- About Ateneum
To mark Ateneum’s 125th birthday, the museum is organising a lecture and discussion series focusing on its art collections. Each month, the museum’s staff, artists and curators will give short presentations about topical artworks in Ateneum’s collections.
Audiences will also have the chance to learn about the work performed by the museum conservators, international co-operation regarding the lending and storing of art, and how the museum’s acquisitions can be seen in the future exhibitions.
Wednesdays at 6pm, participation is included in the price of admission to the museum.
