KAMU Espoo City MuseumKAMU Espoo City Museum


KAMU Espoo City Museum regularly produces new research data and, as the data accumulates, new, interesting perspectives on Espoo’s history are sought. The results of the research are used, among other things, as basic information in the planning of exhibitions.

Muinaistutkijan matkassa project

Initiated in 2020, Muinaistutkijan matkassa (With the Archaeologist) is KAMU Espoo City Museum’s project processing information about Espoo’s archaeology.

The themes of prehistory will be highlighted to the general public next year with the Johtolankoja juurillemme (Leads to Our Roots) exhibition at the WeeGee Exhibition Centre. The KAMU exhibition opening on 17 March 2022 is the first in Finland examining prehistory from the perspective of genetic information. The exhibition looks at the genome of modern humans and traces our roots in prehistory.

KAMU will also publish an easily approachable work on the prehistory of Espoo. It responds to a clear need, since current similar publications date back to the 1990s. The publication offers further information on the archaeological themes of the exhibition from Espoo’s perspective.

The Karhusuo excavation takes part in the European Heritage Days held between 6 and 12 September 2021. In addition, mobile guide apps will allow the general public to get to know significant archaeological sites in Espoo.
