SHARE YOUR LOVE OF THE MOOMINS!

Our big photo contest has ended and we received over 1600 wonderful photos. Heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you!

After a difficult evaluation, the jury eventually selected Steffi La from Leipzig as the winner!
Steffi La will be awarded a four-day trip for two to Moomin Museum in Tampere. Read more at News!

The Reading Week continues and in today's photo a first-grader reads a Moomin book - Moomin comics! The theme of the week this year is to recommend one's favourite book to friends and strangers. Which is your favourite Moomin book? Which book would you recommend to other Moomin fans - or to those poor people who do not know Moomins yet? #Repost @matonennen with @repostapp ・・・ #Kahdeksanvuotiaana tiesin että turha mennä nukkumaan kun voi lukea 😍#pojatkinlukee #muumit #muumisarjakuva #moomin #booklover #lukutoukaksi 📕📗📘📙📚#ekaluokkalainen #kallerakas #moominmuseum #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #lukuviikko #lukuviikko2017 #readingweek #sarjakuva #comics #moomincomics #instabook #bookstagram #lukukeskus

The gouache from Dangerous Journey is getting ready for the new exhibition! It is amazing how different the illustration looks with a passe-partout. The passe-partout (or mount) is put between the artwork and the frame. There're few reasons for that. The passe-partout protects the painting by preventing it from touching the glass. It also frames the painting: Tove Jansson's handwritten notes below the painting instructed the printing house to crop the painting for the book and with these same instructions it is easy to cut the passe-partout of exactly right size. And in the end: a passe-partout enhances the visual appeal of the artwork. With this one the blue colour frames the illustration beautifully and enhances the colours and the atmosphere of the painting. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumit #illustration #illustrator #dangerousjourney #gouache #conservation #framing #museumtechnician #passepartout #kuvitus #kuvittaja #vaarallinenmatka #guassi #konservointi #kehystys
A detail of an illustration from the book Dangerous Journey. When an illustration is an conservators desk, one is able to see so much more than when the artwork is framed. Under the gouache are Tove Jansson's handwritten notes and markings which tell the printing house how to use the illustration, for example that the cropping of the lower edge must be as tight as possible and that the illustration must be reduced. Also there're also markings how to crop it for the book. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #illustration #illustrator #dangerousjourney #gouache #conservation #muumimuseo #muumi #kuvitus #kuvittaja #vaarallinenmatka #guassi #konservointi

Wow! Forty four (44!) new Moomin books in Japanese for the Moomin Museum Reading Library! We thank sincerely Kodansha, the publisher of the books! We're very grateful to receive such donations! As soon as possible the new books will be arranged on the shelves of the library, so be prepared to come and read them, all of you who can Japanese or want to practise it. To study Japanese from Moomin books would be nice!

Went to see a gig yesterday and also found my favourites: the #moomins. And Hattifattens! The new Moomin Museum opens in Tampere-talo in June. #moomin #moominmuseum #tamperetalo #tamperehall #tampere #comingsoon #muumit #muumimuseo
After vacuuming the Moomin House one has to wash the floors. Riina Ousukainen, our other conservator making all tableaux ready for the new museum, has taken the task of washing the salon's floor. She does it square centimeter by square centimeter with a moistened cotton swab. It takes over 50 little pieces of cotton wool and few hours to wash one room - and there are twelve rooms. #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #muumimuseo #muumi #muumit #muumipeikko #tovejansson #tuulikkipietilä #moominhouse #muumitalo #kevätsiivous #springclean #salonki #salon #conservation #konservointi
Spring cleaning in the Moomin House! As all kitchens, also the Moomin House's kitchen has to be vacuumed every now and then. This time the careful cleaner is our conservator. The vacuum cleaner is a normal one, but it has a special nozzle with a gauze round the mouth to prevent any possible particle to get suck in. The conservator also uses the help of a little soft brush to loosen dust. For the conservating the Moomin House has been divaded into parts. First every part has to be cleaned thoroughly, starting with vacuuming. #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikko #kevätsiivous #springclean #muumitalo #moominhouse #conservation #konservointi #keittiö #kitchen
Is Moomintroll really going to open that dangerous looking door? Of course not, we're just once again observing conservator's steadily progressing work. Now there's something big under conservation: the Moomin House! It is the first 3-dimensional Moomin tableau made by Tuulikki Pietilä, Tove Jansson and their friend Pentti Eistola, and it was made in the 1970's. Behind the door is the electrical center of the house, as smart viewers can figure out by the Hattifatteners.

