Fascinating to see the cartoon strips and characters that people grew up with in Belgium, some I’d heard of but many I was unfamiliar with. In the category of “known” is Tin Tin, Asterix, and the Smurfs. New to me is a long-time local favourite, Billy & Bob, about a boy and his dog. This is a fascinating museum and well worth a visit. Sections of the museum focus on newspaper cartoon strips, comics, and graphic novels. Collectables from many of the comics are also on display on three floors. Fun for all ages.

Cool place, very well laid out and informative. Great book shop to buy old favourites. This place is well worth a visit in Brussels. There is a bistro cafe next door, bit touristy, but convenient if you just want to sit and have a quick coffee.

This was one of my favorite experiences in Brussels where comic books are art and culture. I came away with a greater appreciation of the art form and its history. Come and admire the artistry. And set in a gorgeous old iron and glass fantasy.

I took my children (ages 7 and 5) to the Comic Strip Museum expecting to see family-friendly exhibits about Tintin, Asterix and Obelix. Unfortunately, the Asterix and Obelix exhibition was closed for cleaning. The only sign on Tintin was a sculpture at the entrance, most likely because there is a dedicated Herge museum about 30-45 minutes outside of Brussels. My children were bored by the proofs (original drawings and watercolours), in all likelihood because they are unfamiliar with the lesser lights of the Belgian cartoon scene, many of whom are happen to be extraordinarily talented. The captions are in Flemish, French and English, but not in other major European languages such as German, Spanish, Italian or Russian. Another misstep on the part of the curators is that the glass cases enclosing the drawings are too high for a 5-6 year child to see them without being lifted by a parent. There is also too little interaction, too few videos to keep a small child's interest. My children spent about 1.5 hours in the shop, which has an encyclopaedic collection of comics for sale. The ticket cost was €13.50 but we parted with another €35 for three books. Again, almost all books in the shop are in French. One would think that a major tourist draw such as this, in the heart of Brussels, would also sell books in other languages.
