The first experience of a ferry ride through the frozen Baltic was an excellent start to our visit. The Museum is excellent and the film on the history of Finland well worth stopping for.

Lovely place to walk around and have a look at traditional Finnish dwellings. The oldest Finnish wooden church, the Karuna Church, has been moved to Seurasaari island. Old farm houses, cotters farms, granaries and household buildings. Buy the ticket to see the houses inside as well.

A nice selection of traditional buildings of different types, relaxing walk through the island with viewpoints all around. Few cafes and a summer restaurant. Bring some nuts for the half tame squirrels.

This is a beautiful place where you can come and have a walk while seeing different things related Finnish culture. To see how they were living and what type of houses helps to understand how much everything has changed. Great for Summer time and specially coming with kids to enjoy a nice meal (in a restaurant or your own one...)

Historical place. Lot of buildings and cottages from around the Finland. There is lot of animals in the Island and also really nice church (there is lot of weddings in the summer time). It is nice place just walk and hanging around. You can find also some restaurants or you can take our own picnic with you.

Nice place for walking and calm down. Popular area, but not too crowded, I think. At mid summer you can enjoy of a bonfire over here.
