Belgian Centre for Comic Strip Art

The Belgian Centre for Comic Strip Art chronicles the history of Belgian comics. Housed in a former department store in Brussels' business district, it exhibits examples of comic strips in French, Dutch and English.

The full range of comic art is covered, including science fiction, wild west, crime and politics, as well as children's comics such as The Smurfs.

It has several exhibits on Belgium's most famous comic characters Tintin and Snowy and their creator Hergé. The style of the Tintin comics and their history is examined, including life-size models of characters and sets from Tintin's adventures. There is a shop, research library and restaurant on the ground floor of the historic building, which was designed by the Belgian art nouveau architect Victor Horta.
