The Ateneum Art Museum is closed due to renovation

The Ateneum Art Museum is closed to the public due to ventilation renovation starting 28 March 2022. The museum shop and the Ateneum Bistro are also closed during the renovation. The museum will reopen in early 2023 (the date to be announced separately).

During the renovation, the Ateneum’s ventilation systems will be renewed to meet the demands set by both the works of art and the increased number of visitors. Changes will also be made to, for example, the toilets and the entrance on Ateneuminkuja.

After the renovation, in early 2023, the Ateneum will open a completely new collection exhibition. Other 2023 exhibitions will be announced later.
