Stockholm Varsa Musem

Are there any Viking long ships in the Varsa Museum apart from the preserved Viking warship that sunk on it's maiden voyage in the harbour.

Vasa is not a viking ship. Vasa is from the 17th century and the viking age lasted until the 11th century. Check out the museum website at http://www.vasamuseet.se/en/ for more information on the ship and the exhibitions.

If you are interested in Vikings, consider a visit to the Birka archological site a little bit out of Stockholm. Although I don't know whether they have ships there... If you want to see Viking ships, there's an excellent museum about them in Oslo, Norway.

the ship is so huge and adorned, you will not lack for anything else. the Vasa museum is a highlight!! and you can easily spend many hours there. the film of the recovery is equally inspiring and they show it with english subtitles.
