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.

  • The Belgian centre of comics seems more suited to neophytes wishing to have basic information. Too much out for my taste. True fans will be inevitably disappointed because very few originals are presented. Better to visit the specialty shops in the old comics where you can discover rare original parts. Some addresses: bookstores Durango, Little Nemo, boutique escape and especially the inevitable peels mixes Lemonnier Street where employees will share their passion

  • Yes, so must we go to Brussels but finally if the content is interesting, I was more affected by the container! Superb modern art building beautifully restored.
