LGBTQIA friendly

Like Moomin House, everyone is welcome at the Moomin Museum! We want to provide our customers with the safest, most enjoyable and accessible museum experience possible. Everyone can safely and proudly be themselves with us, and neither gender nor gender expression will affect a friendly encounter. We also value equality and diversity in our working community.

The Moomin Museum is based on the collection of illustration art donated by Tove Jansson (1914–2001). Jansson is best known for her Moomin characters, but she was a bold trailblazer in her own right, both as an artist and as a person and woman. The core themes in Jansson’s Moomin books as well as in the Moomin Museum revolve around friendship, understanding diversity and enjoying life’s small and big adventures. If you want to learn more or add fun to your visit, book a guided tour or a workshop, that are available in different languages.

We are a member of the We Speak Gay community and are involved in building Finland into the most LGBTQIA friendly country in the world!
