There are 6 different exhibitions, each with a different theme\focus. As the museum is quite large, and as certain works take quite a lot of time to process and take in, so to say, I would recommend coming to this place at least thrice in order to be able to take the time to see all the exhibitions comfortably, without...

I really like this museum - have been here a few times. The main collection of the museum is very interesting, and there are also some changing exhibitions. Under the same roof you can find a toy museum, Espoo city museum as well as some other museums. There is also a cafeteria and a museum shop. If you visit all... More

There are 5-6 exhibitions there, like clock, toys, modern arts. We were attracted by the yellow "submarine" and decided to spend an afternoon there. But, the exhibitions were not so attractive for us personally and we were there for 2 hours only.

EMMA is very interesting art museum. It takes all day to look around and maybe even more. Its good place to go with family, friends or alone. Just take your time and enjoy.

Interesting exhibitions and great helpful stuff. Could spend there hours but i think few hours is the normal length of the visit. You can either walk around by yourself or take part in guided tours.

EMMA is the modern art museum in Espoo, and worth a visit in itself, but the same WeeGee building - a huge old factory totally renovated - houses several museums with interesting changing exhibitions. There's something for everybody, whether you are a toddler or a senior citizen or anything in-between! The modern art museum in itself is good and always... More

Permanent Saastamoinen Fund collection is quite versatile and unique but changing exhibitions are usually interesting. Old factory is quite personal surrounding for groovy art pieces.

You can see in Emma that Finland is not only Nokia. EMMA is the best modern art museum in Finland.There are also many museums in the same building, which is a former printing factory. It,s a must.

I really liked this museum - my only complaint was that we got their about an hour and half before closing and could not do the entire museum. Many one of kind presentation and interactive pieces that you will likely find no where else. The museum is well laid out and you can view many pieces without climbing any stairs!... More

EMMA is housed in a former printing factory building. Unfortunately, due to the low ceilings, this is not suitable for showing fine art. The building is limited in this way. There is very little natural light. There seems to be a permanent collection of work by local artists, much of which is mediocre at best. This would be expected in... More
