The Moomins are world famous and this museum in Tampere is a must see attraction.
The museum is based on the Moomin books by Tove Jansson. So far, they have been translated into over 40 languages. These books fascinate adults and children alike.
You will find the original Moomin illustrations by Tove Jansson are an essential part of the atmosphere of the museum, and the three-dimensional tableaux built by Tuulikki Pietilä.
These are adding to our own picture of the goings-on in the Moomin stories. The gem of the collection is a blue five-storey Moomin House that is as exceptional as its residents — and its builders, Tuulikki Pietilä, Pentti Eistola and Tove Jansson.
Wisdom, humour, a healthy love of adventure and warm geniality have made the Moomin books speak across language barriers. That same atmosphere can also be felt at the museum. The exhibit is being renovated, respecting the life’s work of Tove Jansson.
