Long Description:
(fr) Plus de 80 planches originales, 800 photos, documents et objets divers ont été rassemblés en un seul lieu, magique, lumineux, audacieux. Son architecte, Christian de Portzamparc, poète du volume et de l’espace, a rêvé et conçu un bâtiment hors-norme pour un patrimoine qui l’est tout autant.

À l’image du Graal dans la forêt de Brocéliande, le Musée Hergé dévoile ses audaces et ses trésors à l’orée du Parc de la Source, poumon vert d’une ville neuve, dans la belle province du Brabant wallon. Surprise garantie avec le dessinateur aux talents multiples : graphiste, publiciste, caricature, scénariste et peintre à ses heures perdues, Hergé fut tout cela et bien plus encore.

(eng) More than 80 original drawings, 800 photos, documents and objects have been collected in one place, magical, bright, bold. Its architect, Christian de Portzamparc, poet of volume and space, dreamed and designed an unconventional building to a heritage that is equally important.

Like the Holy Grail in the forest of Brocéliande, the Hergé Museum unveils its audacity and its treasures at the edge of the Source Park, the green lung of a new city, in the beautiful province of Walloon Brabant. Surprise guaranteed with the designer of many talents: graphic designer, publicist, caricature, writer and painter in his spare time, Hergé was all that and more.
