Comic Museum at Brussels

On our way to Amsterdam, we planned for short stop in Brussels, Belgium. Initially planned to visit Herge Museum, we found out that the museum was closed every Monday! So we diverted our destination to Comic Museum in Brussels. 

It turned out to be a good decision, as the museum is really nice! It has lots of interesting information on comic history, genres and the process how a comic was made. Rafif, particularly, was really fascinated with the museum. Never before I saw him gave attention to every exhibits in museum. Well, comics and art of drawing are one of his interest and talents. 

For me, a big Tintin fans, the museum has a dedicated Herge and Tintin section, which is really nice. It provides information on Tintin’s history, display some real-life stuffs from Tintin stories, and great exhibits. It almost compensated me for not being able to visit Herge Museum. 

In the end, a very well spent stop indeed in Brussels, Belgium. Happy!
