Moving Way from the American use of the word awesome, this museum is truly awe inspiring. The detail on the ship itself is unbelievable considering its age. This is an absolute must see if you're in Stockholm.

The Vasa Museum is one of the most unique museums in the world. It's sole focus is on the wreck of the wooden war ship Vasa, which sunk on its maiden Voyage in 1628 and was raised over 300 years later, in 1961. Along the way historical issues are raised and debated: why was it built? Why did it sink?... More

One of the most amazing museums I have visited. Despite being a small one it offers a great exhibition. You also have free tours in many different languages and there's a cinema that projects a 12' movie of the ship's story

I considered the Vasa to be one of the least known about "must sees" in Europe. Before visiting Sweden, I had never heard about this immaculately preserved ship and was stunned. The level of detail is truly amazing and the housing provides a sense of scale to this 17th century flag ship.

Super interesting, been here a few times and I'm not usually a museum - lover. Simply fascinating, for visitors of all ages! Quite crowded during high-season.

It's only 1 ship, but it took me almost 2 hours to go through everything inside. It's a fascinating museum that has really put effort into organizing a great visitor experience. There are guided tours, but as I've been part of 2, it seems that every tour guide has it's own different personal view of the story which is worth... More

Who would give such a unique experience 1 star?? Well really weird... For me it was a unique and magical experience. I haven't had a single guest who wasn't impressed after seeing the museum either. The ship itself is magnificent, however the museum also offers many other services to give visitors good insights about how it was like to live... More
