Mauri Kunnas Exhibition

The exhibition presenting the work and life of Mauri Kunnas is permanently on display at WeeGee.

A new exhibition opened at Exhibition Centre WeeGee. The exhibition focuses on the vast portfolio and life’s work of internationally renowned author and artist Mauri Kunnas. In the new showrooms covering over 300 square metres, you can learn about the worlds created by Mauri Kunnas and the themes included in his impressive body of work of dozens of books. In the exhibition, you may encounter pirates and learn about the planets in our solar system. The thematic collections in the showroom will lead the visitors to the colourful and diverse world of Mauri Kunnas.

The Mauri Kunnas exhibition has something to see and experience for visitors of all ages. Children can learn about the imaginative works by Kunnas by playing in the books’ settings and reading the books themselves. You can try out life as a pirate and see one of the most important tools for Santa Claus. You can also learn about the life of Kunnas and the creation process of the books in the showrooms. The works on display include detailed pencil sketches and colourful aquarelle sketches.

Espoo is the hometown of Mauri Kunnas, which is why the exhibition on his life’s work will have a permanent home in WeeGee Exhibition Centre. The exhibition will also be updated with new content so that the future books by Kunnas can also be showcased. The showrooms opening now will also host programmes for children during events at WeeGee.

We hope that a visit to the exhibition will inspire everyone to grab a book by Mauri Kunnas full of varied details and exciting stories!

Once the exhibition opens, WeeGee’s selection will include guided tours subject to a fee and open tours during the free admission nights that will complement the exhibition experience. Unfortunately, we are not yet accepting tour bookings, but we will announce them on this page as soon as the tours become available. The exhibition is not part of the KULPS culture and sports paths in 2022.
