The Mauri Kunnas exhibition has something to see and experience for the whole family!

If you are visiting the exhibition with children, you can delve into the colourful world of Kunnas by playing in settings that are familiar from his books. Why not try the life of a pirate or see one of the most important tools of Santa Claus. Take a nice break from playing in the reading crater, and immerse yourself in Kunnas’ books surrounded by the planets of our solar system.

For the most enthusiastic fans of the beloved author, the exhibition rooms offer a glimpse into the personal story of Kunnas as well as the creation process of his books. The works on display include detailed pencil sketches and colourful aquarelle sketches.

We hope that a visit to the exhibition will inspire you to grab a book by Mauri Kunnas full of varied details and exciting stories!
