The weegee house


The WeeGee house (Finnish: WeeGee-talo, Swedish: WeeGee-huset) is the former printing house of the Weilin+Göös publishing house situated on Ahertajantie in Tapiola, Espoo, Finland. The first two phases of the building were designed by architect Aarno Ruusuvuori and completed in 1964 and 1967. Nowadays, the protected building serves as the largest exhibition centre in Finland. The entirety of the exhibition centre was opened for the public in October 2006.

The WeeGee house hosts the Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA), the Espoo City Museum, the Helinä Rautavaara Museum, the Finnish Museum of Horology, the Finnish Toy Museum, Galleria AARNI and other cultural institutions. The museums share a common café and museum store. The exhibition centre is visited by 150 thousand people every year. At the other end of the building is the Etelä-Tapiola gymnasium.
