Admission free along with a “special” guided tour of the Hergé Museum!

Sunday April 1st
And no, it’s not an April Fool’s trick; the Hergé Museum is free to everyone on this day!


The Hergé Music Library

As if lured by the sound of the mermaids, visitors to the Hergé Museum enter the room on the third floor. Charmed by this melody which invites us to explore the work of this great draftsman...

Hergé and Chang

We know Tintin's faithful companion is Snowy, a white fox-terrier who follows his master Tintin throughout his 24 adventures...

The patron saint of children will soon be here!

The arrival of Saint-Nicolas is eagerly awaited by all good children...

Couverture du 'Petit Vingtième'

Hergé devoted many illustrations to the patron saint of children, both advertising illustrations and drawings in his comic strips from Tintin to Quick and Flupke. For the illustrator the occasion was an opportunity to promote his work, but also to create advertising campaigns for toys sold in the Brussels department stores A L’Innovation and Au Bon Marché. Le Petit Vingtième and Tintin magazine displayed the superb drawings on front covers and in the inside pages, all in praise of Saint-Nicolas.

In Saint-Nicolas’ bag we find the beautiful colour books created by Hergé for “young people from 7 to 77 years old”! Truly a wizard of words and images, Hergé – like the great saint – has always worked for the sole purpose of bringing happiness to his audience, small and not-so-small children from Belgium and elsewhere.
Mission accomplished!
