I have many fond memories of watching the Moomins as a child so I guess you could call me somewhat a Moomin fan. That´s maybe part of a reason why I found the Museum really interesting and felt that it opened up new aspects to the stories told in the Moomin books. Would definitely recommend!

Haven't seen any other museum like it. Most contents were Tove's drawings and some miniatures. My favorite piece was the big moomin house model.

Great place to visit, brings back memories from my childhood when watching the program on TV, all the old books are in there and all the prop’s from the making of the programme definitely worth a visit

A magical place for every Moomin fan, and even not just fans.... It's a pure pleasure and is made so you feel you're actually inside the stories. Highly recommended!

A unique museum for moomin fans! We got to know more about the books, the illustrations and of course Tove Jansson. We were positively surprised to see the miniature house that the author and her partner made.

This museum is located in the Tampere Hall. It takes visitors on a magical journey into the fairy-tale world of the original Moomin illustrations by Tove Jansson.

The interior is quite dark. I have never been a Moomin fan and our visit was quite quick.

Tampere Hall also houses an international Moomin reading library and a gift shop with Moomin products.

Nice big and modern museum showcasing Moomins history. Visually exhibition is great offering some nice technical tricks and eye candy. There are many fantastic original miniature constructions of these tales. You can get most out of it if you have read the books and now some background. Audio info is greatly available at FI, SE, EN, RU, JP and written texts are in Finnish and English. Photos are forbidden.

Museum was crowded and bit restless because of all families and small kids. Ticket price is bit high if you are not into Moomins. You can leave and enter museum 6 hours with tickets. Tampere talo has cafe and Sorsapuisto park outside offers nice exhibition of different species of hens and lawn areas to relax.

The museum is full of black and white Moomin drafts and quite a few miniature models from the world of Moomins. However, our five year old child found the museum quite boring. Black and white sketches were surely uninspiring for her (and usually too high anyway) and all the miniature models were behind a glass. There was not a playground of any kind for small children, just a couple of spots with something to do. Half an hour was enough for us.
