In the autumn of 2023, an unprecedented exhibition devoted to the most famous Belgian comic strip characters will be held at Tour & Taxis in Brussels: TINTIN / KUIFJE, THE IMMERSIVE ADVENTURE. The fruit of a close collaboration between Culturespaces and Tintinimaginatio, the event was a huge success in Paris in 2022.
The transfer from paper to digital is but a short step, which the two partners decided to take by combining their expertise. Tintinimaginatio, the exclusive holder of the world rights for the exploitation and representation of Hergé’s work, is collaborating with Culturespaces, a pioneer in the production of immersive exhibitions that are unique in the world.
Extending over a 1,600 m² projection surface, the digital creation will enable children and adults to immerse themselves in the world of Tintin.
From the first edition of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets in 1929 to the most recent editions, Tintin, the Immersive Adventure honours the famous reporter with the quiff, the great traveller whose adventures around the world have been an integral part of popular culture for almost one hundred years.
It promises to be a unique and immersive re-reading of Hergé’s work, Tintin, the Immersive Adventure 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.
This event 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.
Meet on 27 September 2023 - 77 years after the creation of the Tintin newspaper - at the Tour & Taxis site to discover this colourful aesthetic experience.

immersive creation opens with the famous covers of all the albums in The Adventures of Tintin, gradually coming to life before our very eyes. The clear line of the famous reporter and his faithful companion Snowy will evolve over the albums, first in black and white in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, then rapidly in colour with The Shooting Star.
Tintin is above all a great reporter. Our young hero takes the visitor along with him, traveling thousands of kilometers and using all means of transportation on land, air and even under the sea with the famous bathyscaphe, a shark-shaped submarine.
Regardless of the adventure, who would be Tintin without his faithful friends? There is Snowy, his most faithful companion, as well as Captain Haddock and his fiery temper, Professor Calculus as a dizzy genius, the clumsy policemen Thomson and Thompson, among many others.
Tintin and allies must also thwart the plans of unscrupulous characters such as the dreadful Rastapopoulos, the vile Mitsuhirato or the terrifying Rascar Capac who plunges the visitors into a collective hallucination. We see strange creatures of the Cigars of the Pharaoh, mirages of black gold, gigantic mushrooms of The Shooting Star...
Constantly pursued, our heroes take the visitors in a rocket going to the Moon, in the jungle of the Picaros and in the cabin of flight 714. Tintin and his faithful friends happily emerge victorious and always celebrate the triumphant end of their adventures.
Tintin, the Immersive Adventure ends on the famous blue endpapers of the Adventures of Tintin albums, before giving way to Hergé drawing his favourite character one last time.
