Vasa Museum - Review
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.

Vasa Museum, Stockholm Reviews
An absolute must see! Many friends told me I really needed to do this museum. I hadn't so high expectations, but it's breathtaking. Fascinating finds, reconstructions and history. And the ship itself is a wonder. Take a guided tour of you haven't much time, it's free and repeated in different languages throughout the day. Contact the museum for details. Oh and the gift shop has one of the best selection of tasteful souvenirs and very reasonable prices. Top marks!
The Vasa Museum is amazing. I've been to Stockholm a lot and I've had the opportunity to see a lot of this beautiful city, but I put Vasa Museum in my list of the top 5 things to do while in Stockholm. I've been to the museum several times, but I keep going back because I seem to find something new every time I visit. The Vasa is the only almost fully intact 17th century ship. It's a huge ship with handcrafted details that are even more amazing when you think about the time and skill that went into building the ship in the 1620's. Pictures don't come close to doing the size and intricate details of this beautiful ship justice. You truly have to see it to understand its size and craftsmanship. The one complaint I have about the museum is that it closes every day at 5 p.m. I never seem to have enough time. I'm always right in the middle of one of the displays when the announcements stating that the museum is closing start coming over the intercom. The museum also has a cafe with food options that are quite good. The Nordic Museum is also located next to the Vasa Museum and includes displays and artifacts related to the history of Sweden and the Nordic people. The building that houses the Nordic Museum is absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend visiting the Vasa Museum during your time in Stockholm - you won't be disappointed.
One of my favorite experiences in Stockholm. Museum was so well laid out and interesting that even if you are not a fan of history you would find it fascinating. The ship has been restored to look like it is ready to take sail again with all the elaborate detailing, rigging, and ports open. I really can’t recommend this place enough and the gift shop is the cheapest and by far the b st I found in Sweden.
The Vasa is a ship that sunk in Stockholm harbor in 1628. In 1961 they found it and figured out how to remove it, and consequently built a museum around it. This is that museum - it's incredible. Has 7 floors built around the ship with a wealth of information including exhibits and reconstruction of the lives and people involved. Really top notch - one of the most interesting exhibits I've been to. The ship itself, well one can only describe it as absolutely amazing.
Amazing place which will have your jaw drop on first glance of the ship. You can’t get on the ship but the different floors take you around all the ships interest points. The exertion on the side of it take you deep in to the life on board. There are free tours in many different languages and it’s worth taking to get all the info about the vessel and the museum. The top floor is a must visit as you get to see the ship from above and nearly feel what it was like to be on it.
