Tintin Imaginary museum Collection

Inspired by the illustration Hergé created for a poster advertising the 1979 "Musée Imaginaire de Tintin" exhibition.

In June 1979 a major exhibition (that later traveled to different locations) was inaugurated at the Palais des Beau-Arts in Brussels. Hergé was not aware of the full catalog but the organizers of the exhibition explained that the purpose was to compare the legendary objects Tintin comes across and collects throughout his adventures with the real-life objects that inspired them.

On the exhibition poster, Hergé depicted his characters visiting an imaginary exhibition that would drive Tintin fans wild.”
