Welcome to HAM Helsinki Art Museum!

We want to make your visit to the museum as successful and safe as possible. On this page, we have compiled information on our operations and some general instructions we ourselves follow and hope that all our visitors will also observe. Welcome to the museum – safely!


HAM limits the number of customers to ensure health safety. Please be prepared to queue upon arrival at the museum.

The museum requires a COVID-19 passport of all visitors aged 16 and over. Please download the passport before your visit and be prepared to prove your identity. The COVID-19 passport is verified by a Digital COVID Certificate scanning app that scans the QR code from a smartphone or from a printed certificate. We also accept COVID-19 passports issued outside the EU.

The COVID-19 certificate, or COVID-19 passport, is available from My Kanta at omakanta.fi.You can log in to My Kanta with your online bank codes (suomi.fi identification).You can either print the passport or display it on your mobile device (take a screenshot or save the file on your mobile phone).

If you are unable to use My Kanta, you can now pick up your COVID-19 certificate from a printing point in Itäkeskus, Kannelmäki or Malmi libraries in Helsinki, as well as from Central Library Oodi. The printing service is intended for people who do not have online banking codes or whose COVID-19 certificates in My Kanta are incomplete.

The printing points are open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 8:00–16:00 and on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00–18:00. People visiting the printing points must have their Kela card or personal ID with them.

Dear customer, this is how we are helping to prevent the spread of the coronavirus

Here at the Culture and Leisure Division, we value your and our employees’ health above all else. This is why we are asking you to comply with the following instructions, which we also abide by, when visiting us:

Even mild flu symptoms are a good reason to stay home
If you have any symptoms of flu, i.e. a runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache or fever, please stay home.

We wash our hands
The best way to avoid contracting the coronavirus is to wash your hands. That is why we are asking everyone to maintain good hand hygiene. Hand sanitiser and hand washing stations are available in our premises.

We maintain a safe distance
The virus is highly contagious when in close contact. If you see that there is a line to our cash or information desk, please wait a moment and make sure to keep a safe distance from the person in front of you.

We cough and sneeze properly
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put all used tissues in the rubbish bin immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use the top of your sleeve. Cleaning has been intensified.

We recommend face masks for everyone
Regardless of whether or not they are fully vaccinated, we recommend everyone who are over the age of 12 to wear a face mask, unless they cannot do so for health-related reasons. Please bring your own mask. HAM guides will be wearing masks on guided tours.

We follow current health and safety guidelines
We follow the current official guidelines for the coronavirus epidemic, as well as the health safety measures required by the Communicable Diseases Act.

Thank you for your cooperation!
