See the only preserved 17th-century ship in the world at Vasa Museum, the most-visited museum in Scandinavia. This maritime museum on the island of Djurgården displays a 64-gun warship that sank during its maiden voyage in 1628. The structure on exhibit is almost the complete ship from the wreck, which was decorated with hundreds of original carved sculptures. After decades of restoration work (the ship was salvaged in 1961), the museum opened in 1990. Today more than a million tourists visit the site annually to view the ship's 10 exhibitions in 13 different languages.

  • It's hard to believe you are looking at a ship that old sitting right in front of you. The museum is very well laid out. A must do in Stockholm.

  • The centrepiece - the ship itself - is genuinely impressive and unlike anything else in the world. Even the Mary Rose in the UK, an older ship than the Vasa, is less complete and still at an earlier.....  more

  • The best value for your dollar. Every well done. The displays are great. The museum goes out of it's way to give you a great experience. The ship is incredibly well preserved. This is a must see if you are touring Stockholm. Get there early as you can spend a good chunk of your day going through the museum if you would like. The restaurant is also a great break from the tour. The food is great!
  • Amazing that the Vasa was restored. Amazing to see it. The short introductory movie was great. After that???? I was done. Thankful I didn’t wait on a long line to enter. But, obviously, according to the opinions other reviewers, I’m in the minority. If you only have a short amount of time on Stockholm, I’d pass if the queue is long.
