Ateneum Art Museum

Recommended
The collections of this museum chart Finnish art from the 18C to the 1960s. Finnish pictorial art is fairly recent, if you don't count the anonymous frescoes that decorated churches and were often lost with the walls on which they were painted. It was not until the mid-19C that a movement inspired by the Düsseldorf School flourished, giving rise to the National Romanticism that brought the country its first great painters. This national museum also shows works by international masters.
