Helsinki, Finland: Seurasaari Open-Air Museum

This is a rather interesting idea for a museum - put one in a park.

Helsinki has an island devoted to that purpose. Finnish cities packed up some historical structures and shipped them to the nation's capital, where they were reassembled and placed on a hiking trail. Not only can residents go for a nice walk, but they can learn something along the way.

The windmill might have been the most impressive job of reconstruction, but there are other nice areas as well. The facility does have a small snack place if you get hungry along the way.
