One of my favorite small museums in the world, I had visited six year ago and was very impressed this time by the way the museum had kept itself up-to-date, the improvements and additions. As an American, I do feel like they gave short shrift to modern contributions from our side of the Atlantic, but the displays discussing the history,... More

We visited this attraction today 21st March 2015 and it was enjoyable. We spent just under an hour walking round looking at the examples of work. Good insight into the comic strip process but it was over priced at €10 per adult! Would recommend but no need to return as despite being interesting one visit was enough.

This centre was an easy walk from the city centre. The explanations and informative pieces were written in several languages and the comic strips I would argue did not need translation. It was great to see the process by which comic book artists make their creations and see beautiful finished products. Although I never grew up with tin tin I... More

Like many people who are getting on a bit, I have fond recollections of reading Tintin books when I was younger. I thought visiting this museum might be a pleasant exercise in nostalgia. It's not really a museum - there are no historic artefacts relating to the production of comic strips. Rather there are a sequence of information boards, leaving... More

A fantastic visit. Highly recommended. A lot of childhood memories were brought back by this visit. While this is a paid attraction, it of high quality, very nicely laid out and offers a bit for everyone. The building is also very interesting architecture.

This fantastic and fun museum takes you from the beginning of the comic strip (cavemen and Monks and stained glass) to the present day using exhibits that are mesmerizing. Leave enough time to take in the progression and to read the signs and admire the art work.

If you did not grow up having read or watched the likes of Tin Tin, the Smurfs, Lucky Luke, or Spirou, then you might not find it interesting. But it is still fascinating to see the different types of comics that can be produced, with different styles, genres, etc. Even if you are not a fan, coming here is a... More

This nice and very fun museum is located in a piece of architectural history. So I not only enjoyed the collection of the museum, but also the building. The museum collection is great for kids and their parents who want to visit the source of the comic hero's of their youth. For architectural visitors, this is one of the few... More

The building is beautiful, the entrante is great and you want to see more of It. .. but: except the exhibition of the history of comics which is great even if its à succession of documents to read, the restaurant of the place is boring, the place is almost empty and not interactive at all! I really dont understand why... More
