You really must visit this museum. it's different, the ship is enormous and in perfect condition. you can also get an idea about that era (circa 1650). Objects and skeletons that were found are among the exhibits. Definitely recommend the visit!

I have visited before but it’s well worth a visit. Buy the Stockholm Pass if you can as a couple of visits to different attractions pays for it as individual entrance fee is expensive. The museum charts the history of the 17th Century ship which...More

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

You simply take the FERRY 82 from the station SLUSSEN. If you have a tourist travel card for public transport, you don't have to pay.
