The Belgian Center for Comic Strip Art moved into its present facility in 1987. Since then, it has grown rapidly. The collections include 40,000 printed titles and 5,000 original drawings, which are rotated in and out of public display.
Within the Center for Comic Strip Art is the restaurant the Brasserie Horta, an Art Nouveau architectural gem. The name comes from the famous architect of both the restaurant and the rest of the facility, Victor Horta.
As one might expect, the famous Belgian comic character Tintin and his dog Milou hold a special place of honor in the Belgian Center for Comic Strip Art, with numerous statues in addition to the archived two-dimensional paper creations.
The collections are supplemented by a reading library. Admission prices are very reasonable, for both the museum and the library.
