Don't spend an hours travel time going to an "outlet" offering city prices except on a few items going out of stock.

We've been to the outlet shop and the museum several times in the last few years - so obviously we are mildly addicted to all things Arabia/Iittala - but we finally got round to going on the factory tour with the excellent and knowledgeable Ms K. - the tour was all you could wish for - explaining the history of...

Went on a Monday where the museum are 90% closed in town, including the Arabia museum. The so called Arabia factory outlet shopping arcade is not cheap at all. Perhaps I cannot judge as I know nothing about art but I would definitely not pay €99 for what it looks like just another wooden plate! Outrageous!

Don't waste your time to go there if you're looking for bargains. All except very few items are sold at full price. The selection was however good, and it might be worth the visit if you appreciate the design and just want to browse. Large range of items from Iittala, Marimekko and Fiskars, among other brands.

Take tram no. 6 out here - it's easy. The selection of Iittala homewear (and Fiskars and some other brands) is impressive and well-arranged. The prices is about 20% lower for Quality 2 - and exactly the same than in the city for Quality 1. You should only go here if you are really interested in Iittala (or Fiskars...). If... More

I'm puzzled by some of the negative reviews on this site. I have been going to the Arabia Factory Outlet for many years and, yes, sometimes, the special offers are better than other times but usually there are some very good 'finds'. In addition, there is the chance to buy seconds on many items and pay full price (no higher... More

Stay away, there are only a handful of homewares shops and they offer no discounts or clearance items. A big waste of time in a dead part of town

As long time collectors of Arabia Finland, and having read the reviews we didn't expect bargains but that is not why we went. We enjoyed the Museum which was well displayed - I suppose there wouldn't be the room to present all products over the last 100 or so years. There are other companies under the Iittala umbrella but we... More
