Ateneum, Helsinki: 22 reviews and 31 photos


The Ateneum Art Museum is an excellent art museum that should not be missed. It?s one of the three museums that belongs to the Finnish National Galley and it is completely dedicated to Finnish art. The other two museums are the Sinebrychoff Art Museum (classical art) and the Kiasma Art Museum (contemporary art).
In the Ateneum there is a permanent collection of works by Finnish artists such Albert Edelfelt, Akseli Gallen-Kallela and Pekka Halonen. Moreover there are temporary exhibitions ? when I visited there was the very interesting ?ONERVA - Women of the City? exhibit, illustrating the life of women in 1910s Helsinki through the eyes of writer and critic Onerva. Outstanding!
