Le Monument Sibelius (finnois : Sibelius-monumentti) est une statue publique érigéé dans le Parc Sibelius du quartier de Töölö à Helsinki en Finlande,, dédiée au compositeur Jean Sibelius (1865-1957).
La statue est faite de 600 tuyaux et elle pèse 24 tonnes. Le monument fait 8,5 mètres de haut, 10,5 mètres de long et 6,5 mètres de large. C'est l'une des statues les plus visitées à Helsinki. Contrairement à ce que l'on pourrait croire les tuyaux ne représentent pas des grandes orgues mais des bouleaux, des arbres de la vie quotidienne finlandaise car Sibelius adorait la nature où il puisait son inspiration. L'œuvre a été admirée par les uns et critiquée par les autres qui voulaient un monument plus concret rappelant Sibelius. C'est ainsi que le portrait du musicien a été réalisé en acier, par un autre artiste, à côté de l'œuvre d'Elia Hiltunen.

Pretty nice monument dedicated to music. A tourist attraction at the Helsinki city, inside a beautiful park.

A monument closes to seaside. People can visit here, and then have a walk just following the path next to the seaside. A cafe is located in the small harbour; if you were not in rush, could stop at here and have a cup of coffee.

Monument in the park. Have a nice stroll in the park if you have time.

Intriguing Soviet era monument. The highly asymmetrical design is in contract with the uniformity and symmetrical Modernism architectural style of Helsinki at large. The Monument also serves as a throwback to Finland connection with the Soviet and Russia, and the complexity nature of the relationship.

Monument itself is fine. But lack of nameplates is awful. Who was this person? What he was famous for? This is why you need a nameplate on a monument.

Nice park with a couple monuments. Don't know if other monuments were covered under the snow but it doesn't take long to see everything.

Really nice monument in Helsinki, little bit far away from the city centre, But with the park it is in, it's worth to see it.

TBH its just a normal nice park as many others that you can see in many cities. I don't think the famous name made it anything special. but as a park itself its quite a nice place to take a walk，a run or just breath the fresh air and relax. Very beautiful lake, endless green and fantastic ice cream. Worth a visit, not for the name but for its beautiful nature View.

The Sibelus monument is a classic tourist attraction in a scenic Helsinki park. The monument itself is worth exploring from different angles and the park is a great place to relax in nature. It is a good idea to read information on the famous composer after which the monument is named to put the experience in to context.

A monument that beautifully captures the ethos of Finnish design and it's unique creativity. The "pipes" are a sight to behold from far, and even better up close. Walk up to them, touch, look though them up to the sky, notice the intricate patterns on the sides. There is greenery all around, and at least in the summer ducks and sundry birds all around, making the monument seamless with nature.

The monument itself was breathtaking and fun to walk around and underneath. It’s a popular place among tourists. The monument is situated in a nice park where there are also toilets and food stands, so you can easily spend an hour.

You need to know where it is or to be shown otherwise you would not go and see it. I wonder if sounds are created by the hollow tubes based on the wind? Something that o ly a local could answer. Lots of green space around, washrooms available nearby great place for a picnic or an afternoon stroll.

Amazing sculpture, very famous many people from Asia come to visit the sculpture. It was great to see them cos I'm in the process of learning Chinese and they could tell me some info about the statue, but I heard them say that music plays in the metal tubes which was only a myth.
