Besides chocolat and beer, Belgium is also known for their comic strip creators and heroes.
With more than 700 comic strip authors, Belgium has more comic strip artists per square kilometre than any other country in the world!
Being the land of the Smurfs, Lucky Luke and Tintin it is no surprise that there exists The Belgian Comic Strip Centre.
Located in an art nouveau masterpiece designed by Victor Horta and just a few steps away from Grand’Place and the Royal district, this unique museum depicts the stages of putting together a comic strip as well as wonderful displays of cartoon art form artists around the world and of course Belgium’s most famous cartoonists.
The regularly renewed permanent exhibitions and a diversified programme of temporary exhibitions enable visitors to discover the countless aspects of comics art.
If you come to visit the Belgian Comic Strip Center, you will witness the unusual marriage of the Ninth Art and Art Nouveau, two artistic forms of expression which have always been particularly cherished in Brussels
With its 4.200 m² of permanent and temporary exhibitions and more than 200.000 visitors a year, in no time this impressive museum became one of the main attractions of Brussels and will seduce you in many ways.
The museum opens every day from 10 am to 6 pm.
