Chanouga and the White Aborigine, a discovery of the history of Narcisse Pelletier in comics!

From the 1 in July to the 7 in April 2018, the Museum of the Marine of Toulon honors the work of a young cartoonist, Chanouga, who is interested in an incredible - but true - story by Narcisse Pelletier. This young moss of the nineteenth century survives a shipwreck and is then abandoned by his captain on the wild coast of northeastern Australia. Collected by the Aborigines, he lived with them for 17 years, immersed in their culture completely, before being forcibly brought back to civilization by English sailors, surprised to find in front of them a "white savage".

The museum has the pleasure of presenting the comic strips "Narcissus" of Chanouga which relate this uncommon destiny. One of the rooms immerses the visitor in the universe of Chanouga and Narcisse. There are also original plates of the author.

Guided tours, mixing permanent collections and the Chanouga area, are adapted to different levels:
