Habi Kids 2020 – Pop up Moomin Museum: Moomins and the Sea

Let’s set sail with the Moomins! Habi Kids, the Habitare area for children and families, transforms into an exciting Moomin sea landscape in 2020. There families can, among other things, row to a lighthouse and relax on the beach in Moomin style. With the navigational chart you can find your way to the mysterious lighthouse. What’s in there?

Pop up Moomin Museum wants to turn Habi Kids into a small haven in the middle of Habitare, where children and adults alike can escape the stress for a moment. “You can take a break on the cliffs or even have a picnic”, says producer Minna Honkasalo from the Moomin Museum.

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of the first Moomin book. The Moomins love nothing better than a maritime adventure, and their creator, Tove Jansson (1914–2001), drew a lifetime of inspiration from the Baltic Sea. To celebrate this special anniversary, the Moomin Museum is participating in the #OURSEA campaign, launched by Moomin Characters and John Nurminen Foundation. Moomins and the Sea, the anniversary exhibition of the Moomin Museum is open until 31.1.2021. The aim of the #OURSEA campaign is to increase awareness of the condition of the Baltic Sea. Like the Moomins, we can all consider nature in our daily choices.
