The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the seabed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

It's impressive! The history of the ship and it is presentation take all attention during visiting. It's great for adults and children. The guidance is done in many languages, so that almost everyone can understand the story of Vasa.

The perfect museum
Oct 2021 • Couples
In my opinion, the Vasa museum is how a museum should be:-). It has this awe inspiring ship on display and super interestig information boards as well as artefacts they retrieved from the water around and within the ship on 4 storeys.
Unlike many other museums, this one's definitely exciting for kids too.
If you're in Stockholm you totally have to go there.

The story of this warship is riveting!
Oct 2021 • Couples
I didn’t know the story of the warship before going in, but entering the museum and taking one look at the display and I was captivated. It was so incredibly interesting and the displays were varied and so well done. Just spectacular!

Stunning experiance
Sep 2021
In these corona times it is not at all crowded in the museum and you can spend the whole day watching all interesting things. The Vasa ship is not the whole story, everything from that time is so interesting to see.

Amazing
Aug 2021 • Couples
I see why this is one of Europes biggest attractions.
Before you start the tour around the ship. Watch the short movie about the ship and the disaster maiden voyage.
I would guess you need 2-3 hours in there.
