THE INFORMATION SERVICE

The Theatre Museum’s information service is happy to answer any questions regarding its collections and the theatre. Theatre professionals, researchers and anyone else interested in the performing arts may study the Theatre Museum’s archives, collections and reference library in the researcher room. There is also a special studio for viewing films and listening to recordings.

The indexes may be studied in the researcher room and the staff will instruct customers in their use, if necessary. More extensive research to order is subject to a charge of 30 € per hour.

Copies of photographs in the collections can be made by agreement (see Photograph Service). Some of the collections of objects are housed elsewhere. They have been indexed and photographed and may be ordered for closer viewing at the Museum.

Good to know!

The Press Collection at the Theatre Museum contains cuttings from 1923−2010. To find the review you are looking for, you must know the venue of the play and the season it was shown, as reviews have not been indexed according to the title of the play. Venues and dates of the opening nights can be found in the Finnish theatre performance database Ilona.

ILONA – THE FINNISH THEATRE PERFORMANCE DATABASE

Ilona has been realised in collaboration with the Finnish Theatre Information Centre. The information can be searched, for instance, by a certain play, performance or theatre professional.

IDA – THE THEATRE MUSEUM COLLECTION DATABASE

Information can be searched from the archive and artefact catalogues, recordings, photographs and library catalogues. In the database, the text is accompanied by digital photographs and in future also by sound and motion picture.

The Ilona and Ida databases together form the most important source of information about Finnish theatre. Both databases can be accessed from the Museum.
