I have been there many times but never inside one of the houses. I like to go there to get away from the busy city. It is really a tranquil place. You can find lots of beautiful places there where you can sit alone for...More
Visit Seurasaari if you are traveling in Helsinki in the wintertime. The museum island is pretty and you get a good view of what life was like when Finns lived in small wooden houses without running water, toilet or proper heating. In the summertime, these...More
If you are looking for a place to hide from everyday rush, this is the ideal spot. Beautifull island with a lot of squirrels running around. It's my favourite place in Helsinki. And don't forget to bring some nuts for the squirrels...:)
We had visited this place on our last day stay in Helsinki. It were initially bit confused to locate bus stop for bus 24 to take the bus although it was just opposite to tram stop next to Marks and Spencer building near the main...More
Nice to walk around even in the winter when it's cloudy and cold. Easy to reach by tram/bus/foot, and a lovely island with good paths to walk around for a couple of hours. Museum was closed when I visited, but you can still walk around...More
We had a snowy walk here just as the sun was setting. Pretty cold but worth it to see some old fashioned wooden architecture in this peaceful setting. Easy to reach with public transport. It must be extremely attractive in the sun too.
After spending 2 hectic days going to the sites of St. Petersburg, it was nice to walk the grounds of Seurasaari Island. Quiet, wooded walk through tall pines was totally relaxing. The old farmhouses, barns, and churches, brought from other places in Finland were fascinating...More
The charming island is open but the ancient houses are closed. Hopefully the sea is covered with ice that you can walk on, and the scenery beautifully white. But that is not guaranteed since winters have become milder.

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 reasons you'd need a "regional" fare is if you were visiting the nearby city of Espoo, or heading to the airport which is actually in the city of Vantaa. As long as your'e inside Helsinki, a standard ticket will work fine, and Seurasaari is inside of Helsinki's borders (although just). The Helsinki trams are all covered by a typical day ticket as well.
My husband and I will be meeting our tour group on July 25th late afternoon. We plan to arrive on July 23rd from the US, so are looking for just a couple of things to do on our own that aren't included in our sightseeing day with our travel company. They have us taking a city bus tour, and a visit to the Suomenlinna Fortress only, with another 1/2 day on our own. As we will have no car, I'm trying to plan our sightseeing for this short time before we head out to explore more of Finland,...More

Bus route 24 to Seurasaari. This bus route goes past the Sibelius monument, which is worth stopping at. A few random ideas: a boat tour of Helsinki harbor (please note: NOT 'Helsinski'). There are several of these leaving from Kauppatori market square quay at the end of Esplanadi Park, you can't miss them. There are many different tours available, just stroll along the shore and take your choice. Hietalahti flea market: nice place to people-watch for a couple of hours, have an outdoor...More
Visiting Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum (13 Replies)
My wife and I will be visiting Helsinki from a cruise ship on 9 August. We would like to visit Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum that morning. What is the best way to get there and back before 1230?
