As Finnish architecture is often quite boring, Oodi is a pleasant exception. It looks amazing, there is lots to see inside and from the balcony (3rd floor) there is a great view to the parlament house and music house.

I read about Oodi shortly after it opened, and when scheduling a work trip Helsinki made this top of the to-visit list. I visited on the evening of my arrival, a rainy Sunday. Maybe it was the weather, or there simply is not much else...More

A beautiful place to visit. Besides the usual books & media borrowing, there are other unique offerings. Sewing machines, 3D printers, small private meeting rooms, wonderful spaces to just lounge in. Helsinki's main library is truly awesome!

A nice modern library. Good architecture. Worth a stop in as a tourist. It is free. It is unfortunate that the designer covered the windows with white dots to obscure the view out the windows. This is primarily a functional library, not a tourist attraction....More

At the centre of the town. Really beautiful and light library, where you can find peaceful corners to just hang around and relax.

I think it's possible even without registration! The atmosphere is motivative for PhD ;) My subjective opinion - try it.
