Bring along the kids for an exciting day of adventure at the WeeGee Exhibition Centre! Our weekend of fun events designed for kids aged 410 and adult co-adventurers features a line-up of inspiring workshops and boredom-busting physical activities. Get moving with Skidit and explore music and rhythm in the toe-tapping Disco Laboratory! Hear musical answers to children’s tricky science questions from the singing science expeditioners, Laulavat tiedeseikkailijat!

The Exhibition Centre WeeGee has plenty of safe space for everyone to enjoy the adventure while taking each other into consideration. Have a blast on a Journey of Discovery!

The WeeGee journey of discovery is a coproduction between EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art, WeeGee Exhibition Centre, and Espoo City Museum KAMU, with the involvement of the Espoo School of Art and the Arkki School of Architecture for Children and Youth.
