It wasn't worth paying the entrance fee to look at comics. Most of them are in French so as someone who only speaks English, it was dull. There is information in English but it is poorly translated ("Haddock betrays a lot of emotion which complementary Tin Tin"). The staff were also incredibly rude. When I asked if there was a...

Being one of the biggest Tintin fan's, I was seriously looking forward to this place. While it does display a lot of Tintin stuff, the museum seems fractured and I didn't really like the tour very much.

It was worth the time and money. There were lifts if you couldn't take the stairs. A cafe and a gift shop. The comic strips were cool however there wasn't much interaction with the displays and would probably be quite boring for young children. We enjoyed it even though we weren't comic enthusiasts.

Cool concept - but the smurf and tin tin components need to be bigger and more interactive/fun. The price (€10 for over 25) is not worth a visit.

So this was not my first choice but I actually was super glad I went. I love comics just as much as the next geek out girl but my choice is more green lantern, wonder woman, spiderman and Thundercats. I was actually really surprised to find out that Smurfs were also a belgian creation! It's a bit pricey but you... More

Good study of comics process. Little bit expensive as €10pp entrance. Not so convenience to English speaker. Not a must-go place to traveler.

This is one of the must see in Brussels. Really informative, with explanations on French, Dutch and English on each of the images on the walls. It is about the history of the Franco-Belgian comics, with one some of the most popular ones, such as Tintin, The Smurfs, Throgal, Spirou, Lucky Luke, Gastron, Nero, Boerke (really nice room), etc. There...

On our trip from Paris to Amsterdam, we originally planned to stop by Brussels, and used the time to visit Musee Herge (famous Tintin comic author) in outskirt of Brussels. Only the day before we realized that our stop in Brussels fell on Monday, in which the only day in the week the Musee Herge is closed! Feeling disappointed (myself... More

Excellent for adults and children. Informative, educational, history of comics and many of the European (Belgium) characters. Our children enjoyed it. There is also a library for locals and a good cafe serving slightly expensive but great chocolate waffles and beer and cream and frites.
