1. THE STORY OF THE MOOMIN BOOKS
Guided tour for teens and adults
We take an in-depth look at Tove Jansson’s twelve Moomin books and share interesting facts about her life and career as a writer and illustrator.
Combining literary and artistic analysis, we highlight intriguing details about the illustrations, share stories about the making of the tableaux, and interpret excerpts from the books. The tour paints a portrait of Tove Jansson as a gifted, insightful, and warm-hearted artist. Go deeper into the same theme by taking part in one of our workshops!
2. HEMULENS AND FILLYJONKS
Fun tours for office get-togethers and other groups
The Moomin books are packed with recognizable character types, just like workplaces and other groups of acquaintances. Everyone has their own distinct personality traits and ways of reacting to situations.
Join us for a bit of fun by getting to know the Moomins. Do you have a colleague who loves rules and spreadsheets just like Hemulen? Or a workmate who is sensitive but friendly, just like Moomintroll? Do you know someone resourceful like Moominmamma, the rock everyone relies on when the going gets tough? There’s bound to be someone in your group who’s always eager to start a new (hair-brained) scheme like Moominpappa! After the tour, you might even recognize your own Moomin alter-ego!
