Ticket sales, tickets with yearly cards, and admission for under 18-year-olds
Until further notice, all tickets are sold through Lippu.fi. Exhibition tickets cannot be purchased on site at the Ateneum. As there is a great demand for tickets for the Ilya Repin exhibition, the Ateneum has chosen to partner with Lippu.fi, which has a large capacity for ticket sales, even in peak situations.
When purchasing tickets through Lippu.fi, the price of a standard ticket is €19, and the price of a discounted ticket is €17 (students, pensioners, unemployed, conscripts, and non-military conscripts). The Museum Card can be used for paying in Lippu.fi.
Holders of other free-entry cards (e.g. press card, Friends of Ateneum, teachers) will be welcome to visit the Ateneum once the strictest coronavirus restrictions have been lifted. At this stage, also groups will be welcome to visit Ateneum. There will be a separate announcement on this.
Until further notice, due to the restrictions on visitor numbers, under 18-year-olds, also infants, must pay the standard admission fee. When restrictions are relaxed, under 18-year olds are welcome to visit the Ateneum free of charge. However, they must still acquire a ticket through Lippu.fi.
Depending on the chosen delivery method, a Lippu.fi service fee of two euros and a booking fee of at least one euro are added to all prices quoted above, including tickets purchased with free-entry cards.
In addition to being available on the Lippu.fi online service, tickets can be purchased from the Lippu.fi telephone service at +358 600 900 900 (Mon–Fri, 9:00–17:00, €2/minute + mobile call charge/local network charge). Tickets can also be purchased at the Stockmann department store.
When the strictest restrictions are relaxed, tickets will also be sold at the museum’s ticket office, if they are available. Only the ticket price of €19 or €17 will be charged for a ticket purchased at the museum.
Staying safe during your visit to the Ateneum
Each admission ticket is sold with an arrival time. Arrival times are staggered at 30-minute intervals. Access for museum visitors who have purchased a ticket is through the entrance on Ateneuminkuja. Visitors can arrive at any time during the 30-minute period stated on their ticket. To avoid crowding, we recommend that not all visitors arrive at the museum at the very beginning of their 30-minute arrival period. After arriving at the museum, visitors can stay at the exhibitions for as long as they want until the museum closes.
Exhibitions on show at the Ateneum, the museum shop and Café Ateneum
The exhibitions on show:
Fokus gallery: Hannu Väisänen and the Schillmark Variations, from Tue 18 May 2021 onwards

In addition to the exhibitions, the Ateneum museum shop will be open. Café Ateneum on the third floor is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00 (entrance only with an admission ticket). Ateneum Bistro is closed until further notice and will be opened as soon as possible. The museum shop and the Ateneum Bistro (after the reopening) are accessible without visiting the exhibition, if there is enough space. We comply with all current restrictions on gathering size.
Groups and virtual guided tours
Open exhibition intros and guided tours in silent galleries will be held later during the run of the Ilya Repin exhibition, if the existing restrictions allow it. When the exhibition intros will be held, groups can buy their tickets from Ateneum. You can purchase individual tickets to virtual guided tours from the Museoshop online shop (only in Finnish).
