The Comic Strip Museum is well worth visiting for more than just comic strips, although you will certainly find your fill this museum. But first take a good look around you at the building, inside and out. The Comic Strip Museum is located in an art nouveau setting, the Waucquez Warehouses. These warehouses are famous thanks to a revolutionary architect, Victor Horta. Done in the Belgian art nouveau style, the Comic Strip Museum was built in 1906 for the Waucquez family. They used it for a wholesale cloth business. Look for a glass ceiling that filters sunlight into the central hall. The warehouses were restored between 1987-1989.

With the pure filtered sunlight you will be able to get a good view of the collection of Belgium comic strips, a relatively new form of art for the Belgians. There were actually two languages the comic strips appeared in – French language comics were called Bandes Dessines, and the Flemish comics were dubbed Stripverhalen. One of the best known comic strip creators is Herge – the father of Tintin. Wily Vandersteen created Suske and Wiske (Willy and Wanda). The Comic Strip Museum displays sets of enlarged drawings and 3-D re-creations of many of the strips. It's a grand place to learn all about the brith and development of a comic strip.
