This island is free to visit! There are buildings from all over Finland that have been brought here for preservation. It will take you several hours to see the island, so be prepared for a lot of walking and picture taking.

A simple trip on the No.24 bus from Sokkos or Errotaja to one of the most spectacular but low key places in Helsinki. A peaceful wander across a picturesque bridge into array of historical buildings that transport you back in time. While it was free to wander around, the extra fee (9 euro) to enter the various buildings on display... More

It's pleasant and easily accessible by bus from the central Helsinki. Pleasant to wonder and relax for a while and not too big. Good place to have a picnic but don't feed the local fauna! They are too tame already and might be a bit annoying. Remember to visit related Pukkisaari as well as it has small living history village,... More

Gently rolling terrain, centuries old wooden structures and occasional vistas of Helsinki over water made for a serene walk that is easily done by most. Our group included an 80 year old using walking sticks who was able to complete the entire walk. The highlight was a 400 year old church with amazing artwork inside. Our guide, Irina with SPB...

Lots of interesting historical Finnish buildings moved there amid a beautiful landscape. Excellent coffee and cardamom buns at the snack shop at the far end. Loved the squirrels.

Our tour guide walked with us through the grounds of this interesting village on the island of Seurasaari. Beautiful church which is still in high demand for locals to wed in.

Having already visited Suomenlinna on a previous trip, and knowing it’d be crowded on a warm July day, I hopped on the bus and went to Seurasaari Island instead. It was very peaceful and lovely. Locals use the island for walks and runs and you can see all the buildings’ exteriors for free but I recommend buying a museum ticket... More

We had a really good and interesting visit here today. We liked the different houses there and felt we learned more about Finland through visiting the houses and reading the information. We also think the people working there had good information to give when we asked questions. It was a nice setup with beautiful nature. We also had a good... More
