News ~ Thursday 5th June 2003

From 5th June 2003 to 31st January 2004. The Maritime Museum at Barcelona and the Hergé Foundation present a large Exhibition with the following theme : Sea and travel as seen in the Tintin adventures.

The Exhibition

The exhibition is a co-production of Maritime Museum at Barcelona and the Hergé Foundation. The different spaces cover more than 600 sqm. Roam the seas and throw yourself into the adventure with Tintin, his friend Captain Haddock and, of course, Snowy. This is what awaits the visitor. You will be able to discover the different seas, ports, ships etc... as well as the different means of navigating through both time and space.

Plan of exhibition

The exhibition revolves around 6 separate spaces which join together. The visitor drops the moorings in the section entitled the Eastern Seas with "Cigars of the Pharoah", "The Blue Lotus", "Land of Black Gold", "Red Sea Sharks" and above-all with "Flight 714". The adventure continues in the North Seas : the seas of storms and ice such as in "The Shooting Star", enigmatic seas as in "The Black Island". Then from the Atlantic to the Pacific, we shall explore the outer limits , whether the Tintin ports exist or whether created by Hergé, they become priviliged spaces in the adventure.

Le parcours

The sea of legends : pirates and treasures. Sunken vessels and mysterious islands. All this is awaiting you in "The Secret of the Unicorn" and in "Red Rackham’s Treasure". The other seas : sea of sand in "Crab with the Golden Claws" and in "Land of Black Gold", sea of snow in "Tintin in Tibet" and sea of drakness in "Explorers on the Moon". Hergé’s ocean : Tintin is Hergé but there is more to Hergé than just the hero he has created. Hergé represents a creative ocean in which we travel like adventurers in search of the most unexpected surprises. Hergé has left us an incredible work, with multi facets which appears to be in permanent evolution. No Tintin reader would refuse to travel on this sea as it is a real privilege.
