We visited this museum again. If you are in Dutch comics they provide a good overview. Unfortunately, the rooms and signs are starting to show their age and cold use a bit of TLC. Please note: if you cannot read Dutch you might struggle because the signs are all in Dutch

If you're a comic book fan and might know the one or the other dutch comic; than that's the place to go in Groningen. The signs are written in Dutch, but they have a guide in english at the reception to give you the major explanations.

If you want to spend a lot of money to see comic books, which you can find in every comic book store, then just go theren, dont go there over 20 degrees, its warm inside. And 45 minutes later your out again...

Never thought that we would have so fun spending a couple hours in this museum. Everytime you see a comic that you have ever read when you're still a child, you will mumble, "ah, that time I was still in the 6th grade" etc. etc. It's childhood memory. You will see not only the Netherlands writer's collection but also international.... More

The Strip Museum is located in the same building as a Mc Donalds. As the name reveals, this museum focusses on the (hi)story of Dutch comic books. A few famous series and authors are highlighted, like Martin Toonder. You are encouraged to read a few comic strips at the spot, but in fact the display is quite extensive, so i... More

You must know and love your comic strips for this one or it is a complete waste of time. It is all in Dutch and unless you can read and understand some Dutch you will not get that much out of a visit.

Nice museum, soon to be relocated to Groninger Forum, about Dutch "strips" - in good English: cartoonists. Nice for adults as well as kids, conveniently located above a MacDonalds ;-) Also sell cartoons in the store.

Even as a Dutch speaking person I thought it was not really interesting. Indeed most of the collection are Dutch comics. You see a display of "Kuifje"-albums (Tintin), furthermore you see a display of "Suske and Wiske"-albums, so what? There is no point, only a few rare albums. Some rather nice goodies. I liked the shop the best. There is... More

I did enjoy this museum, even though I'm not the world's biggest fan of comic strips. It had a nice variety of items on display covering most of the more popular comic strips, specifically, Dutch comics. There were small sections on other popular European and American comics, and an extremely small section on Japanese comics and, on the top floor,... More
