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.

There are some pieces of the old Espoo's history. But the main attractions are the changing exhibitions. So check beforehand on the website, whether there is something that interests you. The building is an old printing house and all the surfaces are pure concrete without any cover.

Emma is a museum of modern art that often takes you by suprise. Very modern the way that almost everything is accepted from serious art to playful experimental works.

The architecture of the museum is quite suitable for showing the modern arts. It's a big venue and worthy for visiting.

It's an interesting museum, but it's not easy to reach by train from Helsinki as it is written in some tourist guides. One evening per week the entrance is free.

If you are in Tapiola area in Espoo- or even in Helsinki for that matter- and you love art - then please, visit this museum. It used to be a printing house but this pure concrete architecture somehow takes you to "New York" . The basic collection iitself is worth seeing but there are other exhibitions, too. The cafeteria and... More
