“Not much inside the stadium.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Though there is not much to see inside the stadium except the tracks and fields, the tower is worth a climb. It gives lovely views of the city from the top. And its very economical. The top of the tower is small. But it provides excellent views from the top. But they r nt marked.

“Not really worth the visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

An old Olympic stadium, not really much to see. Even during the European Championships (athletics), when we visited, not much was going on here! If you are in the neighbourhood, pop by just to see it, but don't go out of your way!

“great view, otherwise for sports/olympics fans”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The Tower has reopened and the view over Helsinki is great. There are no signs on the sides, so be sure to bring a map with you. The fee is reduced if you combine it with a visit to the olymipic museum that houses a large collection of Sports memorabilia. For people that have been to similar museums in Lausanne or Barcelona this is small, but quite niceoly complementing as there is a focus on early games and winter games.
In the entry level there is a possibility to send an up to 60 second video tube message to friends or connect it to your twitter for free.

“Unique stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Too many stadiums (old and new) around the world are devoid of all feeling, and in this crowd Helsinki Olympic Stadium stands (well, barely at least) tall and proud. The stadium is architecturally unique (and not only due to its wooden front), but the interior is unfortunately not fit for modern sporting events. However, the stadium will go through a complete interior renovation by 2018 after which it'll be a fantastic venue to visit.

“nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Just an old stadium for track&field sports that used to host olympic games in '52... with a high tower (in finnish scale). I can't believe why anyone would get excited about the place! The view is good from the tower, that's about it.
