location Louvain-la-Neuve
function museum
contributed by jpmm

A museum dedicated to Belgian artist and Tintin author Hergé. The Musée Hergé is situated in a forest and connected to the city of Louvain-la-Neuve by a footbridge. Large, comic-strip-like bay windows allow natural light to fill the large reception area, from which the four large exhibition spaces can be accessed, meandering footbridges link the exhibition spaces. Each of the objects has its own personality; each is a kind of character. Each has a specific sculptural form, colour and unique design. Each displays an aspect, disproportionately enlarged, derived from Hergé’s drawing style. One traces Tintin in America, another King Ottokar’s Sceptre etc.
