Themed Guided Tour / Wivi Lönn’s Ebeneser – Art Nouveau Castle on Children’s Terms

Wivi Lönn

Helsinginkatu 3-5, 00500 Helsinki

With the themed guided tour, we get to know the Ebeneser House, one of the most significant works of the most active creative period of architect Wivi Lönn. Inside the building, we get to see how the perspective of the users was always the starting point guiding Lönn’s design and the ways in which she created a comfortable and homely environment for the children in the kindergarten. Lönn’s interpretation of the most popular architectural trend of the early 20th century, the Art Nouveau, is also interesting in Ebeneser.

The themed guided tour is a collaboration between the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Kindergarten Museum and the Ebeneser Foundation. The themed guided has been written by Taina Sillanpää, the director and executive director of the Kindergarten Museum, and Anna Autio, the curator of collections of the Museum of Finnish Architecture and curator of the exhibition Long Live Wivi Lönn!
