  • A very nice visit with works to discover Museum. The admission ticket is not expensive and I find it nice to have this type of Museum in the city of the comics festival. I recommend to lovers of boards full of inks.

  • Beautiful edifice, but the visit is not exciting. Not be suitable for young audiences. Interest moderate for adults.

  • The Museum of comics of Angoulême is located in a beautiful near the banks of the Charente building... the framework is perfect, the toilets are funny and the shop very provided, it could become a public space even more enjoyable by making it a little more fun and less linear, for example by sharing the adventures of the hero of the comic - known and less known to discover - perhaps by creating thematic spaces (humorous - Gaston Lagaffe, Quick and Flupke - reports - Tintin, Spirou and Fantasio, Jeanette Pointu - realistic and modern - Largo Winch-, historical - Asterix-Alix, from heaven to space - Natacha, the Scrameustache-, science fiction, Blake and Mortimer, Philemon, intellectual and committed - Achille Talon-...), where it would be possible to share their adventures with objects and interactive activities (but not necessarily all audiovisual) (the Aquarium of La Rochelle is a good for example). Only question, how do I do share these spaces with people from around the world (for example when my Asian people visited and if I am wrong some texts or posters were not translated, or in English), without investing millions and to keep the place warm, why not a place where the Angoumois and visitors can meet with friends or family in the evening (this could be a reflection of the schools which the) campuses are located nearby). Can Gaston gaffes be understood by all? Would it be possible to create temporary spaces, can be expected to become final to discover the latest creations? The idea of places to read comics, with comfortable chairs, is to keep (here again, I don't remember having seen a few copies available in other languages). Finally, it is also difficult to understand a glance nesting or not different spaces: the comic Museum, Museum of paper, library..., can be also making the place more accessible from the top of the ramparts (not terrible to have to cross two roads, which one very busy)...

  • 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 :)
