Belgian Comic Strip Center is a unique museum located in the heart of Brussels, dedicated to the fascinating world of Comic Strips. In Belgium, Comic Strips are also called Bande Dessinée in French or Stripverhaal in Dutch.

Housed in a beautiful Art Nouveau building designed by the famous architect Victor Horta, the museum invites international travelers to explore the rich history, creativity, and diversity of Belgian and international comics.

From well-known characters like Tintin, the Smurfs, and Asterix to lesser-known gems, the Belgian Comic Strip Center showcases a wide range of comic art. You’ll discover the various stages of comic strip creation, from the initial concept to the final artwork, as well as the techniques and tools used by the artists.

There’s also a specialized library, a comic book shop, and a lovely “Brasserie Horta” where you can relax and enjoy a meal. During the weekends, you can have a generous breakfast in the Brasserie before visiting the museum.

With its engaging displays, interactive exhibits, and family-friendly atmosphere, the Belgian Comic Strip Center is a must-visit destination for comic fans and anyone interested in this vibrant art form.
