This museum offers a number of interesting displays and is not too big. We particularly enjoyed the Tove Jansson section, including some Moomin pictures. Tip: free on the last Friday of each month

As a huge Tove Jansson fan I went here specifically as they have a permanent Tove exhibition. Unfortunately it was a lot smaller than I had expected, beautiful work and it was a nice touch to see the restorer working in the exhibit in person.

Visited the Yayoi Kusama exhibition which was weird and wonderful! Had a great time in the large exhibition spaces taking in the artwork. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit!
