The Comics Art Museum is the place to be for comic book fans: learn the history of the comic book and its founding fathers in a magnificent Art Nouveau setting designed by Victor Horta. It also regularly presents exceptional temporary exhibitions. Feeling a little hungry? Enjoy a gourmet break at the Brasserie Horta.
Then take a short hop to the Marc Sleen Museum, located just across the street in a former newspaper building. It is dedicated to the star of Dutch-language comic strip and its legacy in contemporary creation. Enter Marc Sleen's reconstructed studio, where his hero, Nero, was born. The museum also hosts different creative spaces occupied by young authors.
The MOOF Museum presents thousands of figurines in the settings in which the characters experience their adventures: the Smurfs' village, Lucky Luke's western, Tintin and his friends on the Moon... This is an original way to rediscover your favourite series as well as the stages involved in adapting them for the small and big screen.
Another unusual address dedicated to comics is the Autrique House, an Art Nouveau gem designed by Victor Horta. It presents a large number of themed exhibitions set in decor designed by François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters, famous authors of The Obscure Cities series.
Louvain-la-Neuve, around 30 kilometres from Brussels and a university town in Walloon Brabant, is home to the Hergé Museum. It has a unique collection of archives, documents, original plates, photos and objects allowing visitors to get to know the father of Tintin, who was a cartoonist, scriptwriter, graphic designer, publicist and much more.
