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.

  • A wonderful purpose built museum for the work of Herge who spent his life elevating the work of ‘comic’ books quite an achievement. The structure is staggering and the work is so well displayed. Well worth a trip out to see it. The cinema section shows the movies that inspired his drawings from King Kong to the Marc’s brothers. Give yourself time to get around everything.
  • Had the most wonderful time here! The museum is excellent and there's a free audio guide app that was clever, informational, and easy to navigate. I spent probably 3-4 hours here but most people would probably take about an hour and a half. Great if you love Tintin, great if you love Hergé's other works too. Well designed and so interesting! You can see original inks, plates, gouache art, memorabilia, and photographs.
  • Every Tintin fan must visit this museum. The museum was beautiful and very modern. Fairly priced at 12 euro per adult. I was surprised to find so many original drawings of Herge in the exhibition. It was very interesting to learn the background of Herge and see the development of the characters and the tools used! There was not a lot of people here when we the museum opened. It was easy to find, but a bit far out of Brussels, which was where we stayed. But I think the museum was worth the train ride and the fare.
  • The museum offers a wonderful experience for any Tintin fan, and there is extensive information about Hergé's life and the historical context of his work as well. There is a multilingual audio guide app that you can download, and it really enhances your experience. I got the ticket for €7 with a student discount, and there are lockers to leave your jacket or bag as well.
  • Very well curated museum. 2 floors of Tintin nicely laid out in sections and very helpful and polite staff. Lovely little gift shop on the way out too 😊
