Ateneum Art Museum

Kaivokatu 2,

The home of Finnish art and part of the National Gallery. Finland's premier art museum showcases beloved works as well as acclaimed exhibitions from Finland and abroad.


Our collection includes more than 20,000 national treasures; works of art that we all own together. We have art dating from the 19th century to modern.

Beloved masterpieces of visual art by Albert Edelfelt, Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Helene Schjerfbeck, Hugo Simberg, Ellen Thesleff and other Finnish artists tell the story of Finnish art, while tracing the development of our nation.

International artists in our collection include Paul Czanne, Marc Chagall, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Vilhelm Hammershi and Fernand Lger. In recent years, we have held successful temporary exhibitions starring artists such as Tove Jansson, Amedeo Modigliani and Pablo Picasso.

The works in our holdings create shared views of the world, both past and future. We want to use the power of art to generate new perspectives, insights and empathy.

The Ateneum has been the home of art since 1888. Many of Finlands great artists have studied in the building, which housed an art school until the 1980s. Even today, the Ateneum is a living house of art that invites people not only to exhibitions but also to thought-provoking events.
