Mannerheimintie renovation project has started between Kiasma and the Opera House. The Mannerheimintie renovation project is estimated to last about 1,5 years until September 2024, in this street section. After that the renovation area will move further north between the Opera and Reijolankatu.

Pick-up and drop-off
We recommend that all visitors with restricted mobility use the Kansalaistori Square entrance to access Musiikkitalo. The nearest disabled parking spaces can be found on the bottom level of the Aimo Park Finlandia multi-storey car park which offers direct lift access to the Musiikkitalo Main Foyer.
Musiikkitalo has been designed with the needs and comfort of all our visitors in mind and offers level access throughout. All our floors are served by a lift. Wheelchairs are available to borrow from our Visitor Information Centre, and there are disabled toilet facilities on every floor. Tactile and braille signage is installed throughout, including at floor level.
The concert hall is fitted with fixed induction loops in seating areas C, S, N and T. Portable induction loops are available for all other areas. To use the induction loop, select the Musiikkitalo auditorium you’re visiting. Our staff are on hand to help if you require assistance with the induction loop.
Musiikkitalo’s main partners, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sibelius Academy, offer a free companion seat to disabled visitors for all our in-house concerts. Please note that arrangements for events run by other organisers may vary.
Guide and support dogs
We look forward to welcoming both you and your guide or support dog at Musiikkitalo! You can always choose to have your dog in the auditorium with you. Alternatively, they can be looked after in our staffed guide dog park in the main foyer.
You can download one of our communication boards to help you. Our Customer Information Centre also has five communication boards that are available to borrow.
At Musiikkitalo, we advise all our visitors to avoid using strong perfumes as this makes a big difference to those with asthma or a fragrance sensitivity.
