Herge Museum, Louvain-la-Neuve
(4.1/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful Museum, futuristic lines, located in the university town of Louvain-La-Neuve (about 1 hour by train from Brussels Midi, progressively less dale other stations). For fans of Tintin cartoon in General, but I would say is not to be missed. Nice chance to get a photo (free) "plugged" Hergé scenarios

  • 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!
