At its meeting on Thursday 27 May 2021, the coronavirus coordination group for the Helsinki metropolitan area decided that libraries and museums can be opened with certain limitations as of 1 June 2021.

Libraries

Library facilities will be open to a maximum of half of their normal capacity as of 1 June 2021. Our staff will make arrangements to ensure safe distances, for example, between those using customer computers. Read more about library services.

Museums and exhibitions

Exhibition spaces at museums and cultural venues as well as other exhibition spaces will be open from the beginning of June. This decision applies to the city museum’s units (KAMU, Pentala, Glims, Lagstad, Villa Rulludd) and the Exhibition Centre WeeGee. 

Our museums and exhibition spaces will open as follows:

  • Exhibition Centre WeeGee, KAMU, Glims Farmstead Museum and Lagstad School Museum on 1 June 2021
  • Pentala Archipelago Museum on 5 June 2021
  • Villa Museum Villa Rulludd on 6 June 2021

Public events

On 24 May, the Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland decided to extend its decision to ban all indoor and outdoor public events and general meetings for a fixed period of time, while allowing a maximum of 10 people indoors and a maximum of 50 people outdoors as of 1 June 2021.

Although most public events have been cancelled, small cultural events will be held outdoors in June in compliance with the guidelines. Read more about the events on the kulttuuriespoo.fi website. Summer camps and clubs for children and young people will also be organised in compliance with the restrictions and recommendations.

Cancelled events at the city’s cultural venues (Sello Hall, Cultural Centre, Kannusali, Children’s Cultural Centre Aurora, Exhibition Centre WeeGee and Vindängen) will be held at a later date, if possible. Each cultural venue will provide information on the cancelled and postponed events on their website, together with instructions on how to return pre-purchased tickets.
