A look at Finnish way of life in the past.
Seurasaari is an open-air museum located on an island a few miles away from the busy city center. Locals visit the island for fresh air, pick-nicks and swimming. You feel like you would be in the country side, far away from today's world.
The open-air museum was created in tbe early 20th century. Different buildings were brought to the island from different parts of Finland. The oldest building dates back to 1685.
Seurasaari open-air museum is open from May 5 to September 15, from 11 am to 5 pm. You can, during this time, visit the different buildings and experience how the life was in the 18th and 19th century. During the rest of the year the buildings can only be seen from the outside. No entry ticket is required when the museum is closed. You can still look at the different buildings from outside.
