Taking pictures was sadly strictly forbidden in this museum, no doubt following orders from Moomin Characters Inc...More

Thank you for your feedback. We hope that also children find the Moomin Museum as exciting and interesting as adults do. Especially the threedimensional Moomin tableaux with small details often seem to catch the eye of the children, not to mention the secret pond on...More

Thank you Kaisa! There is so much to see that you can visit us more than once! Why not come and try our new workshop next time?

A little expensive for what it was, but if you like art, some nice insights into when and how Finnish art developed and borrowed from influences. A bit small too, but nice.
