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...

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.

I knew from the reviews that it was based on Belgian comics so I wouldn't recognise many of the characters however it was still worth a visit. It is 10 euros per adult (i'm not sure about kids) and we spent over an hour in there. It was interesting to learn how comics are produced, I would have just liked... More

Lovely building and nice installation. Very friendly staff. The artwork exhibited is good for non-collectors or comics specialist. It is all very professional, but the great French and Belgian comics authors are mostly MIA.

The museum was very dull and every exhibition was laid out in the same way. There was a small section on Tintin and an even smaller section on The Smurfs. Other than that, unless you're a die hard comic fan you won't have heard of any of the others and will find it extremely boring.

Came to visit even though I know little about comics. A little difficult to find I thought but it's just off the Main Street. The entrance has a shop, restaurant and stairs up to the main museum. Staff were very friendly and helpful and told me where things were. First floor has exhibitions on how comic strips are made and... More

Was originally a fabric warehouse, a very posh one! The architect was asked to provide good daylight which he did. A interesting and different place to visit, didn't realise that Belgium has such a "comic" history.
