Our neighbour is detonating bedrock
We share the city’s subterranean space with others and right now our neighbour is conducting major construction work. Across the Lasipalatsi square, Kulttuurikasarmi is detonating bedrock underground to build their new culture centre & cinema. Approximately 2–3 explosions can be heard at the museum during weekdays. The sound is sudden and loud, approx. 90–100 dB. The explosions do not cause any danger to our visitors, but they can feel a little bit scary.
There are no explosions on Saturdays or on Sundays. No other construction noise, drilling or such, should be heard at the museum. We apologise for the inconvenience!
