Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art, Brussels
(2.3/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Walk through the history of Tintin at the Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art, which celebrates the art of the comic. The center is housed inside a former department store designed by Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, whose great glass ceiling lets in enough natural light to illuminate the museum galleries. Exhibits showcase French, English, and Dutch comic art from its earliest days to the present. An extensive Tintin exhibit is the main attraction with the history of the artwork and its creator, and even life-size models of the characters. Browse copies of some of Europe's best-known comics and graphic novels in the reading room and library. A self-guided tour is the most popular way to explore the building and the exhibits, because information about each exhibit is available in multiple languages. Use our Brussels tour planner to arrange your visit to Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art and other attractions in Brussels.

  • Museum particularly interesting for children, whatever! Strong interesting explanations are given on how to perform certain drawing we learn the importance of the choice of a comic book cover

  • The Museum is very centered on comics popular in Belgium, so don't expect to find the X-Men but you can console yourself slightly (but barely) with the Smurfs. It is not a museum too large, but for a couple of hours when it rains alright.

  • In the Museum, which is located in a beautiful building, different comic styles and the emergence of this are presented.
