The emblem of the historical sites managed by MetsähallitusThe island of Seili has a gloomy past as a remote place of confinement for lepers and a mental asylum. Those exiled to the island brought along the planks for their coffin and never returned to the outside world. Today, visitors can admire the Museum Church of Seili and enjoy the charming island views and good ferry connections.

Suitability: A charming destination for friends of history and the archipelago. The island has no special services for the disabled, but the terrain is mainly easy. The island is accessible for prams.

The Museum Church and parts of Seili island are managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Coastal and Metropolitan Area.
