them then this museum will have something for you. Guaranteed. It's interesting, spaciously laid out with a wealth of miscellaneous comics creation this and thattery. And even if the words don't engage you the abundance of images... More

I had so much fun at this Museum. The first floor of the museum allows you to read and understand all that goes into the "9th Art". It does a great job of showing you examples and explaining the process. I learned a lot. The next floor allowed you to read through a book and see the whole story put... More

Belgium is one of the centres of comics excellence and this museum is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in comics. There's thousands of pages of art to drool over and inventive galleries and displays that use props and scenes to make it much more than a gallery. That 99% of these comics have never been translated... More

Excellent museum really does give a good history of the "9th art"! Explains all the diffrrent genres. Quite a few bits on the Smurfs which was really great! Also lots about a comic called Thalor? (Not sure on spelling) which i wasnt familiar with. All in all definitely worth a visit.

Loads of history great, but not much fun. The museum was also boiling hot, no fans no ac simply making it a torture tour more than... More

This place was great and for €10 you cant go wrong!! Each stage of Comic strip is explained (english included) where it originated, different styles, different illustrators, and the production process. Was amazing to see the different stages and the fantastic artwork. My only dissapointment was that the majority of the comics were in French so I couldn't read them,... More

You seldom find any thematic museum on comics. This centre has an incredible library on comics. Their permanent and thematic exhibitions are both good. If you happen to be a fan of Tintin and Smurf, you must come.

Interesting museum and a must for comic lovers. There are Tintin, Smurf and others exhibitions. I enjoyed it. Unfortunately the museum was quite small, I hope they will extend it someday. Prices in the souvenir shop are expensive

Pleasantly surprised by this spur of the moment trip. There are some great displays and models, and some very nice pieces of art. I even got to see a statue of a ghibli character there!
