That was great. The exposition on 2 floors, represents puppet scenes from 12 books by Tuva Jansson about Mumkov, and also drawings of the author. Some scenes are even accompanied by audio fragments, including Russian. There are chairs-"stones" and ordinary chairs, where you can relax. Most of all the child liked the magician's hat, barely took away from it.
Great place for kids! Lots of interesting stuff for adults also. The extensive collection of sketches and drawings of Moomin chraracters are a must see for any comic enthusiast.
Really nice museum, both we that remember the stories from our childhood and small kids will enjoy this. Lots of nice models of the Moomin family and it's neighbourhood referriing to the stories. The museum has lot of interactivity which the kids will love, btw I loved it too.
