Definetly one of the "must" places at the capital area. I liked "Helinä Rautavaara Museum". If you are interested in travel , then you would like it also! :)

WeeGee is one of the only man-made things in Espoo that belong to the must-see category.

The building is an old printing works. Rough but atmospheric.

Museums complement each other. EMMA (modern art) is the best known, but there are several other interesting ones as well, like "Helinä Rautavaara Museum" that has a nice etnographic collection, and my family's favorite - the Toy Museum.

Great modern art museum in a beautiful setting. We took the train to Lepavaara and took a taxi to the museum for about 15 euro. Enjoyed the Futuro house as well as the modern art exhibitions, which featured many young, cutting edge Finnish artists.

WeeGee Exhibition center is mostly known for “Emma”, Espoo Museum of Modern Art. The building includes also several other museums (for example toy museum). WeeGee organizes also wide range of workshops especially during the weekends or one can hold a private party at the premises. There are two museum shops that have a nice variety of goods and a nice restaurant.

In the back yard of the WeeGee there is a Futoro house – only open during the summer time.

The Weegee Exhibition Center is a huge complex originally designed as a printing house by architect Aarno Ruusuvuori. Inside the building you can find EMMA (Espoo Museum of Modern Art), KAMU (Espoo City Museum), Finnish Museum of Horology, Finnish Toy Museum, Helinä Rautavaara Museum, Gallery AARNI and Espoo School of Arts. Over 20 000 square meters contains also two little museum shops, lockers for visitors, one organic café, loads of different spaces for conferences and different interactive workshops (mostly for kids).

The exhibition center is mostly for contemporary art, but it is open to very different kinds of art pieces as well. There was loads of space and different places to experience art and museum pieces. Highlights of the visit were the little children´s toy museum and Helina Rautavaara´s collection of treasures all over the world. The staff was very friendly and organic products in the café were interesting and tasty.

It is a perfect place for art and museum lovers. Even you try to see everything pretty fast it takes hours to complete all of the exhibitions provided.

Tip: You can get inside to all of the exhibitions for free every Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
