A must-see for any Tintin fan, Herge Museum is devoted to the cartoon's artist and creator Georges Remi, penname Herge. While the museum showcases several of his works, it largely focuses on Tintin. Through the nine exhibits learn about Herge's life, inspirations, creations, and characters. The building has been designed with contemporary architecture, as per Remi's interest in modern art. There is also a mini cinema and a cafe/restaurant attached. Don't worry if you aren't staying in the area; the local train station is walking distance.

  • My daughter ( 5 and half) and I went to visit this museum on our day trip to Louvain la neuve. It was a lovely sunny day. I wanted to tell her more about the adventures of Tintin I read as a kid. The ...  more »
  • There is a display of Tintin in the boutique Tintin and the cartoon Museum in Brussels, but it is necessary to come here in both scores and contents. There is also a detailed exhibition on the Life of Elje. A 4-minute walk from the Ruban-la-Neuve station. The staff at the museum are very friendly.

  • This is a fantastic museum that captures the spirit and work of Herge perfectly. We found it very easy to spend 90 minutes viewing the exhibition which is well laid out and all with clear labels and explanations of what you are seeing. The audio guide (included in the price of admission) provides background information relevant to the room you are in. Our son is 10 years old and really enjoyed the time here, I would think that younger children will enjoy looking at the pictures as well. There is a gift shop and cafe on site but no parking. For that you need to park in the cinema car park which is a 5 minute walk away.
  • Very unique experience, and in a good way. Although the gift shop could be improved, like they only have a certain amount of things and the prices are quite drastic, and there were no English translations at all in the gift shop (although there were French and German) so understanding what things were was a bit difficult. Other than that, absolutely brilliant. 👍
