Sounds of Christmas at the Ateneum


Sat–Sun 23–24 Nov 2019, 10:00–17:00

Get an early taste of the Christmas spirit at the Ateneum! Come and listen to choirs singing Christmas tunes in the main stairwell, and sing along yourself. Also check out the selection available at the museum shop, and take advantage of the great offers for the gift-giving season.

The choirs will perform on the hour from 11:00 to 15:00 in the main stairwell of the museum, with a varied Christmas-themed repertoire. The audience will also be invited to sing along to familiar Christmas carols.

The museum shop will be stocked full of Christmas decorations, Christmas cards and other Christmas products. There is room in the Christmas stocking for an experience gift as well – there are many delightful options among our gift cards. Every purchase in the museum shop supports the operations of our museums.

Admission is free to the main stairwell and the courtyard. The exhibitions have normal admission fees.
