We spent several hours wandering the pathways, carefully considering the transplanted houses, storehouses, tarboats etc in an inspiring display that cost us nothing at this time of year. Red and grey squirrels emerged almost on cue to be fed, photographed and admired.

A short trip over on the ferry to visit the island. We started with cake and homemade cake and then set off to explore the island.

Interesting history, great views, enough space for children fun and running and small climbing. :-) Close to restaurants and cafes. Good parking space. Relaxing.

We visited in March, when the open air museum was closed. This didn't stop us - we could still walk around and we loved looking at all the incredible buildings and seeing lots of red squirrels! And best of all it was free! If you like exploring - turn right at the beginning of the bridge (heading towards the island)... More

This place has been one of our favorite. There is ample space for a nice stroll in the afternoon. The historic buildings add to the ambience. One can find ducks walking around, squirrels nibbling food you throw, etc. This gives a feel of being in touch with Nature. It has a calm and serene atmosphere to visit and relax.

Seurassari island it's a very beautiful island, but I think it's better to visit in summer when all the open spaces of the island are green and it's possible to make a picnic. It's a mandatory place to see in Helsinki.

I usually walk my dogs around the island. Takes about an hour. Wooden buildings are awesome. There's usually a fire at a small kiosk, where you can grill sausages. In winter they have nearby also the round sledge. Interesting place with Finnish history

Seurasaari is a great place to go for a walk, especially around Christmas time, as there are loads of activities in the island and you might be able to walk the ice path that leads there, if the weather permits. If not, loads of friendly squirrels and birds will come to your hand for a seed in exchange =)
