Moomin Museum

Moomins on Stage – Guided tour

During the guided tour at the museum, you will learn all about the different stage renditions that have been made based on Tove Jansson’s beloved Moomin books both in Finland and abroad – theatre, opera, ballet…

The first theatrical adaptation of the books was created by Jansson herself for the Swedish Theatre in Helsinki in 1949, only a few years after the first Moomin book was published. Since then the Moomin stories have been adapted into operas, ballets, plays and puppet shows, most recently a ballet by the Finnish National Ballet.
