A nice museum, worth a short visit. We completed the whole museum in about 2 hours. It was informative and interactive for children. I am glad we went, but you do not need more than a few hours at this museum.

I hadn't really heard about the Vasa Ship before going to this museum, but it was recommended to me by a friend. I am really glad that I went, because seeing the Vasa Ship standing inside the museum is a very impressive experience. Really worth a visit.

Not comparable experience to be able to see ship form 17th century. Its best possibility to see how they build ships on that time in real. Simply wow.

If you enjoy history you have to go to this museum. You will feel impressed by such incredible stories. The museum is very well arranged with easy explanations in different sections. Headphones are provided so that you spend a couple of hours getting to know the importance of that ship and everything that goes with it. Entrance fee is ok... More

Really impressive museum unlike any others I've visited. Great free guided tour that will give you the highlights and some tips on what else to see. The Vasa is restaured into its old glory and this is a great opportunity to feel how it must have been in the past.

We went round in 45 minutes as we were only interested in seeing the boat but we could have stayed longer. Amazing experience, relatively cheap, definitely worth a visit even if it is brief.

It's a very interesting exhibition of the boat. Worth a visit on a cold and rainy day. Not a must do in Stockholm but I enjoyed learning about the Vasa.

Not only is the ship and associated collateral fundings interesting, the fact that they've built an entire museum around the ship is very neat. This is a must-do for a visit to Stockholm.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
