“Perfect Music House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

It was May, 1st 2014. Great holiday in Finland.
There was traditional short concert in Musiikkitalo. This music hall sounds amazing. It is difficult to compare with some other. And very interesting architecture inside. Beautiful place in Helsinki. Must visit!

“Spring Programme for 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

New Helsinki Music centre is offering great program in the great hall and smaller venues. And the house itself is a calm spacious place to visit and enjoy the atmosphere and architecture and visit the good music store on the upper level.

“Great music centre in the heart of Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Helsinki Music Centre (Finnish: Helsingin Musiikkitalo) is a big and pretty newly built music center in the heart of Helsinki. The building is mainly made of copper and glass. It's a wonderful and green building, near the beautiful Töölönlahti (Toolo Bay). The building maybe don't seem enormous from the street, but the truth is that most of the whole construction is underground! There are many different, bigger and smaller, halls and areas inside, and the architecture is gorgeous!
The music centre was a great investment, and it has been very successful and popular. There are really a lot of events every single day. You can see and listen to a big variation of music, concerts and other performances there, and I heartily recommend it for tourists as well as for the city's residents! You can enter the building for free, if you want to walk around in the main hall, and go to the café, but otherwise you need to pay a ticket. Enjoy!

“It does not look good, but...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Music Center looks like a cartoon box outside, but it is a marvelous place to listen to music. The acoustics is very good and the design of the big hall is ingenious. At the Center there are different halls for different purposes: chamber music, small groups, etc. At the big hall there are 1700 seats; therefore it is mostly for symphony concerts - but sometimes even for rock. I have only had good seats, but I have heard that some seats are bad. Generally it is a very good experience.
