Fun for some, work for others

Reading a newspaper, enjoying a night out in a restaurant or watching a sports broadcast, a theatre performance or a film are popular recreational activities for many. On the other side of the spectrum are the makers of entertainment, which is exactly what this museum trip covers!
Marvel at the massive restaurant-kitchen utensils in the Hotel and Restaurant Museum, and the printing machines of the early 20th century in the Päivälehti Museum; listen to sports commentaries and famous hit songs from sports events of the years past in the Sports Museum of Finland and learn about the careers of actors and actresses, stage designers, cameramen and light operators, costume designers and many more at the Museum of Moving Image and at the Theatre Museum.
Along the tour you will have the opportunity to try out your skills in typesetting, or as a sprinter or theatre sound designer. Which role is more appealing – making or viewing?
