Seurassari Open-air Museum

Helsinki, Finland

Seurasaari Open-Air Museum is a place for visitors of all ages. When you arrive on the island, you are immediately transported to a rural landscape from the olden days, far away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Take a peek at life in days of yore in smoke cabins, crofts, and manors, participate in a guided tour, have a closer look at the renovated parsonage and its garden, and immerse yourself in history with a hands-on approach. You can also sample some treats in the museum café and pay a visit to the renovated museum shop, where you will find unique products that convey the atmosphere of the museum. All of the buildings in the Open-Air Museum have been brought in from various parts of the country – there is a good reason to call Seurasaari ‘rural Finland in miniature.’ In the summertime, the Seurasaari Open-Air Museum hosts events such as arts and crafts markets, children’s independent tours and workshops for the entire family.
