Expert review of Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée
The Belgian Comic Strip Centre is housed in a former textiles warehouse designed by Art-Nouveau master Victor Horta in 1906. It’s a heady tangle of twisted iron railings, tiered balconies and scrolled columns. The permanent exhibitions cover the history of the Belgian comic strip and there’s a good chunk given over to the genre’s most famous artist: Hergé, creator of Tintin. Young children will probably not be enthralled by the bland set up of rows of glass boxes, but there are several statues of Tintin and other cartoon characters dotted around the museum that make good photo opportunities.
Adults 8 euros; children 3 euros; concession 6 euros; free entry with Brussels Card — see Brussels insider tips. Ticket includes an audio guide and free entry to Marc Sleen Museum across the road.
