About us

The Ateneum Art Museum will be closed to the public due to ventilation renovation starting 28 March 2022. The museum shop, the Ateneum Bistro and the research library will also be closed during the renovation. The museum will reopen in early 2023 (the date to be announced separately).

For the safety of our customers and staff, we pay special attention to hygiene. Please help us by visiting only if you're feeling healthy, wash your hands, and keep others at a safe distance.

A warm welcome, we've been waiting for you!


Ateneum Bistro is a cozy café-restaurant inside the art Museum. With us you can enjoy traditional café products, lunch, as well as a variety of refreshments and wines. We also serve Afternoon tea.


The bistro hosts a variety of events, such as live talks and club evenings featuring interesting artists. Most of the events are open to everyone. More information about the events and admission tickets can be found on the Ateneum art museum's website.


We serve museum visitors and external customers according to the museum's opening hours.

Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is one of Britain’s most prestigious food traditions. Afternoon tea has been a part of British food culture for hundreds of years. This delightful tradition is considered a small afternoon pick me up that the help of with one can endure until dinner. Afternoon tea usually consists of small sweet treats and savoury snacks such as sandwiches, not forgetting, of course, the British national drink - tea.

We wanted to bring the afternoon tea concept in an updated version to the picturesque Ateneum Art Museum. Think of afternoon tea as a peaceful (and delicious!) moment amidst the hustle and bustle of the city - take a moment to pamper yourself.
