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.


The space for changing exhibitions – Observatory – is closed at the moment due to exhibition change.

Moomin Museum Garden Party August 11

The Moomin Museum Garden Party took place in the beautiful Sorsapuisto Park by the Tampere Hall. We all enjoyed the summer evening with garden games, picnic, soap bubbles, music and carousel. Thank you for creating a delightful evening!

Tampere Hall Shop

The shop is open to museum guests and all visitors at Tampere Hall. The range includes exciting Moomin souvenirs, design and music, books written and illustrated by Tove Jansson, Tampere souvenirs, and classic Finnish design brands.

You will additionally find hand-made crafts by Finnish designers as well as music by the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, which is also based at Tampere Hall. Here you can buy Moomin postcards and stamps and have your letters stamped with a special Moomin postmark.

‘Well, it’ll be another nice long day tomorrow,’ said Moominmamma. ‘And it’s all yours from beginning to end. Now isn’t that a lovely thought!’

Moominmamma, from Moominpappa at Sea

Take a seat and enjoy a quiet moment with one of Jansson’s books in the Moomin Museum Reading Room. In our Reading Room you will find Moomin books in over 20 languages, along with other books by and about Jansson. The collection features historical rarities and fresh copies of every new Moomin edition.
