What Happens Next?

Where did the ancestors of the Moomins live? What was Moominpappa’s stormy youth like? What do Hattifatteners do during a thunderstorm? These and many other secrets are revealed in What Happens Next?.

The Moomin Museum’s first permanent exhibition retells the entire story of the Moomins, starting from the Great Flood and the mad midsummer’s floating theatre to the puzzle of the lighthouse and the mysterious disappearance of the Moomins one grey November day.
