Are you retired, a student, a shift worker or otherwise free in the afternoons? At the Afternoon Dates, you can come to the City Museum to enjoy yourself, relax and chat in an inspiring environment, where you can also participate in workshops, nostalgic moments and info sessions. The theme of the dates changes every month, and each time is different. Admission to the Afternoon Dates, like the museum in general, is free, and you do not have to register in advance. Anyone who has time in the afternoons is welcome to attend.
At the Afternoon Dates in September, we will meet in the lobby of the museum to knit and crochet in the spirit of an old time sewing club. Participants can bring their own unfinished handicrafts or start something new. You can borrow yarn and tools from the museum. The instructor will also offer guidance for those who wish, and a new technique will be introduced at each meeting.
In October, archaeologists and building researchers will talk about their work at the City Museum and bring up topical themes. In November, we explore the world of photography together with researchers from the museum’s photo archives. In December, we will remember and experience a nostalgic Christmas season. Welcome!
Afternoon Dates Wednesdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Helsinki City Museum Aleksanterinkatu 16
