Moomins and the Sea

This exhibition takes a look at the Moomins’ nature-loving lifestyle through a selection of Jansson’s original illustrations, featuring images of the Moomin characters embarking on adventurous sea voyages and enjoying picnics on rocky shores.

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. Echoes of her sea can be heard on the beaches of Moominvalley and in the stormy exploits of the Moomin characters. Maritime themes are woven through many Moomin tales, and the sea defines the contours of Moominvalley just as the Baltic Sea paints the outlines of Finland.

The Moomins always treat nature with respect. They eat, live, and travel in harmony with the environment. Their simple lifestyle is kind to the earth and the sea. Like the Moomins, we can all consider nature in our daily choices, and everyone can do their bit to help protect the Baltic Sea. After all, the sea is made up of many small droplets.

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of the first Moomin book. To celebrate this special anniversary, the Moomin Museum is participating in the #OURSEA campaign, launched by Moomin Characters. The aim of the campaign is to increase awareness of the condition of the Baltic Sea and raise one million euros for John Nurminen Foundation’s work to protect the Baltic Sea and its heritage. The Baltic Sea is a unique ecosystem, and it’s the only sea we have, so let’s take good care of it!
