Instructions for a safe visit
We have compiled instructions to ensure a safe visit to Kunsthalle Helsinki that we ask all visitors to respect.
Please arrive healthy and maintain a safe distance
You are welcome to Kunsthalle Helsinki as long as you feel healthy. Please maintain a safe distance and give space also to others. The Kunsthalle foyer has arrows to mark the route for moving around the exhibition and to remind visitors of proper distancing. The Kioski giftshop’s interior has also been simplified to allow for more space to move around. If we are temporarily at full capacity, we will pause the intake of visitors and announce this at the main entrance. Please wait for your turn outside and enter only when granted permission. We recommend visiting the cloakroom only one person at a time. Outdoor clothing and bags can also be brought with you to the exhibition rooms. We advise to prioritise paying with a card and to avoid using cash.
We strongly recommend using a face mask. You can buy an individually packaged, disposable face mask from our ticket office.
Please come with clean hands
Wash your hands whenever needed or use hand sanitiser. We have disinfectant points in the main and the back lobby and by the elevator. Remember to cough or sneeze into your elbow and to avoid unnecessarily touching surfaces. Please also refrain from touching the artworks.
We are taking care of tidiness and cleanliness
We are taking enhanced care of cleanliness at Kunsthalle Helsinki, and our staff are wearing gloves and keeping their distance from you. We have removed co-used appliances and equipment. The ticket counter and the Kioski gift shop have protective glasses at the check-out. You are also free to use cleaning supplies yourself to clean surfaces during your bathroom visit. Remember to close the lid of the toilet before flushing.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!

Exceptions in hours
During the last days of Patricia Piccinini’s exhibition, Kunsthalle is open from 11am to 8pm from Wed 21st to Sun 25th October.
Free admission during the first Wednesday of the month has been temporarily cancelled.
Exceptions in opening hours always during the last exhibition week (from Thursday to Sunday until 8pm)
The accessible entrance is through the Kunsthalle’s backyard. Turn to the backyard at Ainonakatu 3 (by the entrance to the Finnjävel restaurant), and you will find the entrance and a doorbell at the far end. Please take the elevator up to the second-floor galleries, which are completely accessible. Assistance dogs are most welcome. Unfortunately neither the lobby nor Kioski shop are fully accessible. Please consult our friendly staff.
Restaurant Finnjävel will reopen its doors on Ainonkatu on Monday 1 June. We have been looking forward to seeing you all again. We think it is the most wonderful thing to pamper you with Finnjävel’s food and drinks in a real restaurant environment. Finnjävel has two spaces:
Salonki, where traditional fare takes new sophisticated forms. The Salonki takes visitors on an experiential voyage through Finnish traditions and stories. The Menu Finnjävel tv show on MTV3 follows the planning of the current menu, its ingredients and the lovely people our chefs Tommi Tuominen and Henkka got to meet. Reservations: https://finnjavel.fi/salonki/varaus/
Sali is like a day by the lake or sea in Finland. You can enjoy treats in a more relaxed manner in a cozy atmosphere. Dishes include smoked fish with the summer’s first potatoes – which has become a favourite in our home delivery service. In addition, our café caters to Kunsthalle Helsinki’s visitors and we also offer a takeaway lunch. Reservations: https://finnjavel.fi/salonki/varaus/
We have committed to creating the best possible atmosphere for both our customers and our staff. We prefer that you pay with card orApple Pay, Google Pay or MobilePay.
We wish to make every restaurant visit a safe and memorable one for both our customers and our staff. Due to the current situation, we have made some changes to the way we operate. We escort our visitors through the whole restaurant experience.
Please only come to Finnjävel if you are healthy. We will make sure that we will only serve you while we are in good health. Please wait for us to seat the customers before you before you enter. We have cut down our capacity in half and we take in new diners table by table. We have paid special attention to seating and our aim is to avoid hosting different groups at the same table. During the dinner, we will minimise contact and prepare everything as much as possible in the kitchen area. We wear gloves and we take special note of cleaning our spaces. We prefer contactless payment and also ensure that our payment devices are wiped clean after each transaction. We clean the whole restaurant space thoroughly with care at the end of each day.
Wishing you a warm welcome!
