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.

  • Visit free every first Sunday of the month, and commented in this April 2! We were guided for 2 hours by Dunn in person: very comprehensive, very educational! Beautiful moment, to advise!

  • Quite complete, the history of not only Tintin Hergé, although if that is the main product. They use different types of museography, as devices for listening, audio files, mechanisms of photography, original sketches, models and related objects, and even a simulator to take pictures with different backgrounds, original books and some small game. Very entertaining, and to see it with calm are needed at least one pair or 3 hours. If you're a fan of Tintin or Hergé you must go, it is a must-see. They have audio (ipod) guide which comes with the same entry with enough languages and a quiz to do during the tour. Shop and restaurant available although I did not use any of the two. Only failed a couple of numbers on the audio and video during the tour that did not work.

  • 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!
