We loved our trip to the WeeGee exhibition centre and spent around 2.5 hours visiting all of the museums/exhibitions. The kids loved the toy museum and they loved the airplane installation and played there for ages! EMMA had some thought provoking pieces and we enjoyed the Ruth Bryk exhibition very much. Best of all was the Futuro House. The member of staff there was really informative and helpful. Great space and worth a trip from the city centre (metro and a short walk).

There are four museums in WeeGee: EMMA Museum of Modern Art, The Horological museum of Finland, Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenka and KAMU (the city museum of Espoo).

You may visit "The UFO House" or officially Futuro, too. It is an elliptical plastic house designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in late 1960s. It was originally commissioned as a skiing lodge but it made headlines both in Finland and abroad. The Futuro was licensed to 25 countries and manufacture was launched in 10 countries. The Futuro is quite small: diameter 8 m, height 4 m, total weight 4,000 kg. It includes a living room (6 bed-seats and a fireplace), a bedroom for two, a kitchen and a toilet. Nowadays 65 Futuro houses remain in the world.

It is very easy to visit WeeGee from Helsinki, too. Take a metro train (the subway) to Tapiola. The walking distance from Tapiola metro station to WeeGee is only 700 meters and the route is marked with signs.

The yellow round cottage sitting on legs in the back yard of Emma museum has become a fenomen after years of neglect. Finnish architect Matti Suuronen designed it in 1968 commissioned as an easily movable, quickly heated skiing lodge, the downside being that it is quite hot in summer. As Futuro looked good in pictures in the era of moon travel it was mass produced and sold all over the world. Some of the remaining 68 houses are well documented in the small exhibition showing their location, most in the States on a map with pictures of current interior decoration.

This complex in Tapiola houses four museums into one:

KAMU – ESPOO CITY MUSEUM - this is history of Espoo, its connection to Finnish culture, early settlements, farming and industries - you are transported to back in Time in this small enclosure.

FINNISH TOY MUSEUM HEVOSENKENKÄ
A collection of tiny areas dedicated to each decade in finnish toy-play, right from 1950s stuffed horses to Lego to audio-visual toys of today.

FINNISH MUSEUM OF HOROLOGY
History of clockmaking and timekeeping since BCE - not just from Finland but from worldwide. Tower clocks, turret clocks, pocket watches and pendulum - all mechanisms exists to illustrate how they work, along interesting peek into lives of who made them.

EMMA – ESPOO MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
Paintings, sculptures, and other artifacts of ancient to modern art adorn this vast space. Various private foundations often display their collections here. Artifacts display amazing expressions of arcane art resurrected by modern artists, mingled with usage of latest tech including videos and sensors. Artists are not constrained to Finnish culture, but pan-europe art movements.

All in all, this place tries to rekindle interest of the old & young, and arouse interest of kids by combining latest tech innovations with art rooted in older times, and presents a reasonable opportunity for a family visit.

The exhibition centre has a cafe that serves lunch for a reasonable price on weekdays and brunch on weekends.

The weekend brunch costs €21,50 and includes among others yogurt, muesli, berries, fruit, cold cuts, eggs, Karelian pasties, croissants, three sorts of hot food (also vegetarian option), cakes and coffee. Pretty decent brunch but not that good value for money, I think.

Coffee on its own costs €2,50 which is fine, though.

The cafe has friendly service.

This rating is only for the cafe, the exhibition centre would earn five stars with its interesting changing exhibitions, lovely toy museum and, of course, the flying saucer Futuro in it backyard.

WeeGee is a marvellous place you can spend a whole day in: art, design, history, nice food, nice shop, a toy museum for kids... Something for everyone.

The Emma - Espoo Museum for Modern Art is the biggest and best known but the other museums are also very good. You get a combination ticket for all of them.

The Espoo historical museum gives a concise and an interesting glimpse of the history of Espoo from the stone age onwards - which on many ways reflects the history of Finland. They often have very good special exhibitions, too.

The toy museum upstairs is really nostalgic for adults - and the kids will love it! There's a lot the kids can do and play with there.

Not a part of the museum centre anymore but just accross the yard is also the Helinä Rautavaara-myseum of ethnography.

Emmas exhibition center WeeGee is located in a famous concrete ugly building which Arno Ruusuvuori designed for the printing company Weiling & Göös in the 1970's. Through the museum shop you can visit the yellow Futuro house, a flying saucer landed on this back yard in Espoo. The compact house was originally designed as a skiing cottage in the same period as the main building and though it looks quite fragile it is warm in the winter. Mass production didn't take off as well in Finland as was expected due to high cost and increasing price of oil, the source for plastic. Licensing made it possible to produce world wide some 100 Futuros, which you could still find in odd places around the world. The Finnish Watch museum has an interesting small exhibition of jewellery made in Finland during our 100 years of independence and the history of watches. One of the most eye catching pieces is a turquise pendant designed by famous painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela to his relative. The guide was very knowledgeable, she could tell off hand more about the history of the items on show. The third free exhibition is about fashion as 13 young Nordic designers see it. The clothes are more striking in appearance than practical, the reason why they are in an art museum.

Toy museum and beautiful arts. That is what I'm going to remember from this place. It is a lovely museum that is really worth seing.

The toy museum brought fond nostalgic memories from my own youth and the art made me stop and ponder them. I also loved exhibited pictures from nature. I enjoyed my stay here greatly!
