This small island (which is very easy to reach by public transport and walking via little bridge) is full of old finnish buildings and amusements to children esspecially during summertime and the highlite is midsummerparties.

Seurassari Island is a kind of open air museum of traditional Finnish architecture. But you don't have to pay for the entrance. You can enjoy nice walking through the forest slowly for a goom morning exercise or afternoon rest escaping from the summer heat.

This was our first nature experience in Europe- arriving from Australia a day or two before- we loved it! The history- stories told on boards, beautiful old buildings, flowers, wildlife made it special. We will go back again to this cleverly designed Museum- the Finns are good at many things- and this is , I think , is one of... More

I've visited this island with my friend on our last night in Helsinki. It was the day after midsommar so we went there for an evening walk. The island is just beautiful and peaceful. I did not visit the open air museum, but just a walk around the island is great. I'm happy I could explore this part of Helsinki.

If the weather allows, don't miss this place while visiting Helsinki. This outdoors museum was built by bringing all the antique houses and structures from all over Finland, in order for people to see in just one walking-distance island, all the history through these wooden structures. In the summer people can swim in the nice beaches of Seurasaari, and enjoy... More

I love Seurasaari in summer and have spent lots of time here. Good place for just enjoying the sea, but also for jogging, picknicking and watching the old buildings from different parts of Finland. Beautiful and green island near the centrum.

If you visit Helsinki in the winter, the sea freezes and you can walk on the ice around Seurasaari Park. Beautiful wooden houses, great place for the outdoor activities and nature lovers in Helsinki

Take a nice walk at Seurasaari. Seurasaari is a popular museum island in Helsinki city on the western side . The island has been operating since 1909 outside the museum , which has been moved to the old wooden buildings from all over Finland. There are a lot of squirrels so take some nuts with you.

You can reach this island without getting on a boat, there's a bridge. The island is small: you can walk all around it in a couple of hours, but there is a very nice Open-Air Museum, which gives you a bit of Finnish history. Great place to spend a sunny day or a snowy one.
