The Ateneum is Finland’s best-known art museum and the home of Finnish art. The beloved works in Ateneum’s collections date from the period from the 19th century to the modern age. The hugely popular exhibitions of Finnish and international art open up new perspectives into the past and the future.
Currently showing, Stories of Finnish Art illustrates the development of art in Finland from 1809 until the 1970s, juxtaposing the story of Finnish art with international developments in art and contemporary social events.
The Ateneum is home to events of all kinds: the museum organises regular workshops, lectures, guided tours and clubs. The Ateneum is part of the Finnish National Gallery, together with the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and Sinebrychoff Art Museum.
