“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The best thing about the library is the Moomin Museum and the Mineral museum which is absolutely fascinating. If you like rocks and minerals this extensive collection will interest and intrigue for hours........I spent four hours in this museum alone. The displays are fabulous.

“Need a book?”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

From Metso you can borrow wild range of books or read them in the library itself.

There is also a coffee place in the second floor and a Moomin museum downstairs.

“Love libraries”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I haven't really been there as a tourist... It's a nice and cozy place, the building is cool... There's usually something to see upstairs, and the Moomin Museum is in the same building.
