The Hergé Museum, in Wallonia, is dedicated to the illustrator who created Tintin. An absolute must stop for any comic book lover.

The museum is located in Louvain-la-Neuve, province of Walloon Brabant, a mere 30 minutes' drive from Brussels.

Georges Remi

Georges Remi, who would become universally known by his penname Hergé, produced his first comic book about an intrepid boy reporter with a perpetually surprised expression and a bag of tricks up his sleeve. ‘Tintin in the Land of the Soviets’ was followed by 22 further adventures, which sold millions of copies around the world and revolutionised the comic strip with their combination of meticulous line drawings, thrills and spills, well-researched science, memorable characters and quirky humour.

Much Tintin memorabilia, and a comprehensive selection of Hergé’s other work – drawings, sketches, posters and caricatures – can be found at the Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve.

The building itself was designed and built by French architect Christian de Portzamparc.

Your visit to the Hergé Museum

The visitors' route will take you through 3 levels, starting with the top one. There are 8 exhibition rooms to discover, retracing the artist's life and work. The collections feature original pieces changed every 4 months to keep some variety, personal objects, models, movies and visual experiences.

This museum is a dynamic space, organising temporary exhibitions and events themed around Hergé and comic books.
