This place has a lot going on. There is a tiny clock museum. There is a smallish toy museum, that has some permanent stuff and some changing displays - currently they have a Soviet themed display. There is modern art, with some quirky things, as always. There is the extensive Helinä Rautavaara personal collection of native cultural things from around... More

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.

WeeGee is one of the only man-made things in Espoo that belong to the must-see category. The building is an old printing works. Rough but atmospheric. Museums complement each other. EMMA (modern art) is the best known, but there are several other interesting ones as well, like "Helinä Rautavaara Museum" that has a nice etnographic collection, and my family's favorite... More

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.
