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.

Vasa Museum, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review
This is a really cool site that my cousin took me took. Tickets were around $13 each and you get to see this salvaged centuries old ship from top to bottom! I know some people were able to go on the boat, but I'm not sure how much extra you have to pay or if it's a special invite sort of deal. I was happy going floor to floor learning about the ship and taking different pictures of it. It is a bit cooler inside since they're trying to preserve the ship as much as possible, but I already was dressed warm since it was cooler outside too. Definitely worth a visit if you have time in Stockholm!
If there's one place which I loved in Stockholm.. It's this museum. I am a geek and this was just right my alley. The story they told there...it moved me. They got a recreation of the ships suite that they used to salvage the boat, they got a whole research about how to preserve wet wood, a lot of research of how to recreate sailor faces and best of all..a whole room talking without taking pride about how woman were equal to man in the old days. The wife is usually the museum type of lady, while I rather Starbucks and chill watching the people on the street...but this time ...she was ready and I was still reading history posters all around the ship. As a must...get a wide lens for you camera...that ship is huge and no regular 22mm is gonna fit the beast.
Fascinating museum. The main attraction is obviously the ship, but there are also a lot of interesting exhibitions across the 6 floor building around the ship. On the lowest floor you can watch the restoration work taking place and learn some of the science behind it. On the other floors you can learn the story behind it and about life at sea in that time, and of course get some great views into the ship. Well worth the money.
We have been traveling around Europe for a few months now and this museum is one of our favorites so far. It is well thought out, easy to follow, and very interesting. It has information on everything about the ship, from the shipyard to the people on board, to the excavation and how they are preserving it today. Give it a good 3-4 hours to see and enjoy everything. I would definitely recommend.
This museum is amazing. There are a couple of negative reviews however I beg that you ignore them and take a look for yourself. You won't see anything like this anywhere else on the planet, because this is the only ship of its kind left in the world. You need to be aware that the museum is quite dark and slightly chilly, this is because of how fragile the ship is and the environment needs to be controlled. The museum does a fantastic job of explaining what this ship was built for, who built it, where it was built and why it sunk. You just need to walk around the museum or take the tour to find this information. There is a reason why this is Stockholm's number one attraction, and you won't be disappointed. To be able to get so close to history and feel the scale of this ship is simply amazing.
