Szenna is a village in Somogy county, Hungary. Around 1715, the area was the possession of the Esterházy family.

In the village centre is the Szenna Open Air Museum, which won the Europa Nostra award in 1982.

The local elementary school named after Laszlo Fekete.

A local tradition in Szenna, taking place around Easter and dating back to around the 2nd century AD (and during a pre-Christian time in Hungarian tribes), is called the "watering of the girls", a fertility ritual where boys throw buckets of water of young girls running past them.
