Specialty Museum
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.

  • Visit this museum on the comic. It's nice to see the comics of his childhood. See the boards and the first sketches of designers and a real pleasure.

  • Well done courses, interesting boards for lovers. Essential parts Smurfs and Tintin, I wish other parts on the very well known comic book. So to do if you are fan of comics of all kinds but not necessarily back on the comic book classic and traditional. Entry family at €30 for 2 adults and 2 "children" under 26 years old.
