Opening hours and tickets

The National Museum is temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus situation in the metropolitan region. We are looking forward to opening the museum as soon as possible.

Since August 2020, there is a new space for hosting events and workshops in the third floor of the National Museum. As a museum guest, you are welcome just to come in, sit down and relax there during the museum visit. Please, note that the workshop Vintti is now permanently closed.
