The City of Espoo is unique in not having a single centre, but instead having a number of major urban centres. One of these is Tapiola, which can lay claim to being the cultural heart of the city, as it features the Espoo Cultural Centre, home to the Tapiola Sinfonietta, Espoo City Theatre, and two concert spaces in Louhisali and Tapiolasali. Tapiola is also home to the nearby Exhibition Centre WeeGee, which consists EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art and KAMU Espoo City Museum. In addition, an exhibition showcasing the life’s work of author and artist Mauri Kunnas and Collection Kakkonen, a design collection focusing on Finnish glass and ceramics will open at WeeGee in autumn 2022.
Exhibition Centre WeeGee provides a wide range of experiences for visitors of all ages. There are numerous temporary exhibitions in the museums to complement their permanent collections, and guided tours, workshops and themed events are held throughout the year. The centre also houses the EMMA Shop, perfect for picking up souvenirs, and the Cafe Zoceria WeeGee. Behind the main building visitors will find the visionary Futuro House (no 001).
