In 1980, some architects and comic writers got together to restore this 1905 Art Nouveau building and turn it into a museum honoring Belgium’s comic strip history. If you’ve read Tintin, then you should know why this is one of Belgiums’ most important legacies. The main exhibition is on the 2nd floor of the museum, which explores the history of comics in Belgium between 1929 and 1958, with one room dedicated to each artist’s work. Also check out the auditorium, the room of original work, the animation room, the restaurant, the library and the comic book store. For anyone at who was ever into comics, this place is gold.

  • The museum is hosted in a beautiful Art Nouveau building. The permanent exhibition shows a history of Comics, mainly focused on Europe, and gives elementary information on how comics are built. The museum is enjoyable by a vast public. Everything is explained in English, but it is useful to know some French in order to enjoy the comic strips shown in the panels. The museum includes a library with comic books in different languages which is freely accessible by the visitors.

  • In spring 2009, I went to visit this museum with my father on the first day of our trip to Belgium and it has a great exhibition of famous comic strips from that country including Tintin and the Smurfs. Tintin, Smurfs and Asterix are my favourite European comic strips. I remember I bought myself a 'King Smurf' money box from this museum. Greetings from Dublin, Ireland

  • Fantastic museum with lots of mini expos of artists and the history of the comic. Really open and beautiful building, lots of types of artistry and the development of comics alongside a wonderful little shop and library to tempt you into reading in a cosy corner

  • Entertaining museum if you are interested in comic books and what to learn more about their history and their creators, specially with characters such as Tin Tin and The Smurfs. Great selection of comics at the souvenir store.

  • Excellent and comprehensive Belgian comics museum. A bit pricy but for fabs it is priceless :)
