  • This historic meseuem is a must see in Helsinki. They transported antique Finnish houses and buildings to this island to become a showcase. The detail and history behind many designs is surprising and this is a place you don't want to miss in Helsinki.
  • Very beautiful museum in a very beautiful and natural environment. Be careful! Buy the bus tickets in advance. They aren't sold on the bus.
