The Finnish National Gallery collections

The Finnish National Gallery is the home of Finnish art and its mission is to promote cultural heritage and artistic education. We have the pleasure and honour of managing Finland's national art collection and related archives, as well as three of the country's most renowned museums. Come and discover art treasures at the Ateneum Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and the Sinebrychoff Art Museum, or find a whole new way to experience art online, when it suits you.

The National Gallery’s collections include more than 60 000 works of art: paintings, sculptures, printmaking, photography, installations, films and valuable documents such as artist’s letters and audio recordings.  

These artworks are not just hidden away in warehouses, but live on in the museums’ daily work. The Finnish National Gallery’s collection can also be seen in the country’s most important buildings, offering unique art experiences for all art lovers. The collection of the State Art Commission, on the other hand, is open to the public in state-owned buildings around Finland and the rest of the world.  

The future is also digital, which is why we have launched the Digital Finnish National Gallery programme (2022–2024), which will bring the collection of artworks online. This will allow you to experience the magic of art, anytime, anywhere. Join us on a virtual art tour and dive deep into the world of art!
