The Matinkylä metro station opened on Saturday 18 November 2017, when metro traffic on the Ruoholahti–Matinkylä section started up. The Matinkylä metro station construction contract was implemented by Lemminkäinen Infra Oy.
The design of the platform area ceiling was inspired by white clouds and frost. The ceiling surface is made up of alternating white aluminium plates. The Matinkylä metro station was designed by Arkkitehtitoimisto HKP Oy.

The metro station has two entrances: an east and west entrance. The east entrance connects to the shopping centre and bus terminal, and the west entrance leads to Suomenlahdentie and Tynnyritie.
The station and entrances are wheelchair-accessible.
