Seurasaari Island - Review

Although it is perhaps better known for the open air museum on the island, SeurasaariIsland itself is a real sight to be beheld. It is very popular with the locals as a getaway spot but it is also slowly becoming an option for the tourists to this island as well.

The SeurasaariIsland has an amazing bounty of nature that is worth seeing. Rare species of flowers and plants make this a nature lover’s paradise. Some species which are endemic to the island like certain species of squirrel are also unique to it. The green, verdant place is certainly an idyllic hangout spot.

But that isn’t where it ends. Being an island it also has some spectacular beaches. These are perhaps its foremost attraction especially in summer. There is also a common barbeque area in case you are famished. Moreover, the place is always lined with small vendors selling delicious street food as well as ice cream and drinks. Be sure to visit this one with family or friends.

Seurasaari Island, Helsinki Reviews

  • Beautiful scenery. It's a hub of nature only 20 minutes from the city center, with plenty of small beaches to enjoy quietly. The entrance to the island is free, and you can choose to visit the museum (old Finnish houses) for a fee. The island is also covered in forest and there are a lot of animals (ducks, geese, squirrels). A good place to spend an afternoon!

  • Well kept place and nice initiative! Few tips for visitors - the birds are quite friendly so if you just put your hand out, they come and sit on it! Please do not feed the birds - it can potentially make them sick. There is a restaurant inside and it is quite expensive (food is not great for what it costs). There were also numerous wasps just outside the restaurant and my toddler got stung.. ouch!!

  • Such a wonderful park! A few steps from the city centre, a magical place with an unique outdoor museum surrounded by nature. Very peaceful. Highly recommanded.

  • A beautiful island which filled with Finnish history and amazing nature scene. Seurasaari is a open field museum. Recommended more in the summer when the museum houses are open. But in the winter it's beautiful as well to enjoy the frozen sea. It's free entrance but to see the houses from the inside it's cost.

  • Such a wonderful island with opportunities to take nice relaxing walks and get away from the city. The view to the sea from the small beaches and cliffs can be breathtaking, especially during the sunset. Also, there are some well preserved old Finnish buildings that are definitely worth checking out. Lastly, fun fact; the squirrels there are tame and come and eat from your hand if you bring nuts or something little for them to eat, so an awesome experience for kids as well!
