This place is serene. A wonderful setting for this museum. You can take it at your own pace and see as much or as little as you like. The old buildings are great to see.

A nice collection of old buildings from different parts of Finland that have been transferred here. Worth a visit especially if the weather is nice as it is situated on a nice little island.

Thus is an absolutely beautiful place to spend the day. You can walk through shaded pathways and enjoy both the woods and the shoreline. There are plenty of benches for sitting, a small sandy beach and several cafes. For a nominal fee you can buy...More

Very beautiful island covered with trees, walking paths and old houses. Buy the 9 Euro tickets to go inside the houses, worth it. The restaurant in the middle of the island serves better food then I expected. Not very cheap (15 for a burger with...More

We were there on Midsummer's Day and it was cold and wet, but the island is an attractive mix of trails and trees. The typical buildings brought from all over Finland are attractive and give a good idea of how life could have been. The...More

Really nice wooded setting and we'll set out. Worth paying the small fee to go into the houses. The atmosphere added to by staff dressed in period dress and very ready to answer questions and also very knowledgeable.

Seurasaari island is easy to reach from the city centre. We opted to take a taxi which took ten minutes and cost about ten euros - well worth it so we could conserve our energy for walking around the island itself and better value than...More

We went on a showery evening after the museums closed. If you don’t want the tour, which we didn’t, the evening is a perfect time to go. This is especially true in the summer when the sun sets so late. The 24 bus was easy...More

The 24 Bus is included in the day ticket, as it's route remains entirely in Helsinki. As other reviewers have pointed out, the "regional" fare only kicks in if you head out of the city. For visitors, the two most likely... More

The only bits that are closed are the building interiors. You can still walk through the buildings, and that's worthwhile doing. THe island is very beautiful and worth a visit in its own right.
