Seurasaari Open-Air Museum, which opened in 1909, 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 good reason to call Seurasaari ‘rural Finland in miniature.’
In the summer time, the Seurasaari Open-Air Museum hosts events such as arts and crafts markets, children’s independent tours and workshops for the entire family.
