The EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art (Finnish: EMMA - Espoon modernin taiteen museo, Swedish: EMMA - Esbo moderna konstmuseum), is a major art museum in Espoo in southern Finland. After the founding of Espoo Art Museum Foundation in September 2002, EMMA opened its doors for visitors in 2006. With its 5000 square metre exhibition space, it is the largest museum in the whole of Finland. The permanent exhibition presents a selection from The Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection and the other half the changing domestic and international exhibitions.

Several exhibitions in the former print house building. Contemporary art. I especially liked the Saastamoinen collection. Also the exhibition of Finnish Designers Tapio Wirkkala and Ruth Brygg was interesting. In the summer you can also visit Futuro.
Five stars isn’t enough for this place. The exhibits were downright thrilling and the staff were a delight too. The Futuro alone is worth the price of admission. On the last step of the Metro, so easily accessible from downtown Helsinki.
The concrete bunker-like building just doesn't appeal very artistic to me. As a facility with educational organisations along the museum activity the complex is otherwise worth five stars.
Worth visiting if you like modern art. Other museums too in the same and in the next building.
Amazing space for an art museum and a really great collection of work. It is a bit of a hike from Helsinki, but easily accessible from the metro station nearby.
Called Weegee this museum has an extensive display. It includes viewable restoration area and has a beautiful display of glass and ceramics design. Some of the exhibits have interactive viewing. Beautiful building as well.
This is a large and progressive modern art museum, comparable to the ones I seen in the USA.
Diverse museum with changing exhibitions in Emma and the classic clock, toy and region museums all at the same time. Nice Cafe with ethical choices on order.
A good museum of modern art. The exhibitions change, so you'll have to check their website before going. Good café.
Great permanent exhibition, Saastamoinen collection. In one building also watch and you museum. In the inner court also a classfibre UFO which were originally planned as homes.
Great and huge art gallery including many types of art works, I enjoyed my visit to there, I recommend you to visit with family or friends so you can enjoy disturbing the works to each other.
This is one of the best museums in the entire Helsinki metro area. Highly recommend. The art museum upstairs is exquisite. The “bonus” museums on the first floor are nice, but not necessarily worth a visit in their own right (toy museum, clock museum). Perhaps with the exception of the Espoo history museum which I found quite captivating. EMMA is now more accessible than ever, thanks to the Länsi (West) metro! Accepts museum card.
