Interesting exhibitions and a good selection of best and most loved Finnish art around 1900. Not too big, nice museum shop, cafe is a bit too plain.

Whilst the breath of Finnish painters is impressive, all the art- save for a piece of two- is from the 1800s and later. If that's your thing, great. If not, like myself, I was impressed by only three works of art amongst all the floors...More

Highlights a lot of Finish artists but also some international. Some amazing pieces. I am not an art snob and so dont understand or care for a lot of the interpretive stuff but there are some wonderful and beautiful pieces.

This is a beautiful museum with an excellent permanent collection of Finnish and European artists. There was a current travelling exhibition showing Alice Neel's paintings - not to be missed!

In Ateneum you can find the largest collection of Finnish paintings from past to almost presence. If you like art, I will highly recommend this. Even the building itself is beautiful. The Museum Shop is a great place to shop souvenirs. The toilets are awful...More
