“One of Finland's many masterpieces”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

The beauty of the concept against the bay is breathtaking. Alvar Aalto was inspired even more than usual when he designed this edifice. Worth looking at and taking in the view even from outside.

“Outside or inside?”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

From the outside it's an architectural masterpiece of striking beauty. Inside it's "interesting" but here and there a bit bland - nevertheless, the tours are worth taking. The big problem comes when it's used for concerts. The acoustics in the main concert hall are awful. A singer with face pointing towards you is audible, but if they turn their face the sound almost disappears. The rather odd shape of the concert hall and the "acoustic tower" have caused problems from the outset. The very new concert hall a short distance away now allows Finlandia Hall to be appreciated for its architecture and used more appropriately as a conference centre.

“A master piece architect”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

A masterpiece architect by Alvar Aalto, that hosts events such as congress or, entertainment, exhibitions. There no such piece anywhere else than in Helsinki. I recommend for tourists, it is worth visiting.
