What Happens Next?

Where did the ancestors of the Moomins live? What was Moominpappa’s stormy youth like? What do Hattifatteners do during a thunderstorm? These and many other secrets are revealed in What Happens Next?.

The Moomin Museum’s first permanent exhibition retells the entire story of the Moomins, starting from the Great Flood and the mad midsummer’s floating theatre to the puzzle of the lighthouse and the mysterious disappearance of the Moomins one grey November day.

In the Observatory

Our new exhibition “Moomin Animations – Thrills and Cuddles” tells about the history of Moomin animations.

Mother's Day tour on 12 May at 1pm

On Sunday we celebrate the Mother's Day in Finland. Tove Jansson once said ”without a happy childhood, I would never have become an author”. An important reason for Tove´s happy childhood was her mother Signe “Ham” Hammarsten-Jansson. Tove was so close to her mother that she created one of the most beloved Moomin characters, Moominmamma, after her. These three lifes intertwined but besides love and caring they also included sadness and jealously. On this Mother´s Day tour we walk through the Moomin stories together with Tove, Ham and Moominmamma.
