Immerse yourself in the world of Tintin, Belgium’s most famous red-haired reporter. From 27 September at Tour & Taxis, an unprecedented exhibition allows young and old ‘from 7 to 77’, to (re)immerse themselves in the creative and fictional universe of one of the greatest comic strip authors of the 20th century.

Tintin, the Immersive Adventure, features the entire ‘paper family’ of the famous saga. Tintin, Snowy, and the faithful ‘close guard’ formed by Captain Haddock the Thom(p)sons, Professor Calculus, Castafiore and many others. Not forgetting, of course, the unpleasant – but oh so unavoidable – villains.

Extending over 1600m², the digital creation conjures Tintin into life from his black-and-white beginnings in 1929 (Tintin in the Land of the Soviets) and over the course of eight ‘chapters’ brings his friends and enemies to life. Take a trip to the moon in the famous red and white rocket, or get lost in the jungle of the Picaros. 

It will surely be a trip down memory lane for many, igniting the desire to re-read the comic books of our youth. 

A specially-curated soundtrack featuring Iggy Pop, the Beatles, David Bowie and Jacques Brel will have you humming along as you follow our intrepid reporter on land, air and even under the sea.

Tintin, the Immersive Adventure is the latest production from Culturespaces, a pioneer in the creation of digital art centres and immersive experiences. Previous shows include Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Nights’ and Gustav Klimt’s ‘Gold in Motion’, bringing art classics to life for a new audience. 

They collaborate with Tintinimaginatio, the exclusive holder of the world rights for the exploitation and representation of Hergé’s work.

The exhibition runs every day of the week, until 7 January 2024.
