Unusual to look at, yet utterly enchanting on the inside, this museum is one of Stockholm’s unmissable gems. Opened recently in 1990, the prime exhibit here is the Vasa, a ship doomed by it’s own weight and height during it’s maiden voyage, that sank less than 1300 metre out into the water. Salvaged in 1961 and put through intensive reconstruction, the Vasa looks as good as new is about 95% authentic to it’s orginal state. Richly decorated with hundreds of sculptures and ornaments, it’s a little sad that visitors are not allowed over the whole ship, but a section of the upper cannon deck. It’s still worth it though. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 5 Days.

  • We were not prepared for how WONDERFUL this museum is! Had read about it, but the shear size and workmanship of the Vasa will truly amaze anyone. Allow enough time. There's a lot to read and see. All ages except the very young would enjoy. A very memorable experience.

  • Biggest and best-preserved old ship I have seen. Wish my pictures did it better justice. Its somewhat dark inside to help preserve the ship. This is a fantastic museum. There are lots of exhibits of items everyday people were using. They also recovered skeletons and can tell a bit about the people who were on this ship when it sank. The museum is also located next to some other great tourist/ historical sites. I would plan a ½ for the ship and ½ for the rest of the sites.

  • The absolute coolest museum I've ever been to. I spent hours here and would gladly do so again. The sheer size of the ship alone is awe inspiring not to mention the beauty and detail of the carvings. I appreciated that all the information was presented in multiple languages.

  • Imagine a country that spends a large portion of its GDP on a ship that sinks 20 minutes after being launched. That is what happened to the Vasa. It sat in the mud of Stockholm's harbor since 1622 until the 1960s when it was salvaged and reconstructed from the salvaged pieces that had been extraordinarily preserved by the mud and cool waters of the Baltic. The Vasa now sits in a huge museum and is amazing.

  • What a beautiful Museum. A lot of information. They made that beautiful that ship, those Dutch. certainly worth the effort to go. Photography is a bit tricky (due to the light), but if you have a good camera you can manage it. You can have a delicious lunch. everything is good for someone in a wheelchair. Loved it just go !
