The Night of the Museums takes place on Saturday May 20th in Tampere

During the Night of the Museums on Saturday 20 May the Moomin Museum as well as several other museums are open from 6 pm until midnight. In addition to the interesting exhibitions, we also offer special programme during the night.

Tampere regional transport has two buses driving the Night of the Museums-line – marked with a orange line on the map – from 6pm to 10.30pm. The first bus starts from the Museum Centre Vapriikki at 6pm, departures approximately every 15 minutes. With the Night of the Museums entrance wristband you can travel for free by the bus between the attractions, and the closest bus stop is marked after each attraction. Unfortunately the Moomin Museum, number 21 on the map, is not quite on the bus line but well within walking distance.

The Night of the Museums in Tampere is part of the Central European La Nuit des Musées/ Lange Nacht der Museen museum events.
