If you're a fan of comic books (Tintin, Lucky Luke, The Smurfs, Largo Winch, Jommeke, Nero, Buck Danny, Blake and Mortimer, and so many more) you have to go to this museum. They give a permanent exhibition about the history of comic books and the main Belgian titles and characters, and there are temporary exhibitions also all the time.
If you're totally not interested in comic books, the exhibitions can be a bit boring I think. But still the museum is worth to go have a look, because it's housed in a beautiful art-nouveau building. The famous architect Victor Horta built it in 1905 and originally it was a department store. It's really nice to walk around downstairs a little bit (the ticket entrance for the museum is on the first floor). On the ground floor there's also a nice shop (where you can buy comic books of course but lots of other related stuff also) and a little less nice brasserie/restaurant.

Open every day from 10am to 6pm. Closed on Mondays.

Address: Zandstraat 20
Directions: In the north part of the center, 5 minutes walking from the Nieuwstraat.
