“Poor service facilities”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Nice and old but crowdy when you want to buy something or go to men's room. Atmosphere is goon though.

“Great old stadium gives you an olympic experience”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Travelled to this location and paid my 5 euros for entry. I took the elevator to the top of the tower. At the top it gives you 360 views all over helsinki. the tower is next to the stadium and it also gives you a birds eye view of the stadium.
.
I went back down and entered the stadium. You can walk around the grand stands and if your lucky you get to run on the track.
.
Inside the stadium there are some great photo opportunities and I highly recommend going to this tourist attraction.

“Museum very small”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The Finish sports museum at the olympic stadium is quite expensive for what is actually in there. There are some interesting things here, medals and clothes but can be done in a few minutes. I was not aware that you could go up the olympic tower which was not signposted well or advertised.

“Olympic Games 1952”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Wonderful athmosphere. Finnland was supposed to get the Olympic Games in 1940. Due to the second WW, this dream was cancelled. After the war the dream game true in 1952. Paavo Nurmi brought the olympic torch to the stadium in the opening seremony.

“A tower with a view!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We visited on a day when the stadium was not in use. We viewed it from ground floor level, then took the lift (small charge) to the top of the tower for the most spectacular views over the complex and the city as far as the port and beyond.
The word "legacy" has been over-used re the London Games, but this is an example of how to create a legacy. The main stadium is surrounded by sports facilities, which were being used by schoolchildren during our visit and are available to the public as well as to local teams.
Take your camera up that tower!
