We visited this island and it offered us a nice outdoor walking activity. Here there are wooden houses. It is the place to get a feel of the traditional lifestyle of the local people.The outdoors and the nature is the other attraction.

This island is a nice place for the locals to bring their families for an outing. As for a tourist attraction I was on a guided tour with SBP tours, we did not receive any information about any structures or any demonstrations, I'm sure this...More

We had the good fortune of visiting Seurasaari during Helsinki Days, so there was no charge for entry and there were docents dressed in period clothing available to answer questions (and they spoke English). Seurasaari was a nice way to be out of doors in...More

Interesting in historical terms, but could do with better descriptions, dates and origin of the buildings, with a map of Finland to help.

Seurasaari is a wonderful place to spend a nice summer day in the nature close to the city. The open-air museum has some nice attractions, but going for a walk is just as nice. The island is full of animals like squirrels and birds that...More

There is something particularly wonderful about this place. It could be the mixture of a well-manicured park, with plenty of trees, sights, and small woodland creatures. Or the vast array of ancient wooden buildings from Finland's history, many of which are open on the inside...More

We will be in a cruise and in Helsinki from 8:30 in the morning until 5pm. How far is the open air museum from the center? It looks charming.

Hi, the trip from "Olympiaterminaali" takes 50 minutes either by bus 24 or tram 2 and 4. From another cruise harbour "Hernesaari" it is better to take a taxi. The trip takes 25 minutes (about 5 miles).
