Belgium has a particular affinity for comics, and it is no wonder the Comic Strip Center would find itself here. The building is the first thing many visitors come to see; an art nouveau masterpiece by Victor Horta houses all the cartoons within. The museum itself provides an overview of comic strip history and features important characters in European cartooning—including Brussels locals the Smurfs, as well as the world famous Tintin. Rotating exhibits tend to focus on more adult themed work, examining the significance of comics in art and communication. Signage in the museum includes some English, and guidebooks are provided, but be advised that the comics themselves are only featured in French.
