And that is the one we loved most of all other museums or galleries, we had had a chance to see in the capital of Finland. The Ateneum Art Museum is located right across the Central Railway Station, on the huge square Kaivokatu. A very...More

This is well worth a visit. Just opposite the main railway station Not in the first rank maybe, but some very interesting art. And you learn a lot about Finland and its history this way too.

Ateneum Art museum - directly opposite the wonderful main railway station, (designed by Eliel Saarinen, and opened only 2 years after Finnish Independence in 1919) - is a fantastic building in its own right - once dubbed "“Palace of a million marks” and home to...More

All the most important national masterpieces in one place. This time there was also a twist of Duckburg in form of "replicas". Special exhibition of von Wright brothers was simply breathtaking journey to late 1800's. Definately worth visiting!

Nice piece of finnish art through the history. Edelfelt, Schjerfbeck and now Von Wright-brothers art. Also few not so famous or well known artists. We went there at sunday about midday, not queuing almost at all. Little bit pricey.

I visited Ateneum in September 2017, while visiting Helsinki as a tourist. I always go to the major art museums of any city I travel to, so this was an obvious choice for me. And I was not disappointed - it's truly an excellent, top-quality...More
