The collection of paintings from the Finnish Golden Age (1870-1920) is particularly interesting and beautiful. A good selection of paintings by Axeli Gallen Kallela, Hugo Simberg, Helen Scherfbeck and Albert Edelfeldt's are presented as a good collection of Finnish paintings from this period. They also have a large Edvard Munch painting from his Warnemünde-period (1907). They also have a small, but nice collection of European paintings (Cezanne, Van Gogh etc.).Check out temporary exhibitions before you go, you can be lucky to see a good one while you are there. The cafe has good pastries and ok food. There are two book shops. The building is a piece of nice architecture. Very good location. The Ateneum, Kiasma (contemporary art) and The Sinebrychoff Museum (a good collection of older European art) are all a part of the Finnish National Gallery and you should ask for possible tickets that can be valid for all three museums.
