This is a call for all Tintinologists out there that happen to be also aviation enthusiasts!

Until 10th January 2019 you will be able to enjoy the exhibition “Tintin et ses Avions” (Tintin and his aircraft”) at the Aeroscopia museum in Toulouse.

Fans of the Belgian journalist-adventurer already know of the prominent place that Hergé gave to aircraft in this comic books. Already in the first album “Tintin in the Land of the Soviets”, he undergoes some aeronautical adventures.

Not only did Hergé depict aircraft in an extremely accurate, detailed way, it is only interesting to see how aircraft-making was fast evolving during the several decades that Tintin’s books span: from very basic propeller aircraft to a Boeing 747 in the latest album, “Tintin and the Picaros”.

All of this is explained over 800m of displays (organized in cooperation with the Musée Hergé (“Hergé Museum”) plus a cycle of conferences and activities designed to entertain the children.

Entry is included with Aeroscopia regular ticket (€12.5 per person)
