 This is an amazing comics (Bande Dessinee) museum in Belgium we went to. To bad I couldn't get the blue truck to move out of the way of all the comics in the window. Nice to see a culture that is so supportive of popular culture! 

There was a library in the building, mostly full of comic albums, that's what they call them in Europe. The covers are hard bound and very uniform in size. 

Herge, the creator of Tintin is highly regarded as one of the greatest Belgian artist.

The whole museum had the process of how comics are made. Including the rough layouts and written script to the final artwork to published comic. It was all so wonderfully presented.

The historical context was so well done, with this physical prop out of the Little Nemo comic strip...a full size bed!
