Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art, Brussels

(2.4/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • Curious and interesting place to visit. It contains the history of the comic with a special for GERD, father of Tintin part.

  • A very nice Museum worth visiting. A very space developed on the Smurfs and Tintin with a place just sublime. Finally, we spent more time in the shop to read the old comics of ball and bill or spirou, but it's worth when only we love or loved comics!

  • very well thought out, designed rather for adults, but the reading room is there to accommodate the kids tired of the visit. I so loved, and children are not bored... There was more that day a small treasure hunt to do during the visit, which they loved. This museum is located in old department stores, beautiful architecture, skylights and large stairs. To do. Hergé, the Smurfs, the blue coats...
