Exhibition “Moomin Animations – Thrills and Cuddles”
Moomins, the beloved fairytale creatures living in Moominvalley and created by Finnish author Tove Jansson, are the subject of a visiting exhibition at National Children’s Museum as of September.
The exhibition displays the rich history of Moomin animations, showing how the treasured stories have evolved from the first Moomin film to premiere on TV in 1959 to the most recent, magnificent 3D animation series, Moominvalley (2019). The exhibition highlights the universal values of the Moomins, such as freedom, equality and inclusion. A program of hybrid events and workshops will be on offer, including on the production of an animation and on the composition of the Moominvalley series’ music.
In this exhibition, you can simply let the stories carry you away – stories, which fascinate people of all ages. The exhibition will be on display at National Children’s Museum from September 3, 2021 until January 9, 2022.
“Moomin Animations – Thrills and Cuddles” was developed by the Moomin Museum in Finland in collaboration with Moomin Characters Ltd. and Gutsy Animations. It is brought to the United States by the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C.
