The museum displays its collection of the 68 original Moomin mugs all the way from the 1950s up to the commemorative Tove 100 mug. The stories will be played out in the exhibition space on the mugs, on the museum walls and in the original illustrations. At the exhibition there will also be a selection of rare mugs only manufactured in sample batches, as well as tableware illustrated by the mother of all Moomins, Tove Jansson, in decades past.
