The Hergé Museum

  • museeherge00

This year the Hergé Museum in Belgium will be five years old.

So if you still have not visited, take that step to get on the Eurostar and travel to Bruxelles then travel on to Louvain-la-Neuve. You will be well rewarded for this small effort.

The Museum to Hergé is an extraordinary place, not only in structure but also of what it contains and reveals. If you just think of Tintin, think again, for here in this one place you get exposed to how Hergé explored his drawing style through the world around him.

It’s through this fascinating museum Hergé is introduced to us, alongside his characters and the influences of his time.

Can we also direct you to the book, The Art of Hergé, as Fanny Rodwell explains in the preface, “One begins the book as one enters the museum, discovering the magnificent architecture of Christian de Portzamparc. Using concrete and glass, this architect’s respectful imagination has captured the spirit of Hergé-his clear line, his luminosity, his sensuality.”

Take a look at some of the fantastic resin models inspired by the work of Hergé here.
