Tampere Art Museum, Tampere

#3 of 18 in Museums in Tampere
Home to the lovable Moomin characters, Tampere Art Museum offers fans of all ages a peek into the Moomins' world. The characters featured in Tove Jansson's books, and some of her original drawings, are on display. In fact, you'll delight in the over 2,000 pieces of Moomin artwork exhibited in the museum. A five-story Moomin house stands on site and is the highlight of the collection. The designer of the house, Tuulikki Pietilä, did not follow any architectural plan but built the house freely based on drawings by her brother Reima Pietilä. The house has toured the world and appeared in Jansson's last Moomin book, "The Unwanted Guest." The museum is located in the basement of the Tampere Art Museum, so consider combining these two attractions. Visit the Moomin shop for souvenirs and gifts decorated with the Moomin images.

Where to stay in Tampere

As Scandinavia's largest inland city, Tampere boasts all sorts of options when it comes to accommodations. Most of the city's modern hotels are clustered in the cosmopolitan area surrounding the main train station, within walking distance of many of the city's popular bars, shops, and restaurants. While they may lack character, the hotels themselves are reasonably priced for a large city. For more a more cost-effective option, opt for a smaller hotel or bed and breakfast in one of the quieter suburbs. To more closely experience Finland's natural wonders, check out the campsites just outside of town, which are significantly cheaper but with fewer amenities.
