Belgian Comic Strip Center - Review
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.

Belgian Comic Strip Center, Brussels Reviews
Fun to see, both the exhibition and the building itself (they have something of its history too). A bit on the small side, or perhaps it was because a lot of the more well-known comics were absent while some smaller ones filled up the place. But still worth the time, at least with the 10€ entry fee.
If you are not into comics you probably better don't visit this place. I read comics a lot when i was young and hoped to get a bit of a nostalgia-trip but the overall presentation is to poor to really impress. And somehow it's not like you learn a lot about the medium either. Or maybe i just got to old :)
The magnitude of comic strips was impressive however being unable to read any other language but English made this experience significantly less interesting and involving as we could only use the pictures to understand each comic strip. There needs to be many more comic strips in English for this to be a visit I would recommend or revisit.
If you are a fan of Luckly Luck, Smurf, this place should not be missed in your list while you are in Belgium. The ticket to visit whole museum is 10 euro. After exploring a museum, you can buy some gifts in Ground floor. This is one of the most interesting place to visit.
Fantastic place! Friendly staff. It's a grand old building and the displays are brilliant. A nice range of comic history is covered, while also giving time to modern works. There was so much to take in. There was a special display of chinese comic history when I visited earlier in the year. Thankfully the displays are multi-language, and included English translations of the information. I felt like I got my moneys worth and really took my time to enjoy everything that was on display. There's a big gift shop if you're looking for souveniers.
