Small parties

Organise a party surrounded by national treasures!

Ateneum Höijer and Kiasma Room are ideal for smaller birthday parties, weddings, graduations and anniversaries for 5-6 persons. Catering can be ordered from the museums’ restaurants.

You can also order an inspiring guided tour or art moment with an expert guide, who can reveal new perspectives on familiar art and environments.

Cocktail events

The Ateneum Bistro courtyard, Cubus on the 3rd floor of Ateneum, or the Kiasma Theatre foyer are ideal for cocktail parties in a dignified museum setting.

A guided tour of one of the exhibitions is a great way to set the right atmosphere.

Cocktail treats and traditional canapés can be ordered from the museums’ restaurants together with sparkling wines.


Larger banquets can also be hosted in the museums of the Finnish National Gallery. Approximately half of the normal capacity of the museum spaces is available for rent.

Our impressive restaurant facilities are ideal for dinners. Ateneum Bistro can seat 60 persons and Kiasma Café 55 persons.

The Seminar Room at Kiasma converts into an impressive banqueting space for 35 persons, and it can also be connected to the adjacent foyer. Standing catering can be arranged in the foyer, lobby and café at Kiasma also for larger parties.

Would you like to combine your banquet with a private tour of one of our exhibitions outside museum hours? Find out more.

Art for your party

A museum setting offers unique art experiences that add content to your party!

Order a guided tour of our impressive art collections.  Together with an expert guide you and your guests learn new things, get involved and have a good time. Customers who book space also get free admission to the museum on the day of the event.

Performances and speeches can be held in an auditorium or theatre – a stage is the perfect place to make a toast, present a talk or award prizes. Small musical performances can also be arranged in our smaller spaces.
