Activity tours to the exhibition

Group tours are not organized in the autumn 2020.

Groups are invited to attend an activity-based tour to Rulla’s current exhibition, emphasising functionality and the use of different senses. The tours take you to the world of different art forms experienced through sight, touch and experiments. Depending on the exhibition, activities included may mean crafts, drama, literary arts or dance, just to name a few. Even though the tours include many activities, Rulla’s rules must always be followed in the exhibition space and all exhibition items must be treated with care.

Groups must always reserve a tour for the exhibition. Tours for groups are always free of charge. Reservations for exhibition tours are accepted around two weeks before the start of the exhibition.

Instructions for the tours

•    Take your shoes off: at Rulla, we walk around wearing just our socks or indoor shoes.
•    Groups are asked to move together and act calmly, even though sometimes you are allowed to get really excited at Rulla, too.
•    Touching exhibition items is prohibited unless explicitly allowed.
•    The teacher/group leader participates on the tour with the group.
Day care and school groups can prepare for the visit by getting to know the topic of the exhibition in advance. For more information, visit the Exhibitions page. In addition, some exhibitions include materials that can be downloaded on this website.
