Pop up Moomin museum at the Helsinki Airport

In the beginning of June opened a pop up Moomin museum in terminal 2 at Helsinki Airport in Finland. Pop up museum promotes the new Moomin museum opening in Tampere in 2017.

In 1986, Tove Jansson donated a collection of more than 2000 works to Tampere Art Museum and part of the collection has been on display in Tampere Art Museum Moominvalley. Moominvalley at Tampere Art Museum will close at the end of October 2016 and the collection will be conservated and moved to the new premises. Tove Jansson’s unique collection will be presented in a modern, experiential and multisensory way in the world’s only Moomin Museum.

Pop up museum at the airport features for example prints of Tove Jansson’s Moominsummer Madness illustrations as well as a moving box – by peeking inside the box you see a glimpse of the Moomin museum opening in 2017.
