Image. Word. Freedom.
The new permanent exhibitions at the museum shed light on the freedom of speech and censorship. On a large world map, you can follow global news feeds in real time and compare freedom of speech in different countries. In the nostalgic news park, you can access countless news and thousands of news-related photos. Old objects reveal how communications have accelerated and how the work of journalists has changed. Fascinating short documentaries and speeches by media experts liven up the history of how news is made and provide new insight into the future of media as well.
Printing, technology, work exhibitions
The Printing cellar is a live centre of Finnish print media history where you can discover the equipment and working methods used for the letter press – manual and mechanical typesetting and printing. In the popular Printing cellar work exhibitions, those skilled in traditional printing methods use authentic tools to show how books and other printed materials were made before the age of computers.
