“Finland famous monument”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Came here by tram and stop at Töölöntori and walk about 15 minutes to locate the monument . Thanks to helpful locals to teach me the direction there . Pass by lots of housing area before I reach to the park . When I arrive there's not much tourist , just a few tourist and a few locals was there for picnic or just chilling around . Stop by for 15 minutes only to take some pictures and left by bus 24 , the bus stop is just outside the park ,heading back to city center

“Impressive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

It was difficult for me to find this place. I asked a local and she told me she had been living in the area for 7 years but never seen this monument. ?????
However, thanks to a kind old Finnish man who seemed bothered by the fact that there were too many tourists around this place, I found it eventually.
I have to say this monument is quite impressive. It was hard to take a proper photo since it was surrounded with tourists. They say if one is lucky on windy days, one can hear the music when standing under those metal pipes. I tried, but maybe it was not windy enough that day.
Well, aside from admiring it and taking photo with it, there's nothing much to do here though. Maybe, after a long walk, getting some ice cream (in front of the monument) and hanging around here would be nice during summer. There are plenty benches though.

“Incredible monument x 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

There are two monuments to Sibelius on this site. The official one which is a marvellous abstract sculture of vertical tubes with very detailed patterning and a more traditional bust of Sibelius nest to it. I was travelling with a CHoir and so we flash mobbed the tourists singing under the tubular sculpture. Interesting accoustic and very entertaining for those in attendance.

“Sibelius Monument Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

This monument is dedicated to the composer Jean Sibelius. It is made up of hollow steel pipers welded together. It is an abstract art to a waver like pattern. We were warned not to try putting our heads into the hollow pipes, as many people have got stuck into them. In the park there are ice cream vendors in case you feel like having it.
