Very nice place to visit, old buildings from different places from Finland. Takes around 2-3 hours to walk there around. I recommend!

Seurasaari or Fölisön in Swedish is a delightful island only 5-8km from central town. From The Sibelius monument a lovely walk around 4km. Seurasaari is just not the whole experience, the walk there is part of the joy. Helsinki is such a small green city...More

Seurasaari is a great place for a stroll. It's for anyone who loves nature and history. As it is an island, it can be a bit windy. Take warm clothes with you. The paths are easy to walk so basic sneakers are just fine.

This place is to be outside and enjoy the open air experience and the nature, we were in autumn and IMO wasn't the best time to be there, nevertheless worth it

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

Another full day activity in Helsinki. If you are bringing a pram it is a little rough to walk around and you cannot get into everything so you will have to take turns. That aside, the staff are incredibly friendly and the museum offers a...More

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.
