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.

You get a great insight in the history of the countrys art. We were here on a saturday, and there were so many people. So I would recommend any other day

Our main interest for todays visit was to see those special bird paintings from 1800's. They are so rich in details that even ornithologist cannot find anything to argue against. The rest of Ateneum art came as a bonus.

If you have a particular interest in Finish artists or your tastes lean to modern art, you'll probably quite like this museum. I learned a fair amount, but was unimpressed with the layout of the gallery. With the top floor was vacant, there are only...More
