- About Ateneum
The third floor of Ateneum will be closed as of March 2014 for around one-and-a-half years while the roof undergoes renovation. During the renovation, popular Finnish works from Ateneum’s collections will be on display in three exhibition halls on the ground floor of the museum.
The new roof will provide better ventilation, while new insulation around the skylights will also enhance energy efficiency. These improvements will have a considerable effect on indoor conditions, which are especially demanding in the museum building. The work has been commissioned by the owner of the building, Senate Properties.
Works from Ateneum’s collections online
During the renovation, popular Finnish works from Ateneum’s collections will be on display in three exhibition halls on the ground floor of the museum. Works from the collections can also be viewed online.
The Google Cultural Institute online service includes 55 classic works from Ateneum in high-resolution images with descriptions. The online service makes it possible to take a virtual tour of the museum’s collection display.
Images and information about works from the collections of Ateneum, Kiasma and Sinebrychoff Art Museum can also be found on the Finnish National Gallery’s recently updated Art Collections Online service.
NOTE! Not all the works are on display all the time.
Its status as a national gallery requires the Ateneum Art Museum to lend its works to other museums in Finland and abroad, and this is one of the reasons why the selection of works on display in Ateneum varies to some extent.
