I had no idea that so much of comic history come from Belgium, and this is a great reflection of that history. A drinks and serious nibbles reception where we could wander through the exhibits. Perhaps not somewhere I would have chosen to come but it was hugely enjoyable.

This is a real refreshing museum in comparison with others (not belle arts, birthplaces, technical, nature etc.) and we really enjoyed it. There we could see a lot of comics strip art from several years ago. Recommended.

We were like 100+ persons that invaded the upper floor of the museum. In the well known comics environment we had a high class buffet served. With vegetables, sallads, fish, boeuf tartare, lovely desserts and good wine and beers. Very nice place for such an "event". And the food was very good.

Had no idea how much of an impact Belgium had on comic history. Loved the Peyo exhibit and learning the history of characters I never realized were connected to certain artists.

Very nice combination of comic art and architecture. Also the exhibition is nicely organized and both entertaining and educational.

I went here as a concession to my friend and travelling companion who wanted to go, and because Tintin is perhaps the second most famous Belgian to Hercule Poirot (and at least one of those two is fictional), and lastly because the building - an art nouveau department store - sounded interesting. I thought the museum was so-so, but since... More

Had a really good history of Belgium comics, would be good if there were english subtitles as well. But maybe it is because it is small but I felt the museum could be bigger, but nonetheless the museum is good in its present form

How difficult is it to make a gallery/museum /attraction out of COMIC BOOKS?! IT TAKES MAJOR SKILLS to ruin an otherwise fun topic into total boredom. Not only is the "Centre of Comic Strip Art" outrageously expensive, but also, it can be summarized into 10 seconds of things worth seeing. Aside from literally 5 pages of comic book drafts and...

It was our last day and my husband selected this museum. Great I thought--and I wanted more art nouveau anyway, so visiting a Victor Horta building was right up my alley. We walked curiously up the rue des Sables--from the bottom, near the intersection with Marais, the building is not visible, so we were quite started when we got close... More
