There is almost always something for everybody here. Art museum, toy museum, clock museum and Espoo city museum (changing exhibits).

They also have workshops and stuff I haven't been to.

This is an excellent gallery that caters to many different tastes. It is perfect for the explorer, the families, the artists and the curious!

There was so much to discover in the gallery! From the Marco Polo exhibit to the Futuro pod exhibit, you quite literally feel like you travel through the ages with lots to see and explore in each area!

You can catch either the 106 or the 110 bus over, and it is pretty direct, you will see signs for Weegee or Espoo Museum of Modern Art fairly easily, from there it is a pretty short walk from the bus stop (maybe 3-4 minutes, there are signs) but do not go early! It doesn't open until 11! I made the mistake of heading there for 9:30, and had to head back into the city center, so just make sure you check the opening times.

Either way, I am glad I made the trip back, it was absolutely excellent, and I loved it!

You can easily get there by bus. Tapiola garden city is worth visiting from the architectural point of view, some parts under work due to the metro construction. Offers a lot to see. Emma and WeeGee are worth visiting : design, the number 1st of the FUTURO house, watch and toy museum. Some great works of Tapio Wirkkala to be seen as well.

Used to be a printers, now the modern art museum in Helsinki area. Kiasma is number two - by a huge margin.
