Winter holiday programme
The Moomin Museum celebrates the winter holidays during weeks 8 and 9. There is a guided tour for museum visitors every day at 1 pm (except Mondays). Come and join the Moomin adventures!
Winter holiday in the Studio
During the winter break at the Moomin Museum's Studio, we delve into the mysterious scraperboard technique, known from the beloved illustrations of the book 'Moominland Midwinter.' What would your winter drawing look like? You can play in the enchanting world of lights and shadows by scraping your own atmospheric masterpiece.
The Studio is open all day during weeks 8 and 9, welcome!
Events in the museum
Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was not only an author and illustrator, but also a painter, cartoonist and comic strip artist. In addition to authoring Moomin books, she also published novels and collections of short stories. Today she is known around the world as the beloved creator of the Moomins. The Moomin Museum is based on the collection of illustration art donated by her.
Moomin House - our pride and joy
On the lower level of the museum, you’ll find our centrepiece exhibit: a five-storey, over two-metre-tall tableaux of the Moomin House. The enchantingly detailed model was crafted by Tuulikki Pietilä, Dr Pentti Eistola, and Tove Jansson, taking them three years to build. It was unveiled at the Bratislava Biennial of Illustration in 1979, after which it toured the Nordic countries. Today it is a permanent exhibit that can be seen only at the Moomin Museum.
