I haven't been impressed of something for a long time. Vasa was different than anything I had ever seen!

Visited with my husband and 16 year old daughter. Easy to get to by catching the ferry from Gamla Stan. Free entry for children under 18, and a very reasonable 13SKR adult admission. The Vasa is the focal point of the museum. There is free wi fi in the building, and you can log on and gain access to a... More

Great, well-maintainet, maritime museum located on Djurgården Island of Stockholm. It houses the 64-gun warship Vasa, which sank in 1628 on her first voyage (and salvaged after 333 years at the bottom of the sea), and related artefacts and exhibits. Well deserved rating of best Scandinavian museum. It is very impressive to see such great detail of a warship built... More

I had no expectations and was blown away at the first sight of the Vasa. Seven floors of viewing and related artefact's and stories allow you to consider the wider context of this war ship. We visited with our two boys 13 and 11 who both enjoyed the trip. Children are free with paying adults and cost approx SEK 130... More

You can see the Vasa ship in a big hangar, in addition there are many historical articles from the ship. We stayed there approximately 1 hour and we were satisfied !

The ship itself is a marvel to see. However, they recovered the skeletons of the people who died when it sank and they are on display. It was sad to look at people who died tragically being treated as a Disneyfied museum exhibit.

It is fascinating to enter the museum and suddenly be overwhelmed by the sheer size of the Vasa royal ship, especially as you go through your visit and learn more and more details about its very unfortunate maiden voyage. Exhibits and narration are well arranged and well prepared, but the attention goes constantly back to the silent giant dominating the... More

A whole, preserved, formerly sunken 17th century ship with only a few replacement parts in a giant building with lots of explanatory exhibits is well worth a visit. There are older preserved ships in the world (Marie Rose) and better warship exhibitions (HMS Victory), but Vasa is thoroughly charming in her own unique way. Well worth a visit.

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.
