Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée information
Though the Hergé Museum is much more memorable, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre offers a definitive overview of the country’s vibrant comic-strip culture. Even if you’re not excited by the ‘Ninth Art’, do peep inside the impressive 1906 art nouveau building, a Victor Horta classic with wrought-iron superstructure and a glass roof. You don’t have to pay an entrance fee to enjoy the central hallway or to drink a coffee (€2.20) at the attached café .