Den 29 april fyllde Adam 29 år. Juni och jag gjorde muminkaffe som serverades i en Stinky-mugg som han önskat sig. Jag hittade också ett Stinky-grattiskort på båten och en stor påse med en av våra favoritgodisar. Kaffet var dock inte lika gott som Juni hade förväntat sig. 😉 Det luktade ju mintchoklad. 🍫

This is how the cover illustration for the French edition of Finn Family Moomintroll was used in its original purpose - long before the moomin mug. 1st edition of the book, Moumine le Troll, was published in 1968 by Fernand Nathan. Our book treasure was owned by the author herself, Tove Jansson. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #taikurinhattu #finnfamilymoomintroll #coverart #kansitaide #moumineletroll #french #moominmug #muumimuki #arabiafinland #arabiaofficial #bookstagram #instabook #fernandnathan
From the conservator's table: The new Moomin mug's picture, the original cover for the French edition of Finn Family Moomintroll is a colourful guache. In the painting one can see most of the characters appearing in the book. In the front are Thingumy and Bob, whom the reader meets for the first time in this book when they try to hide the King's Ruby. They are alter egos for Tove Jansson and her beloved one of that time. One could think that the painting is bigger, since it has so many details, but it is actually quite small, only 12 cm high and 42 cm wide. Under the painting Tove Jansson had written some instructions for the publisher, it says e.g. Please send back when no more needed to: Tove Jansson, Ulrikaborgsg. 1. Helsinki 13. Finland, and then there's also some scale graphs for the book cover. The book with this beautiful cover was published in 1968. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumimuki #moominmug #arabiafinland #taikurinhattu #finnfamilymoomintroll #tiuhtijaviuhti #thingumyandbob #konservointi #conservation
Such a beauty! A new Moominvalley Moomin mug was made in collaboration between Arabia and Moomin Museum. The original illustration is a book cover, which Tove Jansson painted for the French edition of Finn Family Moomintroll in 1968. The Moominvalley art mug will be in presale at the Tampere Hall shop May 9th onwards and soon after that in retailers. @arabiaofficial @moominofficial #moominmuseum #moomin #muumimuseo #muumi #tovejansson #arabia #muumimuki #moominmug
Happy International Women's Day! We celebrate it with Moominmamma!

Aren't they awesome? One is able to take a close look at the Hattifatteners in the tableaux Escape from the Moominvalley with the detail photo taken by museum's photographer. Usually the artworks are in the exhibition behind the glasses or well packed in the storage. So with good documentary (photos) it is easy to reseach the Moomin tableaux and the imaginative work of Tuulikki Pietilä and Tove Jansson.

Taking Moomin photos in the Moomin Museum is not as simple as taking Moomin fan photos. First the photographer has to prepare everything (lights, backround and so on) ready in the studio and get the object in the location - usually with the help of museum technician and conservators - and with the object once more adjust the lights and other details. Then it's time for serious shooting! After which starts the work with the tens of images which means some photoshopping. But the result is definitely worth all the work! Here's the photo of Flight from Moominvalley tableau.

7/10 Extra fame and honour in our photo competition Share your love of Moomins @colleene.carter has taken a peaceful traditional portrait of Moominpappa Fauni figure. Nowadays rare and valuable Fauni figures were the first commersial Moomin figures in the 1950's. The portrait reminds of those taken by Tove Jansson's brother photographer Per Olov Jansson, who also took portraits of Moomin figures - and often in the nature. As we know from the Moomin books, forest is a natural enviroment to Moominpappa, he seems to feel comfortable in the middle of moss. It's beautiful green colour in natural light gives a perfect background to this gentleman. #Repost @colleene.carter with @repostapp ・・・ #moominmuseum #moomin #moominpappa #fauni #forest #moss #portrait #tovejansson #perolovjansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumit #muumipappa #metsä #sammal #muotokuva #moominlove
Wonderful winter weekend to all Moomin fans! 6/10 Extra fame and honour in our photo contest Share your love of Moomins. The Groke is not so popular character in Moomin photos, even though she is such an enchanting person. Luckily @eeditp took the Groke to a wintery evening walk on the iced sea - and the vehicle! Traditional Finnish winter vehicle, the kicksled! The Groke must have been ecstatic! The warm extra light makes an unusual atmosphere to the gloomy evening and brightens the red colour.

Russian moomin fan Misha Molodec has shared a lot of Moomin photos in Facebook. The jury was especially pleased with the one with Moomintroll at the railway platform. In the photo Moomintroll is positioned as a bystander. He looks backwards as waiting for someone to get off the train, someone who has been on a journey, on the contrary to Moomintroll himself. Huge railroad cars go by the whole picture area to emphasize the meaning of travelling and the empty platform underlines the loneliness of Moomintroll. The simple composition and the soft hues of the photo build a delicate sense of melancholy atmosphere familiar from Moomin books. Misha Molodec wrote: when you deeply miss someone but there is nothing you can do about it. #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikko #tovejansson #moominlove #moominlover #train #railroad #platform #travel #journey #juna #asemalaituri #rautatie #matka

Do you feel like Hemulen or do you already have everything ready for Christmas? Either way, take a pause, sit down and read Tove Jansson's short story The Fir Tree from Tales from Moominland. There you can find the real Chritmas spirit! #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #qoute #hemulen #firtree #talesfrommoominland #muumimuseo #muumi #aforismi #hemuli #kuusi #joulukuusi #näkymätönlapsijamuitakertomuksia
