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.

 Over 450 000 visitors in Finnish exhibition of Moomin art in Japan

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.
