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. Put Herge Museum into our Louvain-la-Neuve journey planning app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Louvain-la-Neuve.

  • If you are a Tintin / Hergé friend, you must go there. There is no excuse. We were with a car and before joining some friends in Brussels we stopped in Louvain-la-Neuve. As the name suggests, it is...

  • Interesting and beautiful place, however you can start to feel how outdated Tintin is. Try to enjoy the free visits on some week-ends, my passion for Tintin is just too weak to pay for such a visit.

  • This museum was filled with more information I could have expected to know about Tin Tin and his creator Hergé. From his early career to his later years, you will find a deep amount of information in this museum for anyone interested. You will also surely come to learn many facts that you never knew before. Very much recommended.
  • Really great! The building itself is really awesome, both out and inside, and the collection is fantastic! A true MUST when visiting Belgium.
  • Love Tintin, so this purpose built shrine to him and his creator was a must visit. Wasn't straightforward to find from central Brussels, but so worth the effort.
  • Magnificent layout, lovely staff great service. A fitting memorial to one of Belgium's greatest sons and fond memories for me forever of my favourite character. Thanks Wavre.
  • This is a fantastic museum that captures the spirit and work of Herge perfectly. We found it very easy to spend 90 minutes viewing the exhibition which is well laid out and all with clear labels and explanations of what you are seeing. The audio guide (included in the price of admission) provides background information relevant to the room you are in. Our son is 10 years old and really enjoyed the time here, I would think that younger children will enjoy looking at the pictures as well. There is a gift shop and cafe on site but no parking. For that you need to park in the cinema car park which is a 5 minute walk away.
