Belgian Comic Strip Center, Brussels

2.7
#12 of 91 in Museums in Brussels
Walk through the history of Tintin at the Belgian Comic Strip Center, which celebrates the art of the comic. The center is housed inside a former department store designed by Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, whose great glass ceiling lets in enough natural light to illuminate the museum galleries. Exhibits showcase French, English, and Dutch comic art from its earliest days to the present. An extensive Tintin exhibit is the main attraction with the history of the artwork and its creator, and even life-size models of the characters. Browse copies of some of Europe's best-known comics and graphic novels in the reading room and library. A self-guided tour is the most popular way to explore the building and the exhibits, because information about each exhibit is available in multiple languages. Put Belgian Comic Strip Center into our Brussels day trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The collection is rich in boards of comic strip, excerpts of press, and reproductions figurine. Drawing-animated, digital games broadcasts... The tour is interesting, even for non-habitues at the comic strip

  • I'm sure that you will like here if you are also like comics. e.g smurf, Tintin, Asterix... there have many kinds of comics displaying, most of them are my childhood.  more »
  • Very nice little Museum, with good exposure on the creation of comics which is very interesting. We loved the part about the Smurfs and tintin, however, or is passed Spirou? The cat? Lucky Luck? A little disappointed with this side if... In addition the temporary exhibition on China does not bring much to our liking... We would have liked to know more about other comics... The price is correct. Nice staff at the reception. About the shop, she is very pretty, with a wide choice of BD attention however prices are higher when in comic book stores in the streets of Brussels (ex postcard downtown 1 euro against 1.50 in the Museum Shop)
