Episode 1: I lived in a museum

In the first episode Jenny Didrichsen, the granddaughter of museum founders Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen tells the story of the founding of the museum, the building of its impressive collection, and how a series of unanticipated events led to its creation.

 

The museum is the first home that I remember having lived in and it holds a very special place in my heart. I wanted to share this story in memory of my grandparents and to honour the legacy they left behind.

Episode 2: Tove Jansson, more than the creator of Moomin

To the world, Tove Jansson is mostly known as the creator of the famous Moomin characters, but she saw herself first and foremost as a painter. Our newly launched podcast episode reveals fascinating, emotional and heartwarming stories from both her diverse professional and personal life. Her niece, Sophia Jansson, will take you on a journey from summertime magic in the Finnish archipelago with velvet rock pools and treeless islands to topics touching on Tove's incredible courage to be true to herself at a time when it was not always easy to be a woman in the creative field.
