Puppet Theatre Sampo is in the center of Helsinki (Erottajankatu 7, 2nd floor). At the theatre there is also Sampos Fairytale Café. Entrance from the inner court yard (not accessible for disabled – more info below).
In our gallery, you can also see exhibitions related to puppet theatre and the changing illustration exhibitions of the Blue Gallery. You can also buy our products and gift cards.
Sampo´s Fairytale Cafe is open only for performances, and opens one hour before the performance starts.
Puppet Theater Sampo is easy to reach with public transport (trams 10, 3, 6, metro Central Railway Station or Helsinki University).
There are few parking spaces near the theater, but next door is Aimo-park Erottaja, for which Sampo’s customers receive a 20% discount (ask for a discount card for theater ticket sales).
Prams/strollers can be left in the sheltered courtyard. There is no space for them in the theater during the performances – outside the performances you are warmly welcomed to the café with the carriages as well.
