At the Ateneum, you can find information about animals, marked by a lynx pawprint, next to exhibited works by the von Wright brothers. You can also compare art and animals at Helsinki Zoo, with images of works displayed, for example, next to the lion and the eagle-owl. Bus service 16, which conveniently runs from the Rautatientori bus terminal, just outside the Ateneum, to Helsinki Zoo, will feature special visuals to promote the cooperation around the city.
The scientifically detailed and accurate works by the von Wright brothers convey a love of nature. The mission of Helsinki Zoo is to safeguard biodiversity, so that future artists can also draw inspiration from the magnificent animal species and their interesting lives.
Helsinki Zoo will be open daily during the winter season, from 10:00 to 16:00.
