  • Emma is the museum. Must visit. So beautiful and well curated. Clock museum also is great.
  • Good expansive space with multiple exhibits. Space ship house outside is worth visit. Toy museum is great for small kids, things to do - even a slide.
  • Fabulous little museum come exhibition space. Various changing exhibitions. Art galleries, toy museum etc. Gift shop. Disability friendly. Large car park. Friendly helpful staff. My family live in Espoo, so I always take my grandchildren to the museum when I visit.
  • Maybe my favorite museum in the Helsinki area. I could hardly tear myself away from the wave machine, or the video of a sculptress bathing. I loved being able to go in the 1968 Futuro pod, I wanted more time in the clock museum, and the history of the Espoo area exhibit was engaging. I didn't have enough time in the open storage area, and, I really want to find some children to bring back to the kids area, it seemed like a family could make a day of it there. I think I will make time for a second visit before we leave Helsinki. And, go at lunch time the nicoise salad with salmon was outrageous.
  • Interesting museum with four different sections (modern art, toy museum, Espoo life, jewelry) and also temporary exhibitions. Also hosts one of the futuro house in the garden, since 1968... free WiFi and good coffee shop.
