FOUR MUSEUMS AND EVENTS.
The Weegee Exhibition Center is a diverse cultural meeting place in Tapiola, which is a combination of a museum, exhibitions, and events. The WeeGee Exhibition Center operates in the former Weilin & Göös printing house in Tapiola, Espoo, designed by Aarno Ruusuvuori (1925-1992). WeeGee offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in two different museum worlds at once. These two museums are EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art and KAMU, Espoo City Museum. EMMA is a combination of domestic and international modernism, contemporary art, and design, while KAMU cherishes the history of Espoo, bringing it to the fore in modern times.
After the museum experience, visit the EMMA museum shop, where nice souvenirs can be found to take home or stop at the restaurant Cafe Zoceri WeeGee for a treat. In the yard of WeeGee, there is a unique attraction, the Futuro House designed by architect Matti Suuronen, which could be described as a utopian plastic house. It is open to the public from May to September.
The Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenkä and The Finnish Museum of Horology, which were previously located in WeeGee, will move to the neighboring plot. Both museums will reopen in the spring of 2022. The Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenkä is an excellent destination for families, as the museum shows the history of play culture from the 19th century to the present day. The Finnish Museum of Horology takes visitors to the wonderful world of clocks, their history and introduces how clocks are made and used in Finland.
Visit the WeeGee websites to find out about the opening hours and what exciting things are currently happening at the exhibition center. The exhibition center offers experiences all year round.

It is easily accessed by car as there is visitor parking at WeeGee with also disabled parking. It is also convenient to come here by bike as the closest City Bike station is nearby, located in Ahertajantie.
