Maunula House premises

Book a Maunula House venue for your personal use

Maunula House includes premises that are suitable for a variety of uses. Descriptions and rules of use of the premises are available in the City of Helsinki Varaamo service, where you can also make a reservation.

Please note that the Metsäpurosali Hall and the exhibition rooms are not available for booking through Varaamo. Additional information is available below.


The adaptable Metsäpurosali Hall, equipped with high-quality performance technology, is an excellent venue for hosting concerts, theatre and dance performances and film screenings as well as lectures, seminars and meetings. The ascending stage (3.5 m x 8.35 m) allows a variety of performances to be easily arranged. The hall accommodates up to 200 people, and separate chairs are available for 180 people.

The Metsäpurosali Hall cannot be reserved through the Varaamo service. If you are interested in reserving the hall, please contact Cultural Producer – contact us.

The room rent for organisers of a private or public cultural or artistic event subject to a charge is €120/performance hour.
For rehearsal and construction time, the fee is €50/hour.
For events other than cultural or artistic events, the room rent is €200/hour.
The use of performance technology must always be agreed in advance.

Please ask more information about the additional costs of cleaning and extra technology needs from our producer.

The hall includes a screen, video projector and audio system, to which you can connect your own device using either an HDMI cable or a VGA/3.5 mm audio cable. In addition, four wireless microphones are available. Please be prepared to bring your own cables and connectors that are compatible with our equipment.

Please note that Maunula House does not currently offer sound and light services for events. Thus, in order to use the Metsäpurosali Hall’s performance technology, event organisers must have their own technicians who are familiar with the operation of Soundtrack Vi 2000 and Chamsys MagicQ MQ60 tables. If the organiser does not have their own sound/light technician, the equipment is not available.
