Ateneum Art Museum

Classics with a twist
The Ateneum is Finland’s best-known art museum and the home of Finnish art. The images held by the Ateneum are ingrained in the collective memory of the Finnish people: 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, Carl Larsson, Pablo Picasso and Helene Schjerfbeck.
To be on display until 2020, 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), Eero Järnefelt's Under the Yoke (Burning the Brushwood) (1893), Edvard Munch's Bathing Men (1907–08) and Ilya Repin's Portrait of Natalia Nordmann (1900). Rediscover your favourite works of art and fall in love with new ones!
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.
