The first floor of the Moomin&Me is more like Moomin shop, and the second and third floors are for restaurant and café. On the first basement there is an indoor theme park with photo zones, the walls decorated with photos from the Moomin novels to make people feel they are in Moominvalley. On the second basement level, there is a Moomin theatre showing Moomin animation and movie for children.
