  • We angoumoisins but we had never visited the Museum. A little disappointed because it's really reserved for lovers. I think it is more fun to visit during the festival. On the other hand, the Mobius ship has no interest, apart from a library I don't see what it does. I find it unfortunate that the CNBDI is lost its full extent. Suddenly, I find € 7 entry is relatively expensive compared to the time we spent there.

  • The Museum is designed to appeal to children and adults. The temporary exhibition (the stars of Alex Alice Castle) was very well designed, beautiful and interesting. I really enjoyed myself with the temporary exhibition "the great moments of the next French revolution". It is a pure delight. The shop allows then to "refuel" comic book. During your stay in Angoulême feel free to go through the Museum of comics.

  • The Museum is worth a visit but as preventing it is for lovers (a first experience with children has been a little galley). Presentations are very accessible, the path is nice and one can admire a few pearls. With a little luck we have same right to a thematic exhibition.

  • A wonderful museum of the "bandes dessinées", the comic books born in Belgium and France. If you love comics, this is a must-to-go place in Brussels, where temporary exhibitions are hosted along with a permanent collection, like in the museums of traditional art.
  • Interesting but limited displays. Need to be able to read French to get full value.
  • Very good quiet place, can we stay hours and chairs are available to stay :)

  • Very nice premises, the paradise of the comic book fan. 7 euros per entry, a bit expensive for this visit
