Belgian Comic Strip Center, Brussels Overview

The Belgian Comic Strip Center is one of the most popular attractions in Brussels. A tribute to the zwanzei or sense of humour of the people of Brussels, the Comic Museum houses not just the famous Tintin and Smurfs comics but even lesser-known Belgian comics.

The Art Nouveau house designed by Victor Horta within which the museum is located, adds to the whimsical appeal of the place. The regularly renewed permanent exhibitions and a diversified programme of temporary exhibitions enable visitors to discover the countless aspects of comics art. Tintin and the Smurfs lead the way towards further adventures, an encounter with a world where creativity has no limits.

Each section of the museum contains a lot of information about particular topics (history, art, etc.), which is very well presented and translated in three different languages (French, Dutch and English). However, shown illustrative examples mostly focus on Belgian comics and are moreover either in French or in Dutch.
