Mille sabords!

From march 21 to november 12, 2001. The Musée National de la Marine and the Hergé Foundation present a vast exhibit at the Musée de la Marine at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris.

The Exhibit

The exhibit is produced by the Muséee National de la Marine, in collaboration with the Hergé Foundation. A large area on the ground floor of the Palais de Chaillot is dedicated to the installation. Through the display of originals (objects, models and drawings) that Hergé used to give his works their great level of authenticity, several central episodes of the adventures of Tintin and Haddock are recounted.


Mille Sabords ! The famous French swearword (Blistering Barnacles ! in the English adventures) spreads in huge letters across what could be the haul of a ship. The visitor is invited to enter… As they walk along, the visitors become spectators and discover how the master of the “ligne claire” has progressively embraced the marine world. It’s also where the great friendship between two men is unveiled. (…) I have developed a very special tenderness for Captain Haddock, Hergé confided, because he his the most colorful, the most spirited, the one with the most flaws, the most spontaneous, I would say the truest, that’s it ! (…)

An Exhibit for the family

Many activities are proposed to the young and adults alike. The museum greatly values the presence of children and parents to live this original experience together, accompanied by the characters of the adventures of Tintin. Discovering or rediscovering the marine world of the famous albums, comparing the objects of the museum with their graphic interpretation, this is, like Tintin, following a fascinating trail leading to travel, observation, deduction and resolution of the riddle which makes our extraordinary hero so famous all around the world.
