BELGIUM ~The Royal Museum of Central Africa

...This museum is a magnificient building in a beautiful setting, a large park... I've been there once, on a schoooltrip a very long time ago... I would love to visit it again but I will have to be quick because the museum will stay open until July 2013, then it will close for 3 years for a complete renovation...
When the museum reopens in May 2015, it will have drastically changed in appearance.
Héééél erg bedankt Johan voor alweer een leuke verrassing in mijn brievenbus!!

With special postmark from the Antwerp Book Fair. It is a large trade fair for books, held annually.And with so nice stamp of the serie "This is Belgium" with Jommeke and his best friend Flip one of my favorite comic heroes of my childhood!!:D (see sheetlet below)
The Royal Museum for Central Africa is an ethnographical and natural history museum in Tervuren, near Brussels. It was first built to showcase King Leopold II's Congo Free State for the 1897 World Exhibition.

The RMCA has the reputation of being one of the world’s most beautiful and impressive museums devoted to Africa. The museum also plays a crucial role in numerous international projects and networks to which it contributes expertise and specialized knowledge. RMCA scientists write over 300 scientific publications a year.
I just want to show how lovely the "This is Belgium - Belgium, cartoonland" sheet is.
10 stamps representing all our most famous comic heroes.
