EMMA is located in former printing factory and is well suited for modern art exhibitions. EMMA presents both Finnish and international changing exhibitions of contemporary and 20th centry art as well as it displays its own collections

The grownups enjoyed the Futuro house and the other shows. The kids had lots of fun in the toy museum. The cafe had a basic selection, something for everyone. Worth a visit!

The museum is very interesting with exhibitions of different themes. There are exhibitions of modern arts, but also entertaining workshops for children. I was interested in the collection of Finnish artists Tapio Wirkkala and Ruth Bryk.

We visited again this summer after a few years and were very pleasantly surprised. We found especially the Espoo history part very interesting, because we´ve lived here a long time. The modern art upstairs was also very good. If you are 70 years of older you go free!

Alot to see, the shows are spacious, easy to access and a nice cafe with brunch, salads, wines even. We went accidentally on a day when there was no entrance fee, which was nice. Not crowded so easy to walk around.
