The centre offers daily guided tours and special inspirational tours. 

Guided tour

The guided tour is an excellent way to get the most out of your visit to the centre. The first stop is the fully renovated Design Museum Arabia, where you can explore the museum’s outstanding collection of Finnish ceramics and glassware. Next you get a glimpse into the future of design at the centre’s Design Lab and visit the studio of a ceramics artist in the Art Department. The installations at Fiskars Pavilion and Showroom are also included in the tour. 

Get in touch with us to ensure your tour meets the needs and interest of your group.

Plus you will have plenty of time to shop at the new Iittala & Arabia Design Centre Store or just relax in the café with a well-deserved cup of coffee.
