This is a very interesting museum of contemporary art. Always interesting exhibitions. This time surrealist art of Meret Oppenheim. Also a new exhibition of Wirkkala and Bryk. Great! Museum's basic Saastamoinen Collection is also fine.

Wirkkala & Bryk walk-in warehouse collection was impressive. Especially Wirkkala manages to catch true piece of Finnish soul. Modern art exhibition was nicely set (though I'm not a great fan of modern art).

A great place to visit in Tapiola, Espoo. A lot of modern art in an old printers building. There are also a few other museums in the same building (with one entrance fee).

I have taken several friends to Emma, including outings with little children. They all loved it. We learned a lot at the glass exhibit. The children did not want to leave the toy museum. The older folks were fascinated with the clock museum.
