The marriage of the 9th Art and Art Nouveau

Located in the heart of Brussels, in a majestic Art Nouveau building, created by Victor Horta in 1906, the Belgian Comic Strip Center opened its doors to the public on October 6th 1989. In no time this impressive museum became one of the main attractions of Brussels. Every year more than 200.000 visitors come here to explore 4.200 m² of permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Permanent exhibitions

The Invention of Comic Strip
How did the comic strip begin, and how is it defined? This exhibition takes you on a journey in enormous strides through the history of the world and its civilisations.
The Art of Comic Strip
This exposition proposes to explore the comic strip in all its forms, from the creative process to the range of genres that constitute the European comic strip today.
Horta and the Waucquez Warehouse
This exhibition tells the story of a shop the like of which is no longer seen. Now over 100 years old, this is the only semi-industrial building designed by Victor Horta still in existence today. And what an existence it has had!
The Museum of Imagination (1929-1959)
This exhibition shows the greatest moments in the history of the European comic strip, popularised by the Belgian pioneers. From Hergé to Roba, it explores the careers and works of the authors who have made Belgium the Kingdom of the Comic Strip.
