The Moomin Museum is a brand-new, experiential art museum for art lovers and Moomin fans of all ages. The exhibits comprise a unique collection of original Moomin art donated to Tampere Art Museum by Jansson in 1986. The collection was previously on display in Tampere Art Museum’s Moominvalley from 1987 to 2016. When it was moved to its new venue in Tampere Hall, its name was officially changed to the Moomin Museum.
