In the permanent experience room, even the smallest visitors can enjoy different atmospheres.Rulla is managed by the Cultural Affairs of the City of Tampere. Entrance is free of charge, and an instructor is always present for both groups and individual visitors.

Rulla’s values
EXPERIENCES: Experiences can be gained through both art and participating in activities yourself.
MULTIDISCIPLINARITY: Rulla aims to blur the borders between different art forms and encourage children to explore them. What does blue sound like? What kind of story does a picture tell?
ACTIVITY: We want to support the children’s own activity in every way we can. Rulla is a perfect place for letting your imagination run!


Kehona - Body sensing

In the Body Sensing -exhibition, every artwork is touchable. The works are playful and evoke feelings on many levels. The exhibition appeals to the senses of hearing, smelling and touch.

The starting point of the exhibition was peoples different ways of using senses as well as concerns about anomalous sensory abilities. The exhibition concept is based on concrete tanglibility, multisensoriness and suitability of the featured works to all age groups. Different senses produce different information and different experiences of the works.

The exhibition is curated by Päivi Setälä, Director of the Pori Centre for Children´s Culture. Marika Leinonen-Vainio was responsible for accessibility. The exhibition is a joint production by the Pori Art Museum and the Pori Centre for Children´s Culture in Satakunta.
