We love to visit this museum, it seems every time we go back they have added a new feature or interesting historical display. If there are long lines (tour busses) you can stroll around the beautiful island until the lines have gone down.

The physical presence of the shop is awesome. The story of recovery and preservation is a tribute to the Swedes. The fact that the boat travelled only 1500m before sinking is less of a tribute.

Very interesting museum of the history of one of the best saved ships of the 17th Century. The whole museum is built around the ships with lots of scientific explanation and realistic figures

This is an amazing museum, the centre piece fo which is ofcourse the Vasa sailing ship that was reclaimed from the seabed where she sand on her maiden voyage. The exhibition recounts the effort made to raise, reclaim, and preserve her, as well as giving fascinating background into the bodies recovered from the wreck and the geo-political events around the...

Everyone who has been to Stockholm raves about this place and I can see why. The ship and its story alone make the museum worth it. This is a 17th century warship that, due to its top-heavy design, sunk 20 minutes into its maiden voyage. It remains submerged for 333 years, preserved by the brackish waters, before being raised in... More

This is a great exhibition of not only the ship itself (WOW!) but many side exhibits that describe the ship's history, demise, and salvage. There are also very well-done descriptions of "the life of a sailor onboard". Finally, you can view the skeletal remains of some of the crew found with the ship at the bottom of Stockholm harbor.

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.
