Tampere Art Museums Moominvalley, Tampere

(3.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Home to the lovable Moomin characters, Tampere Art Museums Moominvalley 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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Tampere holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tampere Art Museums Moominvalley and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A very interesting place to visit, as Moomins are a figure and story that is familiar for us Norwegian. It was lovely to see the illustrations at the museum, and the gift shop there was also very nice...  more »
  • Entrance immediately at the counter to pay, and should I get a ticket instead of Moomin stickers. Even just seem stuck around, and could be checked particularly. It was Luc locker store empty-handed, off downstairs and spacious. Not most people hanging around and around without worrying about, you can watch. Wanted to ask since when I visited was just done interviews with staff and mention "Japanese visitors. Referring to the Moomin popularity in Japan, Japanese people come, and was talking. Certainly were many Japanese comment in the notes. Incidentally ticket counter right next to the toy there is very little really.
