The rotating exhibits are generally worth seeing but the permanent collection is always good. It takes an hour or more to take in as much as possible.

We were in Helsinki on vacation, and this Helsinki art museum was on our itinerary due to the guide book recommendations. I was expecting to like it, but it far exceeded my expectations. The exhibits on Finnish art were quite good. The Tove Jansson centenary exhibition, however, took us totally by surprise. I was vaguely aware of her and her... More

Came here to see the Tove Jansson centenary exhibition, which was fantastic - absolutely unmissable for anyone interested in her work, whether it is the moomins, her paintings, satirical cartoons, novels for adults, etc, etc. The collection of her work here is huge, you should allow a good couple of hours for this exhibition alone. If you are involved in... More

We travelled from the UK to see Helsinki and specifically this exhibition. Most pictures are in private collections and so an unmissable opportunity to see her art, work photos etc etc A truly unique unmissable exhibition. Worthy the effort. Very inspiring too to see her work. What a talent! Unfortunately no money left over to buy souvenirs. Clearly someone us... More

I visited this place one afternoon to see the Tove Jansson exhibition, which exceeded our expectations! The exhibition is rich in broad material from her entire career, and also includes photos of her, art made by her family members and in cooperation with Tove as well as drawings, oil paintings, 3D models of the Moomin houses, video clips, artefacts and...

Visited the rove jansson exhibition. 12 euro admission. It was worth seeing. It was quite a large exhibition covering her whole range of work. Would recommend a visit. Whole gallery worth visiting.

Visited during Tove Jansen exhibition and very interesting. General stuff seemed decent and the lack of much religious Renaissance paintings was welcome as these can be overwhelming/ Has a couple of cafes too to relax in.

I went to the Ateneum in August 2014. Good thing: There is a special Tove Jansson exhibition till early September. Lots of her work, and of course lots of Moomi pictures, paintings, models and effects. Bad thing - part of the museum (2rd floor) is closed as of now for renovation. I didn't see when it would reopen. Still, lots... More
