First of all, it is important to not that the museum is mostly Belgian with a strong emphasis on Tintin. We were disappointed not to see more diversity in the displays and very little pedagogical sense to the museum layout and works presented. There are many nice originals but unless you know what to look for it gets repetitive. It... More

There was a massive queue to get in, only one till and the woman didn't seem confident to operate it. The museum is really just for adults and teenagers which was a disappointment. I was hoping it would have appeal for younger children but even the Smurfs area wasn't very interactive. She loves the Smurfs so we had been excited... More

A great museum which covers all aspects of BD (comic-book) art. Great shop, too. The building itself is as interesting as its contents.

A lot of reading, but also a lot of watching and reading actual comic strips. As an english speaker it was a shame I couldn't understand the comic strips myself, but the english descriptions made up for it. Very good for families and solo travellers, not so much for couples. As a person who likes doing creative writing, I got... More

Easy to follow exhibitions even if you're not interested in comics, great to learn about the history and how it relates to Belgium. Great stuff about the Smurfs and Tin Tin.

Tin Tin may be the most famous Belgian, and Belgium clearly takes its cartoonists serioiusly. There were a number of other cartoons featured which have not broken through internationally. The building is a beautiful art deco structure, so if you like cartoons and you also like art deco / art nouveau, then this is definitely for you.

My 5 year old daughter loves Tintin and since time doesn't allow us to make a trip outside of Brussels to the Tintin Museum, I decided to bring her here. A lot of the exhibits are target at adults and older children, and my daughter was just looking out for objects. But nonetheless, she had fun and the space is... More
