“If you love Comics”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you love Comics, especially the Belgian/French variety then this is interesting. Lots of background information and original sketches.

“Boring.. comic not in english”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

We were pretty excited to visit the comic centre. Unfortunately it was a big let down. Not a single comic was in english. The english translations were mainly about the comic artist themselves. This place will be good for those who can read French.

“educated on the comics I read and watched as a kid-”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

ok so I thought that the Marsupilani was a new cartoon when I was a kid, and who knew that the Babapapas where European?

Know I know a lot more about comics. This visit was great. We wanted to get out of the cold wet weather and had our 12 year old niece with us so we thought comics- a great place for us all.

It was- take your time- enjoy the art and history and the building is amazing in its own right.

“Not that interesting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Visited here in December but was disappointed to find that there wasn't a single comic in English which made it a lot less interesting, and once past the entrance there isn't many models of comic book characters. I also thought it was a tad expensive.

This is probably only really good for people who can speak French and read comics all the time.

“A lot of fun, back to childhood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

This museum is a lot of fun and brings out the good memories you have on childhood and adolescence. The building by itself is beautiful, and the way things are organized is very well thought. Moreover, there are a lot of "scenarios" typical from some comic strip character's story where you can take fun pictures :)
