    Informative. Can be found quantities of books. Well-ventilated space. Not to miss if you like comics

    The exhibition of posters Gaumont might be well if we understand better how to use keyboards. Expo permanent lack of contextualization, including videos without sound, for example the propaganda with Popeye film. Space on the creation is mainly a collection of testimonies of contemporary cartoonists, with beautiful plates, certainly. I was waiting a topo on the creation of a comic book (sketch, layout, texts, highlight color, choice of format). When of audio guides?

    I very want to go but I did not expect this. The price is reduced during the summer holidays happily and free for children... The play area is not too many. Kids who used to go to museums and who love comics were not excited about the visit. The exhibition on the Gaumont films has been more rewarding than the rest. I stayed on my hunger. We ended with a treasure hunt on the island of Marquet who has proved to be more entertaining than the rest.

    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.
