Specialty Museum · Landmark
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. PutBelgian 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.

  • During the covid-19 we can at least visit this comics museum. Lovely place to visit with your children. Or if you are a fan of comics you can go alone...
  • The way of presenting the comics is a bit outdated and it s not cheap. However the building itself is worthwhile the visit. The temporary exhibition made it is quite OK to visit
