tintin in france






Mr. Fleurishing and I finally rented The Adventures of Tintin…not only did we enjoy it, but memories came rushing back of my second trip to France. My brother has been a huge fan of the comic since childhood, and has quite an impressive collection. So, when visiting him in 2006, we combined a tour of Cheverny with the Tintin museum on the grounds! I was excited to learn that the beautiful chateau was the model for Captain Haddock’s country estate, and every time I see it in comic form I am reminded of the beauty. The museum is full of fun, with vignettes of Tintin’s desk, closet and costumes, storyboards, and a room that simulates a scary storm-we all really enjoyed it, and it is a great place to take children! My brother captured a favorite photo of my Mom and I on the grounds…it was a special day for everyone. 





  1. What wonderful memories of that day with your brother and you. Chateau had gorgeous furnishings, and the museum was fun and clever. Like the choice of photo memories. Mom
