Seurasaari Open-Air Museum / Seurasaari Museo al aire libre / Musée en plein air de Seurasaari

In English:

When in Helsinki You should visit Seurasaari island. It is only few kilometers from the heart of Helsinki and it can be reach by bus easily. Why? There are preserved old buildings having them 87 totally. The island itself is very beautiful and many small paths surrounded by gorgeous nature are enjoyable. In this post I visit some old historical building. So start the time travel thru my photos.

  1. I really enjoyed looking at your beautiful photos, as they are very interesting. I almost felt like I was there, but in reality I was here in Australia. It is wonderful to take an armchair travel tour to your beautiful country. What era are the museum displays from ?

    • Hello Linny.

      After it what You wrote, I am sure that I succeeded with my post. I tried to present it in following way: entering the island, presenting old building inside and outside with things which were used in historic days, taking a coffee break etc. The museum presents our living and buildings from in the late 1600s to the 1900s. My photos presented only a small part of this museum. The museum and the island require half a day for a quick tour and one could easily spend there all the day. Thank You for Your comment.

      Have a great day!

  2. I could easily spend an entire day there enjoying seeing and studying everything! I am always fascinated at the wood working that was done there. They were wonderful carpenters through all of the times!

    • Hi Terry.

      Thank You. These kinds of museums are “best time travel”.

      It is quite warm (41.0ºF) Friday morning here, no rain but windy and that means we must go outside to “ventilate the lungs”. As I mentioned earlier the autumn has been here very, very rainy.

      • For your interest – there is also a similar “village” “grouping” of historic buildings set in woodland and run as a “living museum” about 25kms outside of Archangelski, Russia. The buildings have been transported in from far and near into this natural setting. It helps you get an understanding of exactly how people lived previously. (they may be the ones that had it right!)

        • This open-air museum has been built the same way. Buildings collected and erected again on this island around Finland. In my next post You see living history in Russia when we sought my wife’s roots on former Finland’s area which we lost in WW2.

    De très beaux objets et meubles exposés.
    Deux édifices (1 et 38) ont un style surprenant, et j’avoue préférer les autres cabanes, plus rustiques !
    Merci pour cette nouvelle belle découverte.
    Bises et bon week-end

  8. Those photos are wonderful. I can almost smell the fragrance of the forest, water and the touch of mustiness from the old buildings. Reminds me so much of similar museums here that are recreations of Norwegian settlements. So rich in history and simpler times, although I most certainly do not want to retreat to such times—just appreciate them!!!! Thank you for the post!

      So interesting to read Your comment. It is wonderful that people have saved their history in museums. I love to see the comparison between the old and the modern era. One good example is if we look at the photo 21. My late father made these kinds of pack backs. They are made from birch bark.

  11. Yes, thank you for the trip. How dark the old buildings were with all the wood everywhere. The “fancy” house was very nice and I love the green tiled heater/furnace. Beautiful work as always! I appreciate your sharp photography skills in low light conditions and your story from the church how you keep still.

  13. This is definitely a beautiful place and worthy of a visit. I was amazed at the different architectural styles that are present in the museum — the buildings must span many years. I was pleased to see that they are open for visitors to go inside. That windmill is also fascinating.

  21. They were wonderful craftsmen. The pottery is so smooth and colorful. The table cloth looks like a form of weaving I do called Swedish Lap weaving. Very nice and enjoyable post.

    Comment by kareninhonolulu — November 3, 2012 @ 21:07 | Reply

    • Hi Karen.

      Thank You. I am glad that You enjoyed this post. What comes to “Swedish Lap weaving”, it may be true, because we were under the Swedish rule from the 1100s until 1809. After that we were Grand Duchy of Finland under the rule of Russian Empire. We gained our independency in 1917. Being so long time ruled by other cultures must have great influence to our culture having influences from West and East.

      Have a great day!

        • Hi Karen.

          I am happy that You did like the glimpse from our history. Although we were so long time under rules of foreign countries we have our own language which is one of the most difficult languages in the world. It was “already” in the 1500’s when we got our own written language. There is only one person: Mikael Agricola – father of the Finnish written language to whom we are the debt of gratitude.

          I wanted to present the name Mikael Agricola, because in my next post, we are searching the roots of my wife. Her roots are in former Finland which we lost in WW2. Mikael Agricola died at the same area where wife’s roots are. So in my next post be prepared to see how that former part of Finland has changed since 1944 or did it change, that’s the question.

          Have a great beginning of the week!

  24. These photos were fascinating. The wooden interiors are similar to anything we saw when we visited the Open Air Museum near Salzburg. It makes you realise how similar the culture has been all over Europe. I loved the nailless fence too, we call these flat pack fences and they’re still used today!

    • Hello Anna.

      Thank You for You nice comment. What comes to “flat pack fences” as You call them, there are on our countryside here and there them. Even one company makes them to those who love traditions. In Finnish we call it “riukuaita” and in English it is round pole fence. In my About me-page I have a photo from more beautiful with a shadoof. Thank You telling about the museum near Salzburg. Some day we again start our car holidays in Germany and we might visit Austria also at same time.

      Oh, I am sorry for the weather. This summer and fall it has been raining huge amount of water – very exceptional. I have experience from summer when I photographed Poor-man statues which are unique in the whole world. I had heavy camera in one hand and in other hand I held my umbrella. My photos are published in the beginning of next year.

Are the buildings oroginal buildings from this site – or are the moved from other places in Finland? (Buildings in “my” museum are almost all separated into pieces, numbered -a nd the moved and rebuilt here….. http://www.dengamleby.dk/eng/den-gamle-by/

    • Hello Truels.

      Buildings are original, but moved from other places in Finland. I do not how, but I think that same way as You tell it is done in Denmark. Well, so nice to read that this post had great interest for You.

      Happy Tuesday!

  29. I’ve been to Helsinki twice now and still never made it out to Seurasaari. Thanks for sharing the pictures! I imagine Seurasaari was built with much the same idea that Skansen in Stockholm was built?

  30. Love the interiors of those cabins…and the details of things like pots and pans and spinning wheels…

  32. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of the pots and pans, but so many of your pictures were interesting, and wonderful to see. I would certainly love to visit this very interesting looking museum some day.
