Marc Sleen Museum
Come and see the Marc Sleen Museum just across the street of the Belgian Comic Strip Center! In the unique setting of what used to be a newspaper office, the Marc Sleen Museum proposes a permanent exhibition, a reading room and series of temporary exhibits in order to discover the many facets of an exceptional work by a superb storyteller, a master comic strip artist and a brilliant cartoonist: Marc Sleen.
The work of Marc Sleen, a living legend of Belgian comic strip art in Flemish, was officially transferred to rue des Sables in Brussels, just across from the Belgian Comic Strip Center, in the new museum named after him. The choice of a building in Rue des Sables was no accident. In this same street, just a few yards away from the new Marc Sleen Foundation, Nero first saw the light in 1947. At the time, the artist was an illustrator and cartoonist for “De Nieuwe Gids”, a daily paper. By setting up in rue des Sables, the Marc Sleen Foundation has doubled back in time – the hero of more than 200 comic books has come back home. The address is also a new homage to a great Belgian artist.
