    Magical Moomin Museum!
    As part of our honeymoon to Finland, me and my husband visited the Moomin Museum because I’m a huge fan!! We absolutely loved it here and it was so lovely to learn more about the history and also see some of Tove Jansson’s original artwork and tableau’s she and her partner built. As it’s the only Moomin Museum, it’s a must for Moomin fans and it’s reasonably priced too!

    Moomins are awesome
    Amazing museum. You will learn so much about the Moomins and see some awesome art work and models. Guide books available in several languages. This is 100% a must if you visit Tampere and not too expensive.

    A Moominous Experience
    A fascinating look into the Moomin world. This museum is amazing. It’s well laid out, taking you thru the books in chronological order with original artwork and displays. You are given a guide book when you enter as a supplement, giving you additional background. This was a wonderful visit and it’s very easy get to Tampere from Helsinki, via a high speed train.

    Waited a lifetime,was so worth it
    We finally made it here on a bitterly cold January day and it was a delight. I will be sixty years old tomorrow and I still have my original Tove Jansson moomin books,so it was a dream come true. Everything was perfect,a small exhibition on the top floor and a huge area below with so many detailed line drawings, various tableaux which were so evocative and so many interactive displays. It was hard not to be overwhelmed but I looked at everything and was thoroughly charmed. Highly recommended.

    Great museum, especially for kids
    It's always nice to go to moomin museum, especially for the kids. Usually going once there is enough, but there are own creativity rooms and they also offer different things, depending on each month, which is pretty nice. They also have some interactive things. But don't expect too much, yet this is a museum and about moomin and history. But it is nice there, and also relaxing.

    Beautiful even if a bit dark
    I loved our visit to the Moomin museum! I especially enjoyed Tuulikki Pietilä's miniature art based on Tove Jansson's stories. They were truly beautifully detailed. Our 4-year-old daughter was slightly frightened by some parts of the museum because the lighting is very dark. Our favourite bits were the miniatures and the giant version of The Book about Moomin, Mymble and Little My. Well worth the money to visit.

Far more immersive, inspiring, and wondrous than I was anticipating.
The minuture scenes from each Moomin troll story are intricately and beautifully made and absolutely bring the world of the Moomin to life in the most magical way.
A once in a lifetime experience and well worth the train journey from Helsinki to Tampere for the day. I would 100% recommend to any Moomin lover.

The collection consisted of Toove's drawings, books and a miniature of the moomin house. Perhaps children would enjoy it more.

While the museum is designed and operated as a five star museum (lots of interaction, modern equipment and well thought design) the subject itself is hard to display. Sure, there are a lot of original paintings and a lot of interactive tablets to press and read about Tove Janson and The Moomins, but it isnät enough for me. There is a lot of large scale puppet displays of scenes from the book which is fun, but I had a hard time to motivate these models since its really just something built for the museum more or less. This was my fourth visit to Tampere and I gave in to the recommendations and went there. I don't regret it but I could easily waited a few visits more bofore going. The gift shop outside the museum is great however, but that one you can visit without a ticket. No photo policy in the museum.
