On this tour we learn about the history of Espoo by singing familiar songs together. The songs show us glimpses of the lives of people in different times. We recommend this tour for 1-5-year-old children. Available in English upon request; bookings a week in advance.

Reversing Into the Past, 30-45 min  

What was life like in Espoo when your mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were children? And how would a family live in a seal hunter’s house during the Stone Age? We take off in the present and reverse into the past. We get to know the different kinds of lives of people of the past by talking and playing together. We recommend this tour especially for pupils in preschool, but the tour is also suitable for 5-8-year-old children.
