Ateneum Art Museum
The Ateneum is Finland’s best-known art museum and the home of Finnish art. The images held by Ateneum are ingrained in the collective memory of the Finnish people.
Classics with a twist
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. The guest stars of the temporary exhibitions have included names such as Tove Jansson, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso and Helene Schjerfbeck.
The Stories of Finnish Art exhibition celebrates the Ateneum collections. The exhibition guides visitors through the development of Finnish art, from 1809 up until the 1960s. On display, side by side, are Finnish and international masterpieces from Ateneum’s collections, such as Le Corbusier's Two Women (1939), Hugo Simberg’s The Wounded Angel (1903), Edvard Munch's Bathing Men (1907–08) and Ilya Repin's Portrait of Natalia Nordmann (1900).

The Ateneum is home to events of all kinds: every month, the museum organises workshops, lectures, guided tours and clubs. Ateneum Art Museum is part of the Finnish National Gallery, together with the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and Sinebrychoff Art Museum.
