Change is the only permanent thing in an environment of cultural-historical significance. The Glims Farmstead Museum is exhibiting a dream of a modern visitor centre. The cultural committee has given the green light to the plan, so the dream will become a reality.

The visitor centre will modernise the museum’s services and free up old buildings for new uses. It will offer spaces for exhibitions, courses, events, celebrations and school pupils who – in the spirit of the modern curriculum – will be able to get out of the classroom. The exhibition consists of posters and small-scale models made by Aalto University students on a construction design course. Visitors will be able to give feedback on individual works and on the development of the museum more generally.

- We would like to receive as much information as possible about the wishes of museum visitors and Espoo citizens, says museum lecturer Aino Osola, describing the aim of the exhibition.

In summer, guided tours on the theme of “guest house to visitor centre” will be arranged in the surroundings in Glims, which took centuries to build into its present form.
