The museum can be very popular in July and August, the museum looks to educate kids and adults about the past and how the sailors lived and what happen on the ill-fated day. The ship is in very good condition and beautiful to look at, the museum is well worth a visit but the entrance fee maybe slightly over priced... More

I was unsure what to expect from this museum, having heard very little about the Vasa itself but it was amazing. The scale of the ship recovered from the Baltic Sea was breathtaking and the information about the process of lifting it from the sea bed, along with details about the ship itself, was second to none. Definitely worth a... More

The vasa museum was good the boat is massive and the restoration work they have done is great, me personally I'm not a huge museum lover so that's why I only gave it 3/5 but it is impressive the sheer size of the boat considering when it was made

Any visit to Stockholm has to include a visit to the Vassa Museum. The ship is absolutely STUNNING! The story that surrounds the construction and sinking is also one you will not forget. The free tour in English was very informative and provided a good starting point for visiting the rest of the Museum and it's various displays.

This had to be my favorite museum in Stockholm. The museum creates a concoction of history, artistry, craftsmanship and culture to give the visitor an authentic and fascinating remedy of Sweden's love and affection of all things nautical. A visitor could spend hours here and be overwhelmed by the artifacts, exhibits and monumental presence of the Vasa itself.

The story of the Vasa Ship is fascinating in itself, but the museum really brings the tragedy of the incredible vessel sinking on its maiden voyage to life! It is well presented with lots to see and great detail about the ship, the life of the people who sailed in her and the historical significance of this tragic episode in... More

Only had time for 2 hours overall but learned plenty. Restored ship is amazing. The curation of the background information was well designed and informative, capturing the trials and tribulations of life at sea in a vessel like this. I'm pleased they restored it so well. But it does rather make me smile that the ship was such a huge... More

The story, the ship itself and the experience are first class in our opinion you really can't miss this if you are in Stockholm and sure you will be amazed as we were.

Basically, the museum consists of the Vasse ship and artefacts from the ship. There are several levels to this museum allowing you to see the vessel from all different angles. The artefacts are very interesting! There are reconstructed faces of some of the crew/passengers who were on board when the ship sank. If you're interested in all things history, this... More
