Seurasaari Open-Air Museum

Listed under Museums in Helsinki, Finland.

Pin It

Four centuries of traditional Finnish living have been preserved from all over the country and are now on display on Seurasarri Island. Not a museum in the traditional sense, the Open-Air Museum is an amalgamation of 17th century churches, 20th century farmsteads, and a huge variety of buildings that span the hundreds of years in between. A walk around the property reveals eighty-seven historical structures, placed in natural settings and creating the feeling that one has somehow walked back in time.
