If you are in Turku with small children, the library offers a good option for rainy days or a moment of quiet during the day: a few years ago Turku built a new main library. It has quite cool little feature in the children’s section: exhibitions for children. The other week we just missed the My Little Pony one to daughter’s big disappointment. It had been replaced by a Moomin one:
On top of the little exhibition my kids had fun looking for the little windows in the floor and in the book shelves. They each had some story characters or settings portrayed such as fairy worlds, elves, mice etc. Sorry, the pictures suck but I didn’t have too much time when trying to keep two excited little ones from running and shouting when looking for familiar characters, after all, we were in a library. But the play area was pretty good too, so we’ll be back!
