“Always fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Alhtough far from the city centre it is worth the visit if you are into Arabia / Ittaala / Fiskars products and the occasional bargain. Sometimes you will find better deals in the local Anttila..

“Unique in originality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Arabia tools are one of the unique home utility tools that you find in almost every Finnish home. It is expensive. Visiting the factory give one a rare opportunity to see the wonderful designs on display and the work that goes on in there. A guided tour is recommended if available.
