Ateneum Art Museum - Review
The Ateneum Art Museum is a very interesting attraction for art lovers in the city of Helsinki. There is a broad collection of art from various different eras and belonging to several different styles. It is a treasury of amazing art from all over the world.
With over 4000 paintings and 700 sculptures on display, these to arts make up a major chunk of the museum. The paintings mostly belong to Finnish artists and their influences. The Images of war section and queer art section are perhaps the two most impressive ones. There are also several drawings and sketches in the mix.
In the international art collection you will find celebrated artists like Paul Gaugin, Vincent Van Gogh, Eugene Delacroix amongst others and there more than 600 paintings in this section. The section is certainly not to be missed and art lovers and culture seekers should certainly visit this gallery. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

Ateneum Art Museum, Helsinki Reviews
There is a nice flow to the museum with wide stairs and natural light. I enjoyed reading the posted descriptions about the Finnish art and the history behind the portraits. There are also some audio stations where you can listen to old recordings of Finnish music and folk songs. Normally I skip the gift shop but this one has unique gifts. It wasn’t that crowded either, which was a bonus.
Very nice museum in the centre of Helsinki. The building by itself is already worth the visit, as it is beautiful and a perfect fit for the art collection. There are always quite interesting temporary exhibitions, which are supplemented by the beautiful permanent collection. This has been divided in different themes, which guide you through Finland's great art history. A few days a year there is free entrance to the main collection.
I loved everything about this museum. It's in a gorgeous building, in a wonderful location, with fantastic facilities, and a really excellent collection, with a focus on Finnish art. Highly recommended.
Gallery of mainly Finnish art, most of which I was new to. Some lovely portraits which I would love to have taken with me. Highly recommended.
Definitely a must if you visit Helsinki. Ateneum is the premier art gallery residing in an old building that used to be an art school almost 100 years ago. It has famous paintings from local masters as well as paintings from painters around the world. One very interesting detail was a gallery of self portraits from Finnish painters from different times.
