  • Finnish natural in a nutshell! The island is an open museum with historical buildings relocated there and a stunning natural landscape—a great place to walk around and taste the old time's lifestyle.

  • I went there in a late afternoon, that was a mistake. It's better to book a full day for that park. It's outside the city, and if you go by public transportation, you still need to walk 30 min in...

  • This place is a good place to learn about Finnish history through its architect. They have houses built in the 1800s moved from other places to this open air museum. You can go in and explore the houses and learn about how people live in the old days, as well as certain events that happened in those houses.
  • Charming place where Finnish nature and history combines. Tickets 10€/adult ( if you want to see inside houses and enjoy guidance) otherwise free entry.
  • Superb place. Visited in winter and coverd by snow. You can walk around the museum. Great expereince
  • Great museum with plenty to see. Definitely worth paying the ticket price to be able to go into the buildings. The staff were extremely knowledgable and approachable - they really made the visit feel special!
  • It's good place 😊 4 walking, talking... and there's museums. There's coffeeshops and restaurants which is most amazing place, you have to visit at least once👌
