Moomin waymark instructions:


Try to find Moomin characters in permanent and public locations only. For example Moomin statues, Moomin parks, moomin shops, Moomin museums, other Moomin themed locations, Moomin murals, Moomin paintings, Moomin signs, Moomin plaques, Moomin model displays (miniature etc.), Moomin boats or planes or even street art like stencils and graffiti will apply as a waymark. Outside of Finland also shops and public buildings will apply as a Moomin waymark if Moomin items (toys, books, mugs, fabrics etc.) are regularily or permanently sold or just seen there and you are allowd to take picture from moomins there. These locations are here to promote the knowledge of moomins in area where they are not seen otherwise. So look closely!



Yritä löytää muumeja ainoastaan pysyvistä ja julkisista paikoista. Waymarkit voivat olla Muumipatsaita, Muumiaiheisia seinä seinämaalauksia, Muumikylttejä ja -laattoja, Muumikauppoja ja -puistoja, Muumiaiheisia pienoismalleja, Muumein koristeltuja lentokoneita tai laivoja ja Muumiaiheista katutaidetta kuten graffitteja ja sabluunamaalauksia. Suomen ulkopuolelta hyväksytään myös ne kaupat ja muut julkiset rakennukset, joiden valikoimista löytyy vakituisesti muumi aiheisia tuotteita kuten leluja, mukeja, kirjoja, kankaita jne ja saat luvan ottaa muumikohteesta kuvan. Näiden paikkojen tarkoituksena on edistää Muumien tuntemusta maissa, joissa niitä ei vielä hyvin tunneta. Ole tarkkana!
