We visited during early spring so the island was not at its best. We enjoyed viewing and reading about the buildings brought from all over Finland. Saw plenty of squirrels. I'm sure it's an amazing place in the summer.

Having visited similar museums in other countries, this one left me underwhelmed. The Open-Air Museum is a nice place to walk. Seusaraari Island is beautiful. Many old wooden buildings from across Finland were transplanted here. They're generally well preserved. However, I was hoping the museum...More

A very popular jogging place for locals with many forest paths going around and across the island. There are also several viewpoints to the sea and nearby islands. Lots of wildlife as well and the friendly (albeit greedy) squirrels are one of the main attractions....More

Seurasaari is a beautiful island to visit in the summer. It's not too far from the center of Helsinki, and buses go there. If you're looking for natural beauty close to the city center, look no further!

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.
