The most famous museum of Sweden, and unique in the world! It is dedicated to a XVII century galleon that sank during his maiden voyage in 1628 and thus was preserved until now. The recovered ship is absolutely impressive, and you can visit the several levels the exhibition is divided to learn a lot about how it was built, the... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when we decided to visit the Vasa Museum. We didn't know much about it other than whenever you googled things to do in Stockholm it was listed as the number one attraction. I loved the Vasa Museum. I went in with low expectations because it's an entire museum built around a single ship, but... More

This is a great way to get a glimpse of Baltic and Swedish history. The ship itself is impressive and the museum is well-designed to showcase the ship and tell the story behind it. Who knew that such a large ship could be lost in the harbor, found after 300+ years, and still be intact and well-preserved enough to be... More

Honestly, I expected to spend only a few minutes at this museum, but because the ship was so well-preserved and the exhibits were so were curated, we ended spending a couple of hours here. The fact that the ship was poorly designed (very top-heavy, with a narrow hull) made it sink intact only 1,500 metres from shore. That the salinity... More

It's like you fell into the computer of the team that did the CGI for the Black Pearl like In Tron. Soooo big. Epic in every sense. Not to be missed.

We booked this tour from the cruise ship. We have no idea what to expect. They are displays of ships. One of them is a display of a gigantic wooden rescued ship. It's an interesting museum.

We have seen a number of museums and exhibits in Stockholm in the last few days. All have been very well done, but I have to give top marks to the Vasa Museum. Very well laid out and informative. Buy a Stockholm pass and avoid the queues.

We joined a large cue to get into the attraction however the line moved very quickly and we did not wait more than 10 minutes. I recommend you watch the video before looking around the vessel. It was very interesting. The ship is very impressive and there is lots of informative information while you walk around. It's a shame the... More

You'll read that the Vasa is a must-see when exploring Stockholm... And it's absolutely true! What a lovely museum showcasing this amazingly preserved warship that never got the chance to hit the open water. Loved the multi level open concept with the Vasa front and centre. Make sure you take in the short video outlining the Vasa's history and how... More
