The basics

Housed in a striking minimalist-style building, the Hergé Museum shines the spotlight on Georges Remi and the inspiration behind his beloved comic book character, Tintin, and his trusty terrier, Snowy.

Visitors explore the three-floor museum independently—perhaps choosing to use an audio guide for added insight—roaming the eight rooms to view artifacts, videos, and Remi’s own possessions to understand his life and creative processes. Exhibits include more than 800 original plates and drawings, biographical films, and examples of Remi’s other work. Visitors can also buy Tintin merchandise at the shop and relax in the basement café-restaurant.
