Herge Museum, Louvain-la-Neuve

4.2
#1 of 8 in Museums in Walloon Brabant Province
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.

    Good luck finding and you park! No indication and no parking nearby. Otherwise, the Museum is well documented and Tintin fans will find their account.

    An overview of the life and work of Hergé. The birth of Tintin and the evolution of Tintin in over the years. All this documented on the basis of original designs and drawings. The building itself is worth the effort. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything is easy to follow on the i-pod that you can use as a visitor. Too bad it is so difficult to find a parking spot.

    Nice museum. Plan on two hours here - that's how long the (free) audio tour is if you listen to everything.
