Ateneum is not that big art museum. It takes about 2-3 hours to explore all the pieces of art. In spring 2018 there is an exhibition of Adel Abidin, which I find extremely interesting and worth seeing.

It is again very average, like every museum in Finland. Te art did not blow us away at all. If you have seen art in rest of Europe, you can easily give this a miss.
