I have visited this place both in the summer and in the winter. It has charme on both periods, although I prefer summertime. The open-air museum is informative, but most of all the seaside is fascinating and walking down the island is worth any time of the day. It is also possible to use a barbecue.

Seurassi is only a short walk from my apartment and I visit it often. Its a great place to picnic, walk the dog, take photos or just to go and relax. I would say going in the summer is the best because it will be slightly harder to venture there when the ground is wet or covered in snow. Its... More

The island has good roads and trails to go around. The atmosphere is nice. It is like going almost 300 years back. The buildings are from the 18th to 20th centuries. You can also enjoy coffee and pastries (and ice cream!). Please use public transportation (bus 24) from Helsinki City South. The island is open during summer, from 15.5.2017.

We took a tram to the island and had a good walk around, everything was closed the day went but it was a pleasant walk even though below freezing.

We went at a poor timing at about 2plus in winter season, therefore there's only about 1 HR of daylight left. This place is huge and shd be given more time. Can start of with this attraction first before heading to the rest in the same area. It's all houses and buildings of the Folks from all over Norway regions... More

This is a lovely place to visit especially during summer days. My personal tip is to buy unsalted nuts (maapähkinä) and share them with squirrels, they're very tame and will come eat from your hand :) The birds prefer seeds but they too will come eat from your hand if you let them! Seurasaari can also be very beautiful during... More

Staying not far away from there we decided to visit it also. And haven't regret at all. Pay for entrance and get in. Very nice place to see. Lots of historical wooden buildings from the Finland countryside history. Most of those houses are open so you can enter and see then internally. In some of them the museum people are... More
