The Belgian Comic Strip Center (Dutch: Belgisch Centrum voor het Beeldverhaal, French Centre belge de la Bande dessinée) 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 .
it one of the best sight seeing in Brussel .

It's all about the comics May 26, 2009
If you love comics, specially those from Belgium, this is an absolute must!
The museum is located in the city centre of Brussels, in an older building designed by Victor Horta in 1906. It is a beautiful example of Belgian Art Nouveau (Art Deco in the States). There is over 4200 m2 of exhibition space about comics and their artists. Figures you might encounter are: Tintin, Spike and Suzy, The Smurfs, Lucky Luke, Nero, Gaston, Spirou, Boule et Bill, the Marsupilami and many other characters.
You'll see original drawings who've never been published or who've been drawn just to get an idea for the end product, but also objects from the comics in 3D! Some of these objects can be bought in the shop, of course those are not the museum objects themselves.
(I've rewritten this partly because the name of the museum (at this site) was changed, as with the address and everything.)
