Herge Museum, Louvain-la-Neuve

4.3
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Louvain-la-Neuve
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.

  • Definitely for the amateurs of comics like Tintin and Quick and Flupke. Nice review of the career of Hergé or Remy Georges with much original material. The included audio is top.

  • I went here with my parents on a rainy Sunday in December. On Sundays you don't pay an entrance fee, so that is very nice. I therefore expected it to be busy, but it wasn't really. It wasn't deserted ...  more »

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to. Probably not as interesting if you aren't an Hergé fan but still quite good value. Good balance of interactive stuff, films and books, and you get an audioguide included which goes into more detail and has extra pictures and films on the screen, as well as mini quizzes. Good 2-3 hours spent!
  • Plenty of Tintin and plenty of background on Herge. Easy to get there from Brussels main stations with cheap weekend tickets €6.40 return.
  • Informative. The audio guide adds to the experience. If you're a Tintin fan then you really should make a trip out here. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have any Farsi books on display...but they are hard to come by (the original Farsi Tintin translations).
  • Use the audioguide! Very well managed, great ambience & lighting. Many collections.
  • Awesome for any Herge/Tintin fan. Extremely hard to find given it is attached to a university campus undergoing massive renovation. As a result, satnav directions just don't work. Both the large underground car parks nearby and the campus would benefit from clearer and more obvious signs directing the visitor to the Museum. The only let-down is the shop. It isn't selling anything you can't get in Tintin outlets in, say, London. Missing a trick here also, by not selling Tintin DVDs.
