WWA cannot presently contribute to the funding of research stays, but will help with finding accommodation at Unihome. Computers with Internet access are available for guests of WWA.
In addition to its valuable research materials, much of it deriving from von G.H. von Wrights activities as one of Ludwig Wittgenstein's heirs and literary executors, WWA houses some unique memorabilia, such as Wittgenstein’s walking stick, the handkerchief used to cover his face after his death, and von Wright’s travelling typewriter from 1919.
The facilities of WWA are shown to visitors by arrangement with the Curator of WWA Bernt Österman (hy-wwa at helsinki.fi).
