CBBD - Belgian Museum of Comics

Local name: CBBD - Musée Belge de la Bande

The comic museum was opened on October 6, 1989. It is located in the Art Nouveau building of the former textile warehouse, designed by Victor Horta. It is a real temple for lovers of this form of drawing, which in Belgium has grown to the rank of art. This is where such famous artists as the Smurf father - Peyo and creator of Tintin - Hergé come from

The exhibition was arranged in five exhibition halls, on the area of 4200 m². The first room is dedicated to the outstanding architect and creator of the building - Victor Horta. In another we will follow the path that the comic goes from the moment of birth in the mind of the creator, through the stages of creation and production.

Treasury in the Peace of St. Rocha is an exhibition that houses original letters, drawings and sketches. In the next room we will meet the most outstanding Belgian comic book creators - above all Herge (creator of Tintno), Peyo (creator of the Smurfs) and Morris (Lucky Luke). Exhibitions are usually enriched with models of characters with real dimensions or also scenography from comic pages. In Cébébédé, because that is the colloquial name of this museum, there is a well-stocked library and a reading room with collections of over 3000 comics in 36 languages.
