Visit to Villa Mairea is possible by confirmed booking. The visit is a guided tour of approximately 40 minutes, guided by the villa’s personnel. Tours are available from Tuesday to Saturday in Finnish and English, usually also in Swedish. Please make a request online or by e-mail a week before the intended visit at the latest. During the summer season visitors are numerous, so it is advisable to contact us as early as possible. The house is also in private use, so please notice that visits are not possible to arrange at all times. Booking requests are dealt with in order of arrival (to avoid double bookings). Mairea Foundation always confirms the time of the visit, usually by e-mail. So please make sure that your booking has been confirmed before the visit.

Guided tours can be arranged from Tuesday to Saturday. Please see more information on the times we are closed here.

The scheduled guided tours will continue in 2019, please follow our website.

Please contact us if you wish to make a booking for a private tour.
