Among endless museums in Europe it is very hard to stand out, but Vasa manages just that. It takes you in to a interesting journey understanding life at sea in the past. The ship itself is well worth the visit, very impressive.

I like to see things that are unique to the city I'm visiting, and the Vasa Museum certainly fit the bill. It will particularly appeal to anyone interested in salvaging and sailing, and breathes life into that time and place.

I get how a museum based on one ship could be boring but the vasa is actually very well curated and interesting

Only has the 1 main exhibit which is the vasa warship of course but information regarding its history, rediscovery and recovery was presented using various medium made the museum very interesting and worthwhile to visit. I learnt a lot and I think you will too.

Even if you're not into maritime anything you need to come here. This is probably one of the coolest real life museums I've ever seen :-) it shows not only the ship, which is fantastic, but also life on board, the military weapons, skeletons and clothing and goods of the people in, and much much more. I highly recommend it... More

The Vasa Ship is incredible! The museum is centered around the ship, with multiple levels of viewing decks and several other exhibits.There is also a documentary showe about the construction and salvaging of the ship.If you visit only one site in Stockholm, the Vasa Museum should be it.

This is obviously a must see in Stockholm. The ship is obviously amazing but the museum is informative and presented very well.

This is a ship which sunk about 45 minutes into its first launch off Stockholm. It was hauled up recently and restored to its top-heavy, carved glory. It is a fascinating look at the attitudes and craftsmanship [if not engineering skills!] of the time, complete with the enemy Poles depicted as hiding under benches, etc. The carvings on this wooden...
