Loan requests

Tampere Art Museum occasionally accepts loan requests for small numbers of artworks from the Moomin Museum collection to museum exhibitions abroad.

We are not accepting loan requests for Moomin illustrations until 2025. The majority of the collection is resting after being displayed in the museum’s permanent exhibition and the touring exhibition The Art of Moomin in Japan.

Loan requests must be made at least 12 months before the planned exhibition. The loan period is six months at most. Artworks from the collection can only be lent outside of Finland. We only accept loan requests from museums and organisations with trained museum staff, and with exhibition spaces that meet museum standards.

We do not loan the three-dimensional tableaux or the Paraphernalia collection.

For any questions about collection loans, please contact:
