This is for adults (children at heart) and children. Only for the French language comic fans is this place interesting.

One can visit this museum just to see the building as much as one would go for the content. The building was designed by Victor Horta, of Art Nouveau fame, and it's quite impressive. Anyway, the museum is pretty cool. Learn about how comics are developed, from the idea, to the drawing, coloring, printing, etc. There are many comics on display showing the various stages of development. During my visit, there were a few large exhibitions showcasing a few comics by some prominent artists. Signs in English as well French and Flemish (Dutch). Excellent photo opportunities with some of the large items on display. Decent sized gift shop and bathrooms on site. Recommended.

Fascinating to see the cartoon strips and characters that people grew up with in Belgium, some I’d heard of but many I was unfamiliar with. In the category of “known” is Tin Tin, Asterix, and the Smurfs. New to me is a long-time local favourite, Billy & Bob, about a boy and his dog. This is a fascinating museum and well worth a visit. Sections of the museum focus on newspaper cartoon strips, comics, and graphic novels. Collectables from many of the comics are also on display on three floors. Fun for all ages.

Cool place, very well laid out and informative. Great book shop to buy old favourites. This place is well worth a visit in Brussels. There is a bistro cafe next door, bit touristy, but convenient if you just want to sit and have a quick coffee.
