Open tours and exhibition intros
Would you like to hear more about our current exhibitions? We organise guided tours or exhibition intros on the first Sunday of each month. The tours and intros are included in the price of your entrance ticket, and they are organised in Finnish, Swedish, English, and Russian.
You do not need to register for the tours or intros. They are available on a first come, first served basis. A guided tour takes approximately an hour and an exhibition intro approximately 30 minutes.

Visit with children
The Ateneum is a hugely fascinating building for children, too. Through the eyes of children, adults can see familiar classics from a new angle. Stroll around together and see what you find – it may be a new favourite or two!
