“All fun is good for the stomach,” as Moominmamma would say. The Moomins, created by Finnish illustrator and artist Tove Jansson, are a family of white, round creatures resembling a hippopotamus. Well known and loved worldwide, Moomins represent the shy and pondering nature of Finns. Through the Moomins, readers are able to learn about love, loss and friendship in a gentle way.
Get to know the inquisitive cast of characters for yourself by visiting Moominworld, a park built around the much-loved concept and world created by Jansson. Located in the sunniest town in Finland, Naantali, the park has activities for all ages, like nature trails, theatre shows, and meet and greets with Moomintroll, Sniff, Little My and all the beloved characters. The season runs from June - August, with the exception of February, when the park opens for some winter fun in the snow.
