My husband and I were not planning on visiting the Vasa Museum but we are so pleased that we did as it does seem to be a big part of Swedish history. The museum and exhibits within it was very interesting and we particularly enjoyed the 25 minute tour (free) which covered the basics before then walking around ourselves. Definitely... More

Great value for money and absolutely unmissable even on a business trip if you look for the project management lessons. Feature creep, fear culture (building a ship for the king) and unreasonable demands all in one. And the project failed spectacularly. But the museum does not, it absolutely delivers. Even the museum shop is great with reasonable pricing.

Queues were long when I visited, but well worth the wait. Amazing how an entire ship so huge was pulled out, intact, from the riverbed, hundred of years after it sank. Lots of other exhibits which provided context and a fuller picture of the ship, from its inception to demise.

The Vasa boat is awesome and the restoration work, really impressive. We spent more than one hour visiting all floors and we were enjoying every minute. The stern castle sculptures and the guns were by far the most captivating things. And remember to visit the top floor, the view is simply gorgeous!

I finally made it to the Vasa Museum on my 7th trip to Sweden, and so glad that I did! The entire restored ship is on display in the museum, along with various reproductions of some of its more noteworthy design and technical features. The museum does a great job of putting the Vasa and its demise in historical context,... More

Really impressive museum, starts of with a film showing the story, discovery and raising of the ship. The history is amazing. The ship is beautiful and really impressive. We spent just over an hour there and learnt loads. A definite must visit. We walked from central and it's a lovely but cold walk taking about 30 minutes.

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.
