  • Beautiful architectural space, showcasing the work of Hergé. Many original drawings, photographs, interviews are presented, as well as all objects cults of the Tintin universe, the submarine of the "treasure of Rack the Red", the scepter of Ottokar, statuette Arumbaya, etc...

  • Very nice museum dedicated to the works of Hergé. Of course, the beautiful part is dedicated to Tintin, but other parts of his work are also presented. A lot of original plates of sketches of Blues,... very interesting to be able to judge the work of Hergé. Negatives: little interactivity and the "dark years" of Hergé are not mentioned at all, even if this issue remains somewhat taboo in Belgium, a small clarification would be welcome.

  • Nice museum. Plan on two hours here - that's how long the (free) audio tour is if you listen to everything.
  • Very nice 2 hours tour. Main attraction beeing the shop... A bit too expensive.
  • A must for all Tintin fans. The audio guide is completely necessary.
  • Either Tintin lover or not, this museum is amazing. Not just about Tintin but also other Herge work. In this museum you will understand that Tintin is not just comics but also Herge politics opinion. That's why is named as Herge museum because finally it's about Herge himself.
  • If you are a Tintin fan, you'll love this!
