My family has the habit to visit this place several times per year, and we always enjoy it. Her you'll find the masterpieces of contemporary local and international artists and periodical exhibitions. In the building, we have several museums (The Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenkä is a permanent favorite for my daughter) and Deli+Café is just great!

The latest exhibition of ceramic artist Rut Bryk was a something special, unique artist in Finland. The location of the museum is not the best possible and... More

Depending on what they have on that day of course. The exhibition change time to time. Not necessarily a place to visit if you spend only few days in... More

This was a family visit. EMMA consists of several museums all accessible with a single fee. Astonishing collection. Allow 4 to 8 hours. Good cafe restaurant on site, serves lunch.

One shouls definitely visit EMMA when in Espoo. The concrete building (ex print house) is really charming and the exhibitions are always well organized. Remember to visit the UFO house outside :) Only the cafe should be better
