For seniors

KAMU's historical afternoons for seniors feature lectures on topics related to history and museum work. KAMU also offers seniors historical walks and excursions during which you can learn about the history of selected sites.

The lectures are one hour long and held on Wednesdays at 2 pm mainly in Aitio on the second floor of Exhibition Centre WeeGee.

We offer the first 60 participants a cup of coffee or tea free of charge. Coffee or tea is served at Cafe Zoceria. You can pick up your coffee coupon from the information desk at KAMU starting at 13.00 on the day of the lecture. You can use the coupon either before or after the lecture.

We adhere to government guidelines and regulations for COVID-19 prevention. 

Except for one lecture in Swedish held on the 22nd of March, the lectures are held in Finnish.
