This is a very interesting museum of contemporary art. Always interesting exhibitions. This time surrealist art of Meret Oppenheim. Also a new exhibition of Wirkkala and Bryk. Great! Museum's basic Saastamoinen Collection is also fine.

Wirkkala & Bryk walk-in warehouse collection was impressive. Especially Wirkkala manages to catch true piece of Finnish soul. Modern art exhibition was nicely set (though I'm not a great fan of modern art).

I visited first time at EMMA&WeeGee at Wirkkala & Bryk exhibition opening. It is a unique extension to normal museum, as exhibition is partly a storage room. Wirkkala is one of the designers who have left largest recollection into life of Finns with his designs....More
