The museum is different from any other museum on books/characters from books. Besides nice drawings from the different books, you can delight with the dioramas taken from the histories. Really beautiful, both for kids and adults, specially if this was part of your childhood. Allow...More

The original artwork and stories of Moomin creator Tove Jansson. The model houses and scenes she created with her partner are full of detail. There is a Moomin Museum app that you can download before your visit.
