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.

Belgian Comic Strip Center reviews
Amazing museum, which superseded my expectations; apart the typical history of comics from the paleolithic to Yellow Kid and the various techniques, the icing on the cake was the Louvre exposition...

Interesting museum with lots to see. We enjoyed the video room too. One thing to note is that the general information is all translated into French and English, but many of the comic strips...

Comic strip museum. This museum offers a lot of exhibitions on the history and development of the comic strip, from earliest history to modern times. Unfortunately there's no audio guide, and I found the exhibitions a bit sparse. The place is huge, but a lot of it is empty space. The things that are there, are really well displayed, with a lot of nice photo ops. The Louvre exhibition is also quite well done.
Cool building! And very informative so I imagine it's a good one if you are into comics.
