With our third meeting we decided to visit the Moomin museum. I was really excited, because the Moomins were definitely a part of my childhood. I always watched the tv show when I was younger.
The museum was really nice. You could grab a book at the entrance and the book was basically your guide. This was a good way of exploring a museum in my opinion. Elisa grabbed a Finnish book and I grabbed an English one and together we explored the museum. Elisa knew a lot more then I did, because she has read all of the books and I haven’t read them. This was good for me, because she was my second guide.
Another thing I really liked about the museum was the fact that a lot of scenes out of the books where created in an exhibition piece. Because of the books really came to live. It was also fun to hear the stories and looking at the exhibition piece at the same time.
The best piece in my opinion was the Moominhouse. There was one really big exhibition piece and that was a replica of the Moominhouse. This piece is absolutely beautiful, and the details are amazing. It felt like exploring a giant doll house.
Elisa and I both grew up with the Moomins, that’s why we decided to teach each other the names of the characters in our mother tongue. In the following picture you can most of the characters with their Finnish and Dutch name.
We also did both a test called: Which Moomin character are you? You can do the test over here: https://www.moomin.com/en/which-moomin-are-you/
According to the test I’m Moomintroll.
It was a really nostalgic day for us! It was awesome. If you are in Tampere, I recommend you to definitely visit the Moomin museum!
