Adventures in Moominland

Explore the internationally renowned Moomin stories through the life of its author, Tove Jansson.

a&u review:

"Following on from the Wondercrump World of Roahl Dahl, the Southbank is making a name for itself as the place to go for creative, immersive exhibitions.

Think of it as more of a walk through show than an exhibition - and don't be late for your timed ticket slot.

Groups of 12 are met by an enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide and led through a black curtained door to find themselves in a tent, complete with sandy floor, camping stove and wooden stumps as stools.

Sandi Toksvig's voice starts to bring the story of these curious creatures and their creator to life as the group scrambles and squeezes through Tove's study, a Moomin cave, a magical forest, her island home.

Achieving the balance between the story of the Moomins and Tove herself is a tricky one but in the main, it is managed brilliantly. There is enough detail and old fashioned vitrine exhibits to keep mums and dads and older kids informed and plenty of immersive Moomin magic to satisfy young adventurers from 7+. 

A totally engaging and utterly different show."
