There are various residential buildings in Finland's past history. They can learn about Finland's traditional life and production. They have old farm implements, old wooden boats and old windmills to visit. Although the island is not very big, it has good scenery and rich content, and it is worth visiting.
This is like countryside in the middle of Helsinki city. Visiting Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum is an excellent idea for the day out for anyone who likes wooden buildings. Take buss 24 and walk over the bridge to a nice island park. You can go there at summer time for the open-air museum covering 1/4 of the island.
I like a museum very much. Although it is small, its space utilization is very good and its design is simple. The museum shows the history of the construction of Finland Castle and people's life on the castle. There are many audio-visual clips. When people are small, it feels very good to watch.
This is a small island near the center of town, easily reached by a bus that has a small open-air museum similar to Skansen. Although significantly smaller than Skansen, it seems more intimate and the docents are more likely to answer your questions. If you want to see the old Finnish building but don't want to go inside them, you don't have to pay the entry fee which only applies to going in the buildings. The open-air museum is just a fraction of the island. The rest is full of lovely hiking trails and vistas out onto the water. A great day out walking in nature.
Open-air museums, a lot of old wooden huts, the ecological environment is very good, the green area is large, weekend distraction good place.
