The factory shop is not too huge and can not compare with the factory outlets in other countries. But, you can buy lots of local products here and it's good.

Arabia factory store is tram ride away from the city centre. It may have interesting stuff if you are into porcelain and glass. It has some factory seconds at discounted prices but the rest of the stuff is the same you can find in the city centre store. Arabia does not, in fact, manufacture anything in Finland anymore. It comes... More

This rating is for the Street Festival that happens once a year in May (I found out about this from a food tour that I took and then followed up for more info from the 'visit Helsinki' website). This is a lively local event, with many community groups offering very reasonably priced street food (the cinnamon buns from a school... More

We came for the plates and glasses and stayed for the tableware, trays etc. Expect to spend some time if you are interested in Scandinavian design. There are a few shops which invite to brows and explore all sorts of objects. The cafe isn't bad. Had some coffee and rememberable cake there.

The Arabia factory store is totally a must-see for enthusiasts of classic Finnish design. The complex includes a restaurant, a museum, a book shop (and much more) and... the Iittala outlet. They have a huge range of products (new and well-known ones), both first- and second-class quality (although I had difficulties to find the difference). The prices are comparably cheap... More

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!
