This kind of gallery is in former publisher house, named Weilin&Göss,, that is why the name is what it is. I was there with my granddaughter and we enjoyed this place very much. Colorful exhibition and very friendly shop.

In old factory there are several intresting museums, like toy, clock, ethnic, art museums with permanent and changing exhibitions. Much to see and explore. If you have limited amount of time to spend time here everyone can easily prioritize his own targets of interest here.

The Exhibition center always has an art exhibition but also has a very nice restaurant which serves an organic, wholesome Brunch at affordable prices. Its a nice little trip for a saturday or sunday.

Great modern art museum in a beautiful setting. We took the train to Lepavaara and took a taxi to the museum for about 15 euro. Enjoyed the Futuro house as well as the modern art exhibitions, which featured many young, cutting edge Finnish artists.
