The Hergé Museum is much more than your average museum: visitors travel deep within the life and work, the trials, tribulations, and astounding creativity of one man, and in doing so traverse the era in which he lived.

More than 80 original plates, and 800 photographs, documents and objects have been brought together under one roof. The building itself was designed and built within the picturesque green setting of Walloon Brabant, by the architect Christian de Portzamparc: a little like a Grail hidden within a sacred grove!

Hergé was not only Tintin. Graphic designer, caricaturist, cartoonist, illustrator, storyteller – he was a multi-talented artist who was a perfect reflection of the twentieth century.
