The Tintin Museum at the Château de Cheverny

  • distance : 26km

Hergé, the author of the legendary comic book series Tintin, modeled his hero's palatial home, Moulinsart, after this chateau, one of the most beautiful of the Loire Valley.  

Since its first appearance in the books "The Secret of the Unicorn" and "The Treasure of Rackham the Red," the chateau of Moulinsart has been a peaceful haven and the home base for Tintin and his companions.  This link inspired the Domaine de Cheverny and the Fondation Hergé to come together to create a permanent exposition called "The Secrets of Moulinsart."
