Next autumn, Helsinki Olympic Stadium will open its gates after having undergone large repairs and renewal. The renewed Stadium will first be revealed to the public during the opening weeks when entrance is free of charge.
Next August and September, visitors will be able to have a look at everything that happened in the last four years. The public will also have the opportunity to peek at the stars’ corridor where the athletes and the artists pass, to test the seats in the stands and to follow the construction of large events settings. Or for instance, make a lap around the track. A special visitor’s day will be reserved for people who have donated to the Stadium and whose names are immortalised.
In addition to several Walk-In Days that are free of charge, the opening weeks will offer a diverse programme produced by the event organisers.
The Sports Museum has been renovated as well. The first changing exhibition will showcase the history of the Stadium from the reveries of the 1920s until 1952, the year of the Helsinki Olympic Games, and through many wonderful moments until the 2020 renewal. Entrance to the Sport Museum is free of charge for ages under 18. Visits to the Stadium tower are as usual subject to a small fee.
More information about the opening weeks will be disseminated before the end of the year and in the spring of 2020.
