On the occasion of Captain Haddock's 80th birthday, the second bronze illustrating his meeting with Tintin is exposed at the Hergé Museum.

This bronze bas-relief was sealed in May 2009, during the Tintin festival, on the facade of the Palais des Congrès (former Trade Fair) in Namur.

The plaque commemorates the third Tintin Festival, held in Namur on 8 and 9 May 2009.

Made by Andy Jacobs, it reproduces a case from the colour edition of The Crab with the Golden Claws where Tintin meets Captain Haddock for the first time.

Offered to the city of Namur by the company Moulinsart, it was inaugurated in the presence of Nick and Fanny Rodwell, Hergé's legal successors.

The original bronze is still in Namur. To mark the 80th anniversary of the famous sailor, a second plaque has been installed at the Hergé Museum next to the original drawing of the first meeting between Tintin and Haddock.
