Junibacken was established in 1996. The idea was developed by actor Staffan Götestam, who always found museums boring as a child. He had a vision to builda children’s museum that was anything but ordinary – something playful and interactive. He shared his thoughts with the late Astrid Lindgren, whose work he admired and wanted to incorporate and showcase. She agreed, but on the condition that other writers and creators were involved as well. This year, Junibacken hosts an exclusive exhibition about Moomin and his family. “It feels very special to be able to offer a setting here at Junibacken based on the celebrated works by one of our biggest artists, Tove Jansson.
