An afternoon with the Moomins

Our third meeting took place at the Moomin museum in Tampere-talo. There is a free entry on last Friday of every month between 15-19. Moomins are really popular in Finland and also around the world. Last time I visited Moomin museum I was around 10 years old. The exhibition was really nice and very well executed. Sadly, due to copyright issues it’s not allowed to take pictures in Moomin museum. I recommend Moomin museum to anyone who is interested in Moomins and the story behind the books.


After visiting the museum, we named the main characters in Finnish and Dutch. Names turned out to be quite similar with each other. The Dutch ones are also similar or the same with the English names.

We also did a Moomin character test that is found on the official Moomin website:

According to the test result I am Moominpappa. I partly recognise myself of the description below and it seems that Moominpappa and myself are both quite party people!
