“Lots of comics - bring a Dutch speaker!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I did enjoy this museum, even though I'm not the world's biggest fan of comic strips. It had a nice variety of items on display covering most of the more popular comic strips, specifically, Dutch comics. There were small sections on other popular European and American comics, and an extremely small section on Japanese comics and, on the top floor, some Nikelodeon cartoons.

There are some rather strange things to discover here, like the fact that Donald Duck is very popular in the Netherlands! I also learned about Fokke & Sukke which I found entertaining. My favourite comic in the whole museum was one about a husband reluctantly appreciating his wife's bad knitting (of course, I am a knitter).

However, if you aren't a Dutch speaker, you really want to have a Dutch speaking guide with you to translate most of the information and comics, as there is very little English, and even with comics they are quite hard to follow unless you can understand what is written! I also thought that the price was a little steep.

“Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Over all not worth the money, the fee compared to the amount we spent in Hamburg to see the Model railway was very expensive. Not a lot to do or see. Not a lot of international comics.
the gift shop was pricey too. Could do better.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The entrance fee is fairly low and the museum is pretty good value for money. Particularly liked the engine room part.

“Comictastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

All the great dutch comics combined in one big space? Count me in! I loved it, there is also a big part dedicated to nickelodeon so the youngsters will see their heroes while the parents look for the golden oldies in the comic world.

“Nice and small museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Small museum about comics and comic books. Price-value wise maybe a little expensive and there is not a lot to do for kids, besides drawing their own comic. The expositions are nice for the parents, because it's about comics that they read in their childhood, but children don't know these comics so it's not really their cup of tea.
