Private tours


Ateneum offers regular guided tours that are included in the price of admission.

Private tours and introductory lectures allow you to find out more about the collections and special exhibitions at Ateneum under the guidance of the museum's experts. Ateneum's guides present and discuss art according to the wishes and needs of your group.

Private tours present the museum's collections and exhibitions during general opening hours. Ateneum's guides provide fascinating insights into exhibitions by focusing on specific works of art. If you want to view great art and learn about it at the same time, private tours are the perfect choice.

Introductory lectures are held in the Ateneum Hall, where you can sit comfortably while listening to an expert present the content and background of exhibitions. Images of the art are displayed at the same time. Following the lecture you can enjoy the exhibition at your own pace. If you appreciate a peaceful and quiet atmosphere in which to sit and learn more about exhibitions, introductory lectures are the perfect choice.
