Activity tours to the exhibition

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.

Reservations for exhibition tours are accepted around one week before the start of the exhibition.
