Belgium, one of the main actors in the comic strips, had to have its own museum over this art.
It is installed in the old Waucquez stores, built by Victor Horta in 1906. This museum shelters an incredible historical and contemporary collection of plates and objects over the comic strip and its authors. You can also follow in one of the first halls the genesis of the comic strip. On the ground floor, you will find the largest comic strip library in the world, one reading room and a restaurant which makes a good stopover to have lunch.
Closed on the 1st of January and the 25th of December.
