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.

  • Interesting exhibition of Manga art. The manga was unfamiliar with its more in-depth content. The Japanese will appreciate the sutaisuja over everything. The museum downstairs had manga outfits and the stories of Finnish mangators. As a whole, a pretty interesting nättely!

  • Basement and 1st floor exhibitions were really good July 2019
  • The best curated place of art in Tampere. There are usually three exhibits. One in the basement with ample uniform space, one on the ground floor with four rooms and the large exhibit space above them with dual wings. Exhibits change regularly, are curated and presented expertly and there usually aren't too many people present so you can enjoy the experience with your own pace. I really enjoy the feel and relative closeness with art and interpretations you can achieve here. The museum building was drawn as a granary which by its design tells a lot about the guality of esthetics of the time.
