    Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA) is competing with Kiasma Art Museum in Helsinki. Espoo Museum is located in a grey dull building which is the former Weilin&Göös printing house from 1974. What it takes to buildings, Kiasma is located in a more striking building with more interesting architecture.

    What it takes to exhibitions, it is hard to say which one is better. On this Espoo visit, there was a stunning exhibition "Chiharu Shiota: Tracing Boundaries". It is an immersive installation consisting of tautly crisscrossing threads. Visitors are entering the maze of yarn, which encloses a sequence of old doors that open alternative routes through the work.

    Another impressive work was "Daniel Buren: Going for a Walk in a Zigzag". Buren created this enormous work consisting of countless folding screens, inviting visitors to take a walk through the zigzagging maze.

    Daniel Buren is famous for his practice of using 8.7 cm-wide vertical stripes as a visual tool to reveal hidden aspects of familiar spaces. In May, you can find 105 striped flags filling Espoo’s Tapionaukio square. Museum’s personnel have also striped vests.

    This is a nice place to enjoy life and spend summer time with families. There is a beautiful lake and a small cafeteria near here.

    Leppävaara is a major traffic hub by the local railwayline from Helsinki connecting vastly scattered Espoo suburbs with busses. There is a steady flow of customers as all the shops in the area including several supermarkets are concentrated here. The older building with large escalators has a cozy atmosphere with lots of cafeterias and restaurants.

    Went with kids and sister's family for the last holiday weekend. I hadn't visited the park for 25 years and generally I was pleasantly surprised. Minor hick ups about food and drink services but maybe Corona times caused that. Biggest issue was actually the paved park area outside the pools. Could be covered with something smooth like artificial grass. Sure, better maintenance could be possible as places looked quite a worn out but still, everything worked.

    Big Apple is the equivalent of eastern Itis for people living around the Espoo shores. During the past year some outlets have changed retailers but the general impression is business as usual ensured by two big supermarkets downstairs. The metro soon to be extended to Kivenlahti brings many customers now as they have to change to the local bus here. The location by the thoroughfare Länsiväylä was originally chosen to be easily reached by private car. The three cities Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa form the Capital District yet people living in the wealthiest part of Espoo seldom need to visit Helsinki for their shopping.

    This specialty museum of play, toys, and childhood can be found in Tapiola. The last time we visited in 2018, the museum was located in the WeeGee Exhibition Center next door. Now it has got its own building.

    This time there was so much action going on in this museum that we didn't take our shoes off but proceeded to EMMA which was our main goal. However, we made a short visit to the small Finnish Bell and Jewelry Museum Kruunu next door in the same building.

    Old cars in a barn. Two floors full of them. Some very nice items! The presidential car used by Mauno Kovisto for instance. Some russian-made luxury vehicles. Cars you recognice from old movies and so on.

    If you use GPS to find this museum, you will be in for another nice surprise. The road around lake Bodom is beautiful. Take your time and enjoy.

    This is a nice museum about Espoo's history and nature. I loved to see all those old objects. My son was also very interested in them. The museum is located in the museum center WeeGee with three other museums. It is easy to go there from Helsinki, too. Take a metro train to Tapiola and follow a marked route.

    We played the "Secrets of the Past". Very exciting and fun game. Room quality was excellent. We will definitely go to the next game also. Sadly we didn't have the opportunity to play their first game, "Pirate Ship". But you can play this, even if you didn't play the first game! The game hostess and the inventor were fun people.
