  • 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.

  • This is a great open air museum. The exhibitions and buildings are really good but the people who are working there are awesome. Ask them a few questions and you will hear great stories. Really worth the trip and the tiny beds made me laugh a lot
  • Impossible to go on this open air museum because there was a festival this day and it was mandatory to pay 25€ by person, 25€ just for walking. Really ridiculous for once we were not the only ones to be unhappy. Maybe a great museum but for us impossible to check that !!!
