The exhibition is a lot less interesting than I thought it would be. Not everything is covered in English but you do get a folder with information in it to assist you. There is a great shop and a cafe that we didn't eat in as we felt it looked a bit pricey. I'd say this is a visit only for comic book connoisseurs, not mere dabblers.

The wonderful building is an asset on its own. When you enter the old storehouse, you are impressed by the magnificent art nouveau structure, which provides plenty of light to the museum. The collection itself gives a nice overview of Belgian comics in an entertaining way, even not taking into account the temporary collections.
For the real fans, the museum also has a massive collection of old Belgian comics in the study library.

I went to this museum with my sister, who has always been a big fan of comics. I did not anticipate enjoying it but hoped that she would. We were disappointed to find that almost all of the comics and the accompanying descriptions were in French and Dutch, with a few exceptions. Nonetheless, it was more interesting than I expected. It took a lot of time to make your way through several floors of exhibits. The highlight of the museum for me was the fabulous building itself, which was formerly a warehouse designed by Victor Horta. There was an exhibit concerning the building, which we found particularly interesting because we had already visited the Horta home and office museum. The price for the comic museum was 6 Euros for seniors and 8 Euros for others. I don't recommend it unless you have a special interest in comics.

The place is good if you are really interested in all sorts of Belgian comics, and their history. But surely not a place if you are interested mainly in Tintin. With only a small section dedicated to the most famous belgian comic star , tintin and other creations of Herge. For a overview of all other Belgian comic history (which belgium really excells in) it is a must watch though.

This museum displays a great collection of the huge Belgian comic culture - who would have thought that such a small country brought to us so many of our most beloved comic characters!

The exhibition is based on 3 floors, assorted by artist. It takes more than 2 hours to really see and read everything so be sure to not rush through it.
