Easter Events in Helsinki

Shops are closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday and Monday (small shops open on Monday for 4 hours) but there are quite a few things to do anyway: Via Crucis, the Bible based Easter play on the streets of Helsinki, starts on Good Friday at 9.30pm in Kaisaniemi park. The procession continues via the […]

Dance Theatre for Children

We went today to see a 40 minute dance theatre play performed by MD in Kanneltalo. The play was called Lelukauppa, “the toy shop”, where the toys woke up in the night. Our kids sat in awe the whole 40 minutes as they watched the play. The plot was simple to follow and they though the doll […]

Newborns and Museums

On Saturday I’m off to meet a newborn baby but if I wouldn’t do that, I might be heading to Kaapelitehdas where 3xMuseo organises workshops and programme for the whole family between 11am and 3pm. Everyone under 18 is free and adults pay only 9e to enter the museums of photographic art (Suomen valokuvataiteen museo), […]
