Cable Factory (Kaapelitehdas), situated in Ruoholahti district, is one of the largest cultural centres in Finland.
Once an industrial complex producing marine cables, the centre now offers lots to do, see and experience for everybody interested in culture.
Drop into the museum, be impressed by the dancing, get caught up in the activities, enjoy a festival, savour a snack and be inspired by the freedom of doing all kind of things.
Cable Factory houses e.g. three museums (Finnish Museum of Photography, Theatre Museum and Hotel and Restaurant Museum), galleries, dance theatres, restaurants and cafés, art schools, artists, bands and companies active in the creative industry. Dance House Helsinki opened its doors next to Cable Factory in February 2022.
The rented spaces are used for festivals, seminars, fairs, concerts and exhibitions all year round.
Cable Factory’s Konttori is the heart and living room of the house and it offers a pleasant stop-off point for all visitors.
Cable Factory’s covered lobby and main entrance the Glass courtyard is a unique space in Helsinki. Inside there is an info point, ticket sales and a factory shop Tehtaanmyymälä.
