Hey, that's great guys, thanks. I'll definitely check out the Musee de Bande Dessinee, and see if I can get to the station with the murals.

If you've only got a day or so, stick to central Brussels, plenty to see.

I've got a map somewhere of various Tintin sites, not sure if you are able to buy one still from the Tintin shop.

No they stopped their collaboration with Moulinsart years ago, they don't have anything connected to Tintin at all nowdays.

Hey again guys, haven't been on here for a (long) while! I'm going to try and go to Brussels soon; are the Tintin museum and shop in central Brussels or further out?

Unfortunately the Tintin museum hasn’t actually been built, but you will find the Tintin Shop just off the Market Place, and the CBBD (the comic-art museum - which may be the one you asked about, as it does have some Hergé/ Tintin stuff) is located not far away: all in easy walking distance of the centre of town.
A bit further out is the Ethnographic Museum, where Hergé did research for some of his books, but it can be recommended as the tram ride takes you through the sort of suburb which Hergé grew up and lived in.

It took me four days to see all Herge related stuff in Brussels, but that included a lot of the festival special events that won;t be there now.

I did do a lot of things though (went to find the fetish and the atomium and the Herge st) but I also walked everywhere from my hotel about 4 miles from the centre.

I also spent 2 hours hunting round for Biblio Herge which i saw on a sign in the outskirts and never found

Plenty of Non Herge things as well to see, Brussels is a lovely city

Hi
I was wondering if it was possible to visit Hergé's studios in Brussels? And are there any other places of particular interest to a tintinologist worth visiting in that city?
