This museum is a MUST when coming to visit Finland. It is worth the visit. You can as much or as little time as you want to. Easy access by public transportation.

The artwork was magnificent. I had never thought about Finnish art before. It needs more visibility because it is beautiful and should have worldwide acclaim.

This art museum contains some amazing works with artists I’d never heard of before. Lots of great portraiture, impressionist paintings well curated. Also a great cafe in basement and good bookshop.

I have visited many art museums in the world. Ateneum is not so big as Louvre or Hermitage, not so full of world class masterpieces like Prado or Uffizi. Ateneum with its classical art collection shows the soul of Finland. Not a lot of joy,...More

An imposing building that houses collections of mostly Finnish artists from modernism to symbolism, impressionism, cubism. On their own, most of the works seem a bit derivative , with artists emulating (mostly Parisian) trends. My favorite was probably the room devoted to Kalevala, especially the...More
