#1 of 7 in Things to do in Louvain-la-Neuve
A must-see for any Tintin fan, Herge Museum is devoted to the cartoon's artist and creator Georges Remi, penname Herge. While the museum showcases several of his works, it largely focuses on Tintin. Through the nine exhibits learn about Herge's life, inspirations, creations, and characters. The building has been designed with contemporary architecture, as per Remi's interest in modern art. There is also a mini cinema and a cafe/restaurant attached. Don't worry if you aren't staying in the area; the local train station is walking distance.

  • The museum is interesting and good for children to visit. Kids who love Tintin but also adults will love it and guide is for free, but... what a terrible staff at the restaurant of the museum and the ...  more »
  • Wow... What to say... What wonderful Museum! Filled with more interesting documentation as the other, a more than reasonable rate (9.50 / people) and more we lend you an audio-guide for free! A calm and soothing place or we learn more on Hergé and Tintin... The restaurant the little twentieth is excellent value for money, we took pasta 4 cheese and the burger of the little twentieth (which by the way is the best burger I've eaten in a restaurant!) Exceptional setting in the lovely restaurant and server/ese. The only negative point of this visit is hospitality in the tintin souvenir shop; everything worth Hello and when we spend cash with "only" a postcard to 1.25e asked if "that's all?!"...

  • It was always a goal to be able to visit the Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve. As Tintin fan I had always wanted to visit this place. The Museum that honors the life of the creator of the reporter most famous in the world is located one hour from the Centre of Brussels by train. The establishment is located 5 minutes from the train station of this small town. The Museum is a modern building with a giant poster of Tintin which faces a small park. The cost of entry is correct given that it is a theme Museum. Along with the entrance give you an audio guide that you can configure in the language of your choice, also most of the things are in English, French and Dutch. The travel time depends on each one, I have taken a good two hours and quarter. The Museum has a format biographical starting from the beginnings in the world of drawing by Hergé until his death. There is much material inedito, lots of interesting information and many objects and drawings that are a relic. The Museum has a shop, with some products more expensive than others, and a high-end restaurant. The truth is that met my expectations and would recommend to any fan of Tintin who visit this place once in life.

  • The museum is very nice but I had a very bad experience in the shop with the guy who was there. There was a game displayed in the shop with a price and when I went to pay, he said the price was different. I pointed out at the price on display but, instead of apologizing, he started to behave in a very rude manner. I would not mind to pay more for the item, but I do not accept such a behaviour if I am a client in a shop. Persons like that should not work in sales. He definitely had no manners. I will write a formal complain to the museum.
  • Good experience for Tintin Fans. Details on Hergé's life and experiences which led to the creation of Tintin and his other characters/comics. Comes with an audio tour in multiple languages. Mostly everything on display is in French, the original language in which Tintin was written. Highly recommend the Tintin shop which doesn't need a ticket. There is another Tintin store near the Grand Place which has almost the same products and more at the same price. Reaching the museum might be a task as it's away from the centre and everything else of importance.
  • Very interesting and entertaining museum. You get an audio guide while you walk through the numerous drawings and pictures of Hergé. Good for young and old.
  • Beautifully building in a park setting. Interesting exhibits behind glass. Lots to see but not much to do. Our girls (9 and 12 years) who love Tintin, were bored.
  • The museum is well done. Lots of good info for the Tintin fans, and a good gift shop. Well worth a visit to Louvain-la-Neuve.
