For every Tintin fan this is the place they should visit at least once, the GPS showed a direction which did not have the parking but we got there. There is nothing to add in terms of anything, I would suggest that the staff be...More

Easy to get to from Brussels, via train. It is a quiet student town. Not very crowded. Nice place for seeing Herge's life and works.

For Hergé/Tintín fans. It indeed was an unforgettable experience. The premises are astounding and provide an impressive frame to the enormous quantity of objects, drawings and memorabilia related with the author. The shop could have more assortment and unusual items for sale. First Sunday of...More

This is a must visit attraction for Herge fans. It is a bit of a faff to get to from central Brussels but is well worth it - about 50 minutes - with one change at Ottignes. The museum covers Herge's childhood, life, inspirations and...More

I went here with my parents on a rainy Sunday in December. On Sundays you don't pay an entrance fee, so that is very nice. I therefore expected it to be busy, but it wasn't really. It wasn't deserted either, but definitely not crowded. I...More

Tintin is undoubtedly the most famous Belgian in the world. In Louvain-la-Neuve, a student town less than one hour by train from Brussels, there is a Tintin Museum (called "Hergé Museum"). It's only a seven or eight-minute walk from the train station. It isn't the...More
