Right let's start with the fact that this place changes exhibitions and they differ in their output. Some of them are outright outstanding, others go way over your head and others just make you wonder. For my part modern art makes my head spin occassionally as I try to interpret it and I do rather enjoy it. Not everybody agrees... More

If you are visiting Espoo, EMMA could very well be a "must see". EMMA is a museum of modern art, byt there is more than that. You can visit a clock museum in the same building. Here you can see an impressing exhibition on the history of timekeeping up to the modern era. The museum also has special exhibitions. I... More

This art museum is very dynamic having many exhibitions during the year. Best way is to examine what exhibition is showing and decide are you interested. Last time we visited was an unknown artists for us. First you wander around and learn the exhibition. Gradually you grasp what are the messages from the artists. So be patient and examine the...

Had the chance to visit in January and really enjoyed the artwork that was on offer. Lots of interesting pieces in a very modern and spacious setting. Has a great art shop too with lots of interesting things on sale. Definitely worth a visit!

Modern "classics" in regularly changing exhibitions but the real must to see is the UFO house outdoors and to learn the story of it

I visited EMMA for the first time. I liked it, especially because it is located in the WeeGee house which also houses 4 other museums (such as the City museum, a Toy museum and a Clock museum). That's convenient for families and groups with different interests. When it comes to modern art, I think it is always a gamble. New... More

This a modern museum building, a former publishing house building. There are several museums: Emma, the art museum, Clock Museum, Toy museum as well as Espoo History Museum. There is also a cafe/restaurant serving lunch, coffee, sandwiches, cakes and food items. E.g. organic Jymy icecream which was recently awarded as an organic food product of the year 2016.
