    The comic book and graphic art museum in Angoulême

    The largest museum of comics in Europe.

    Comic books are in a veritable world of their own. This art form has its own history. The musée de la bande dessinée or Museum of Comics in Angoulême, the largest museum of comics in Europe, opened its doors to the public in June 2009. It is located in old industrial warehouses on the banks of the Charente.

    Fully renovated and extended with a new area of 5000 m² (SHON), these old warehouses host the prestigious permanent collection dedicated to comics, an art form which made Angouleme famous internationally.

    The new site overlooks a vast esplanade, with serene views over the Charente, and the historic town of Angoulême visible in the distance.

    A place of conservation, but also a multi-purpose place dedicated to the image, as well as a venue for all audiences, the Museum of Comics in Angoulême is a place of scientific reference, with unique archives and a fully equipped bookshop.
