Kulosaari metro station (Finnish: Kulosaaren metroasema, Swedish: Brändö metrostation) is a ground-level station on the Helsinki Metro. It serves the island district of Kulosaari in East Helsinki. There are 50 bicycle and 36 car parking spaces at the station.[1] Both lines M1 and M2 serve Kulosaari.

The station was opened on 1 June 1982, and is therefore one of the original stations on the system. Kulosaari underwent a facelift in 2011.[2] The station was originally designed by Jaakko Ylinen and Jarmo Maunula. It is located 1.8 kilometres from Kalasatama metro station and 1.4 kilometres from Herttoniemi metro station.
