Groups and guides to order

Due to the pandemic, guided tours to the museum will not be arranged for the time being.

Groups may order their own guide for a tour of the museum at a time that suits them. In addition, groups of more than 20 people are entitled to a group discount.


Guided tours around either Aboa Vetus or Ars Nova last for an hour. Touring both sides takes 1.5 hours. If the tour is just of one side, the group can visit the other side after the tour (within opening hours).

Group size

For one group the recommended maximum size is 30 persons per guide ( there is no minimum size). If the group is larger, you can book several guides. A maximum of three groups can start the guided tour at the same time on the same side of the museum.


It is possible to have a guided tour in Finnish, Swedish or English. We also offer tours in plain language and in descriptive language.

Ask for possible language alternatives!


Normal admission fee to the museum is 11 € / person, unemployed, students and seniors 8 € / person, for a group over 20 people the admission fee is 7 € / person.
