We traveled to Seurasaari Island to get away from the city and see a bit of the countryside. Granted, at 30 minutes away, this is not the countryside. However, it feels like it is. I was shocked at how peaceful it was, how relaxing it...More

My husband and I have been to several open air museums, I find it really interesting to get a glimpse into a nation's past via the architecture. We arrived by tram and a walk through a wooded path, it was nice to get out of...More
To reach - find bus number 24, it is the best option. Seurasaari Open air museum is excellent (9 EUR entrance fee but opens at 11am for most of the time). It remains closed after September but check website for details.
Make sure you pay to enter. It is totally worth it. The staff gave us a map and marked all the locations that had someone at the location. They were all dressed up in traditional clothing and were very knowledgeable about the houses and the...More
Excellent combination of natural park and wooden building museum. Many historical wooden houses from different parts of Finland. Some of its are unique.

The 24 Bus is included in the day ticket, as it's route remains entirely in Helsinki. As other reviewers have pointed out, the "regional" fare only kicks in if you head out of the city. For visitors, the two most likely reasons you'd need a "regional" fare is if you were visiting the nearby city of Espoo, or heading to the airport which is actually in the city of Vantaa. As long as your'e inside Helsinki, a standard ticket will work fine, and Seurasaari is inside of Helsinki's borders (although just). The Helsinki trams are all covered by a typical day ticket as well.
