I just had a few hours to spare, and went round the Comic Museum. It's fascinating. I was grateful that the museum signs were multilingual including English. Most of the Comic Art isn't in English, and while I had heard of the obvious Tintin and The Smurfs, a lot of the content was new to me, but it's a fascinating... More

This museum does very much what it says, it celebrates Belgian comic art, the most famous of which is Tintin and the Smurfs both of which have significant coverage. Other less widely know Belgian comic artists are also displayed along with a history of the comic medium and the process of drawing and creating comics, with intermediary drawings, which I... More

I wouldn't class myself as a fan of comic strips, however I found this museum very interesting. The majority of the comics are not in English, however I didn't think that this impeded my enjoyment. I spent around 2 hours here, until my interest started to wane. It made seeing the various murals around Brussels particularly interesting as I was... More

If you don't know anything about comics, the beginning of the exhibit is great.It walks you through the whole production process with all sorts of examples. Moving up to the second and third floors, ou get some nice, in depth looks at Herge, who created Tin Tin and Peyo, "father" of the Smurfs, along with looks at their creations. The... More

Very interesting for adults and children alike, although a more international appeal might interest more visitors, the understandable Belgian slant can be a big frustrating. It does need at least an hour to not only enjoy the Comic Strips but you certainly should not miss the beauty of the building its housed in. However, watch out signing posting to the... More

I loved visiting here. It was such a brilliant experience and id definitely recommend going. Its great for young couples as if you are under 26 it is cheaper. It was filled with such brilliant stuff and had interactive bits too.

Wonderful museum for comic strip lovers. You can learn so much about comic strips history and types. There are also great details about how to draw comic strips and the idea behind it. The highlight of the museum is the Tin Tin collection. It was great to see the original sketchs of the comic strip artists. We learned a lot... More
