The exhibition will be the first major Moomin exhibition in the UK, and will explore the fantastical world of the Moomins through the life of their creator, Tove Jansson. Rare, archived objects and illustrations will form part of the exhibition, giving guests an intimate insight into Jansson's life and work. In addition, it will feature experiential elements, as visitors are led through seven immersive and interactive worlds via an audio narrative. The different worlds will explore the influence that the Nordic landscape had on the Moomins' habitat, including Moominvalley and a canvas tent on the water’s edge in Finland. The exhibition will also feature a recreation of Jansson’s art studio and her island of Klovharu.
