Moomin Museum is open again after renovation work in the permanent exhibition. There is a new selection of Tove Jansson’s Moomin illustrations on display from our collection. In the Observatory you can see Ilon Wikland’s lovely fairytale illustrations best known from the books written by Astrid Lindgren.
You don’t need to book your visit on advance anymore, but we will restrict the number of customers in the museum if necessary, to secure the safety distance. We recommend wearing a mask in the museum.
We don’t arrange any guided tours or workshops for the time being.

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.

The largest-ever exhibition of Moomin art by Finnish writer and artist Tove Jansson (1914–2001) has ended in Schizuoka 14 March 2021 after touring in Japan for two years. The exhibition was among the top events in a special line-up celebrating the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan in 2019. Many of the exhibits were loans from the Moomin Museum and Moomin Characters Ltd. Read more about the tour here.
All things are so very uncertain and that's exactly what's makes me reassured.
The shop is open to museum guests and all visitors at Tampere Hall. The range includes exciting Moomin souvenirs, design and music, books written and illustrated by Tove Jansson, Tampere souvenirs, and classic Finnish design brands.

‘Well, it’ll be another nice long day tomorrow,’ said Moominmamma. ‘And it’s all yours from beginning to end. Now isn’t that a lovely thought!’
Take a seat and enjoy a quiet moment with one of Jansson’s books in the Moomin Museum Reading Room. In our Reading Room you will find Moomin books in over 20 languages, along with other books by and about Jansson. The collection features historical rarities and fresh copies of every new Moomin edition.
