Quite a big museum - spent 3 hr - a must for Tintin and Herge fans. Tells the story of the Tintin author with details from his life story. The majority of exhibits are examples from sketches and prints from the Tintin books, explaining the...More

Very well designed museum that takes visitors on a journey inside the 'genius' of Hergé. Puts a lot of the work of Hergé in their historical context and has a lot of material in there. A visit needs around 3 hours in my view. The...More

Great museum to learn the whole story of Hergé and Tintin, but it isn't a museum you can stroll and look. You have to listen to the audio guide (included in price) to really enjoy the museum. The restaurent, The Petit Vingtième serves great food...More

Tintin is fun. Hergé took fun seriously. But this museum doesn't take fun serious. It takes Hergé serious though - too serious. It is a place of silent worshipping of a genius instead of a celebration of the work of a genius. I love Tintin...More

This museum is a tribute to both Herge and Tin Tin. I grew up reading Tin Tin and this is the one place I wanted to see when in Brussels. It's not difficult to get to from Brussels as it's on the direct line to...More

I would recommend getting the kids acquainted with Tintin first. Buy a few of the most child- friendly Tintin stories ( In Tibet, Secret of the Licorne, for example , or just let them choose themselves) and only then take... More
