  • Pretty sweet cartoon museum! They have a big library of comics to look through and buy. The actual museum part wasn't very extensive. Didn't have much to offer for someone who isn't familiar with comics. A big part of it is in French so if you don't read French you get even less but I feel like it would be worth it if comics is your passion. They let you leave the museum and come back later too within the same day so that's chill. It's worth going to check out if you find yourself here.
  • Great musee for comic and cartoon aficionados. Mostly in French, but enough English to get you by.
  • 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.
