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

At first when you read that it is a museum dedicated to one ship, you think that will be quick to see. But no, you need a couple hours to take in everything that this amazing recovery and restoration has done. Discovered fairly intact and...More

Great to learn about the history behind the ship and get some amazing photos up close. You can’t go to Stockholm and not go to this museum

This is the most intact historic ship I have ever seen. Maybe the most intact in the world. Impressively massive, and the amount of decorative carving that has survived is incredible. Not to be missed.

Highly recommend visiting the Vasa Museum. We initially thought it might be a quick in and out but seeing the ship, hearing the history of the ship, and how it was preserved and brought back to life, was fascinating. Admission includes the ability to take...More

Somebody told me, "If you go to Stockholm, you cant miss it". It is incredible, this ship, so old, and how they had refurbished it. Its size. And most important, its history. Why did they built a so high ship, whith many cannon windows. And...More

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
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

You will have to take a cab, a bus to the museum. I took the 3 day travel pass that lets you use all public transport but if you're there for a day this travel pass may not make sense. In the same area there are multiple... More

You simply take the FERRY 82 from the station SLUSSEN. If you have a tourist travel card for public transport, you don't have to pay.

1 Day Cruise stop in Stockholm (2 Replies)
We are a group of Five adults. We would like to visit the old town, the Hard Rock Cafe, the IceBar and if time permits the Vasa Museum. We are only docked from 9:00 to 5:00 on Royal Caribbean Brilliance for one day May 19th 2013. What would be the best way to see all of these sites. Will the time permit? Is it easy to take a cab/taxi from the cruise dock and would this be the best way to get around given our short time fram and number of people?

Hailing a cab for 4 people is easy, finding one for 5 people could be hard. Use a phone or the Internet with one of the major carriers (Taxi Stockholm, Taxi 020 or Taxi Kurir). The Vasa Museum is probably less crowded before noon.

Tram to Vasa Museum in September (10 Replies)
Is the tram to the Vasa museum running on a daily basis in September? I read somewhere that for September, the tram runs only on the weekends and holidays. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.

HPNTraveller, i was there in an early Sept last year and i had no problems with any of the trams or busses anywhere i went. Some of the them have short(er) hours on the weekends, but it didnt stop me from going where i wanted to go. depending on where you will be coming from, Stockholm was in my opinion a walk-able city. good luck and enjoy the VASA.

one day cruise visit (3 Replies)
We will be docked from 8-5 (probably) at Frienhamn dock. We would like to go to the Vasa Museum first, then to Stansen, and then tour Gamla Stan where we will either do a free walking tour or follow Rick Steve’s self guided walk. I’m not clear from reading RS guidebook what is the best way to get to each of these places and how long it takes to travel from place to place. I think we have enough time to do all 3 of these sites but would appreciate input on this, and suggestions for...More

This is rather straight forward. Take bus no 76 to stop Djurgårdsbron. Cross the bridge and turn right for the museum. Skansen is on the hill on the other side of Drurgårdsvägen (the street with the tram line). After Skansen walk to the water at the end of Allmänna Gränd and take the ferry to the Old Town (Slussen). You can return to the cruise ship with the same bus from the Old Town (stops on Skeppsbron). I recommend buying a day travel card in the terminal building. You wont need more...More
