I love going for short trips or walks there, especially before or after the summer season. In the heart of Helsinki, Seurasaari has a vibe of a tiny Finnish village 100 years ago. Bonus: lively, almost domesticated squirrels, and a nice restaurant. There is a...More

Spend a morning there. Very relaxing and interesting to see how people lived back in the days. Good combination of walking and education.

85 buildings have been moved here. Different eras. Fun to walk into some. Reminds one of Shelburne or a colonial village in US.

We were invited to a concert by SonorEnsemble at the church on Seurasaari. It was the opportunity to take a walk around the island and learn more about Finnish history.

We visited using our Helsinki Card, so we didn't have to pay admission. But, I think it would have been well worth it if we had paid separately. The buildings that were open the day we visited were really neat and it was cool to...More

After all those open-air museums around Scandinavia and Nordic countries you will eventually get tired of them so you might as well just visit one and get the whole picture. This one though is very expensive however exhibition is nice.

Yes you can cycle to Seurasaari. Indeed the best cycling way follows the coast-line. On the road you have the Hietalahti market Place, big old cemetery, The Sibelius monument in a lovely park and a small cafe cottage just on... More

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).
