Housed in the artistic setting of the Waucquez Warehouses, two of Belgium's specialties go hand-in-hand: Art Nouveau and comics. The Center, built in 1906 by Victor Horta, is home to a fascinating permanent exhibition featuring comics from more than 650 artists. The exhibit indeed traces the rise of comic books in Belgium after World War II, which have become the country's so-called "Ninth Art." The Center also features regular temporary and interactive exhibitions. If you aren't fully satiated, the museum also boasts a great comic strip shop, a wonderful cafe and the largest library of comic strips in the world!
