If you are longing to get out of the city, then why not taking a trip to Louvain-la-Neuve to visit the Hergé Museum? Entrance is free the first Sunday of the month.
The Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve takes you on a journey through the life of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, Gerges Remi, also known as Hergé.
The museum offers an extensive perspective of the artist’s life with thousands of sources related to the work of Hergé.
Hergé was not only Tintin. Graphic designer, caricaturist, cartoonist, illustrator and storyteller, he was a multi-talented artist who was a perfect reflection of the twentieth century.
More than 80 original plates, 800 photographs, documents and objects have been brought together under one roof.
The building itself was built in the verdant setting of Walloon Brabant by the architect Christian de Portzamparc: a little Grail-like figure hidden within a sacred grove.
Good to know:
