Sibelius – The One and Only 22.1.2020-8.12.2021

A guided tour to the Sibelius – The One and Only Exhibition tells about the composer’s life and music. What was his family like, what life in the beginning of the previous century was like, who did he travel with and where? The tour also explains the status of Turku as a music city during Sibelius’s time, which of his friends lived here, and why the museum named after him is specifically in Turku.

Price: 40 €/group + entrance fees.
Fridays 4 pm onwards, weekends, or holidays: 60€/group + entrance fees.

Architecture tour of the museum building

A horrible cube or a wonderful concrete building?
During the tour we will explore the architecture of the museum building both from the outside and the inside.
How does the brutalist architecture of the 1960’s fit in the surroundings that is dominated by buildings from 19th century and an oak that was planted in the 17th century? What makes the museum building special and why is it a protected building?

Duration: 60 min
Price: 40 €/group + entrance fees.
Fridays 4 pm onwards, weekends, or holidays: 60€/group + entrance fees.
Group size: max. 20 persons/guide, one group at a time.

Ruisrock 1970 – How it all began

Exhibition Ruisrock 1970 – How it all began dives into the early days of the oldest and longest running Finnish rock festival. On the guided tour you will learn about the youth culture of the era and the Finnish society of the late 1960’s, hear what kind of surprising problems the organizers encountered, how were the bands behaving and what sorts of adventures did the audience have. What happened to the drummer of the Czechoslovakian band Flamengo? How many litres of pea soup was sold at the festival? What happened at the official after party of the festival? The guided tour naturally involves music and you can also share your personal Ruisrock memory on a postbox.

Duration: 45 min
Price: 40 €/group + entrance fees.
Fridays 4 pm onwards, weekends, or holidays: 60€/group + entrance fees.
Group size: max. 20 persons/guide, one group at a time.
