Learn in the museum

Espoo City Museum provides educational services to learners of all ages.

Welcome to the museum!

A visit to the museum supports school instruction and can be combined with many different school subjects. Museum visits are always free of charge for groups from day care, preschool and school groups. Teachers can see KAMU’s exhibitions for free in order to prepare for their class group’s visit by showing their OAJ (the Trade Union of Education) membership card at Exhibition Centre WeeGee’s ticket counter.

Advance reservations are required for group visits to the museum. It is advisable to prepare for the visit in advance by talking to the group about the exhibition – why you are going to the museum and what you will see there. Pupils are their teacher’s responsibility throughout the entire museum visit!
