On the outskirts of Louvain-la-Neuve in the Walloon region, the Hergé Museum has made Tintin the star of its galleries.
It is almost 9 years since the Hergé Museum opened its doors, in Belgium, and it is still fascinating visitors. Built at the edge of a park by the French architect Christian de Portzampac, the postmodern building is in the shape of an elongated prism, which becomes visible through a succession of great bay windows. The space is full of surprises and colours.
A museum dedicated to Hergé in Louvain-la-Neuve
Dedicated to the work of the most famous of Belgian cartoonists, the collections are a permanent homage to Hergé. At Louvain-la-Neuve, the man and his work are presented interactively in a trajectory filled with emotion, miles from the cliché of classic cultural spaces.
Characters from celebrated comics
In the galleries, the visit unfolds to the rhythm of the adventures of Tintin, Snowy, Captain haddock and the other characters that the author made famous the world over. From 7 to 77, fans who thought they knew all there was to know about the work of one of the 20th century’s great artists, emerge surprised and nostalgic for a Golden Age. More Tintin-loving than ever...
