Ateneum wants to attract and interact with a variety of audiences. Events, guided tours and workshops are some of the way we are able to open up the rich background of our exhibitions and the works of art in our collections. We offer tailor-made services to schools and different groups. It is our goal to offer all our visitors a pleasant and accessible visit to our museum.
