The Ateneum art museum’s Pablo Picasso exhibit has become the museum’s most popular show of all time. The exhibition winds down on Thursday.

By Thursday some 308,000 visitors had flocked to the exhibition, which presents all periods of the artist's work.

The Picasso exhibit has nudged Albert Edelfelt off the 305,000 all-time Ateneum visitor record, which was set in 2005.

Marja Istala-Kumpulainen, a spokesperson for the museum, says record ticket sales have made the exhibition financially viable.

To meet the high demand, Ateneum is extending opening hours until midnight on Thursday, the last day of the exhibition.
