The Ateneum or Finnish National Art Gallery is a must-see in your visit to Helsinki. You'll see major Finnish works of art in addition to some other notable international works and special exhibitions. The Ateneum is right in the centre and not far from Helsinki Railway station. The wheelchair entrance is from the alley round the back via lift. If there's a queue for tickets, for example on buys days towards the end of an exhibition, they normally let wheelchairs to the front. Your assistant does not pay. There are lifts to all the major levels. It is worth seeing the building inside for the main staircase and other architectural features. There is a wheelchair-accessible toilet on the ground floor next to the cloakroom. There are steps to the café but you can get there by lift from the courtyard. The bookshop is quite cramped for wheelchairs.
