Seurasaari Open-air Museum

Seurasaari is an island to the west of Helsinki, accessible by road and boat. Its open-air museum began as early as 1909, when the first of its rescued traditional buildings from all over Finland were re-erected here.

There are now 87 buildings on the site – including cottages, manor houses, farmsteads, windmills and a watermill, a smithy, a wooden church and a parsonage. The buildings are open during the summer months, when costumed museum staff demonstrate old crafts and folk-dancing.

The charming, wooded parkland, threaded with walking trails, is open all year round.
