This open air museum has old buildings which have been moved from all over Finland. It was eye opening how basic even the rich peoples homes were a couple of hundred years ago; clearly Finland has become a wealthy country in a relatively short time....More

I love these Scandinavian historic building open air museums. Skansen in Stockholm is the biggest and best, there's also the folk museum in Oslo. However, Seurasaari is also a fine example. Some really well preserved buildings, a beautiful island and plenty to keep a family...More

This is a unique way of understanding what life in Helsinki was like in the earlier periods. Big wooden houses, old churches, a constructed large boat, an old community sauna, etc. Very interesting.

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.

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).
