  • We visited quite a few art galleries while on our trip to Helsinki and this was by far our favourite! It had a good variety of artwork on show with a lot of different displays.

  • A must go place for tourists and museum enthusiasts. Ateneum showcases year-long some of Finland's most famous and important paintings. Not a huge fan of art museums myself.
  • A great collection of traditional and modern Finnish art. 3 floors of art work with special seasonal exhibition on the top floor. Cafe and shop on ground floor. 18 euros for entry.
