  • After some difficulty in finding Museum (city under construction) we are in front of a building to the really modern construction. The Interior is spacious, Hergé documents are very comprehensive. Do not hesitate to take the audio guide is complementary to the directions on the windows. And at the end of the visit the souvenir photo!

  • This is a great museum! The admission fee includes an audioguide with an English language option. Lots of interesting information on Herge's life and how his work evolved throughout his life. Give you...  more »
  • The museum provides an interesting story about how Herge worked and how he was inspired when creating his comics. Tintin is obviously the centre of attention.

  • 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!
