Top ways to experience Vrak - Museum Of Wrecks and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
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.

    Great Experience for Children
    The Vrak was a great place and a welcome addition to the Stockholm waterfront. We bought a combination ticket with the Vasa museum and it was well worth it. I highly recommend this museum to school-age children. There were many exhibits and hands-on learning stations through out. There were many interactive games, such as being a "Detective" to uncover facts about some of the shipwrecks in the Baltic. My wife and I actually found out some interesting history that we were unaware of with a shipwreck that happened in 1994. American television often doesn't spend much time on European news.

    Just Amazing
    This is one of the best museums I have visited. The Vasa is great and this is very close by. I suggest visiting this museum first and then going to the Vasa Museum. The way the Museum of Wrecks is laid out is just perfect. And don't miss the actual voice recordings near the end. So worth your time.

    Great museum, just do it before the Vasa Museum
    The problem with this museum is that most people go to it after they visit the Vasa Museum and there's just no way to compete with the Vasa. That being said, I definitely recommend getting the combination ticket to do both museums and just make sure you do the Vrak first. It's a small place, but it has such an interesting focus on the Baltic Sea shipwrecks and the archeology and research of all the shipwrecks throughout history there. The main room exploring a ship called The Traveling Man was very well done, with a projection on the floor of the actual wreck so you could get an idea of the scope and size of the wreck. The English language tour (only a couple times a day) was very interesting. There was a neat digital and a slightly bizarre, but intriguing movie that was projected on the ceiling and walls and you felt like you were under water with the divers. There was lots of really interesting artifacts and then there were so many interactive games and neat displays at the end. Those areas were really geared toward children, but adults could get just as much information. One VR thing was where you had the goggles on and you completely felt like you were diving and exploring the ship, with your lantern shining on the places you were looking and being able to turn around - very cool. It's a very different museum, focused and small, but very effective.

    Great for for whole family
    Highly recommend! We purchased a combo ticket from Vrak + Vasa museums and it was a great choice. The Vrak is smallish but has a lot of interactive exhibits that kept my teenagers engaged. Definitely do Vrak before Vasa, as other people have mentioned.

    Fascinating museum, really engaging experience
    We liked the detail of the Travelling Man wreck; we went on a tour and our guide spoke about this ship in detail. She really engaged us in the story so we recommend the tour options, included in the ticket price. The VR interactive dive was good too, as was the story of The Estonia, both upstairs. Overall, one of our top Stockholm experiences.

    Fascinating place.
    Don't be deceived by the name of this place. If you think you're going see a load of old, rotting ships, you couldn’t be more wrong. It's more like a maritime archaeological museum, and totally fascinating. The displays are really well laid out, modern and very clearly labelled in Swedish and English. There is such a lot of interactive activities, which will keep teenagers especially, involved. The ground floor is mainly devoted to the discovery of a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea, with the second floor mostly about maritime archaeology . I would recommend the guided tour, which is available. There is also a restaurant, although the menu is not extensive. Lovely staff and reasonably good food for lunch. I wasn’t initially keen on this place but went along with my enthusiastic partner. I’m glad I did because it was truly absorbing.

    Great Museum
    Visually stunning, incredibly accessible and above all really interesting. I presumed that it would take about an hour to get round but after 2 hours still had plenty left to see. Vrak is the perfect companion to a visit to the Vasa .

    Perfect complement to the Vasa museum for those seeking more knowledge about shipwrecks in the area
    We purchased the combo ticket when visiting Vasa and visited the Vrak museum a couple of days later. It was a very nice complement to the more popular Vasa attraction. Although small, we were able to absorb the exhibits and gain more knowledge about the ship industry in Sweden and the Baltic area. There were some interactive exhibits and a few opportunities for children, but this is primarily geared toward an adult audience who would like to learn more about other shipwrecks beyond the more well-known story of the Vasa. The museum also includes a small gift shop and cafe.

    Excellent museum, very interesting and informative
    We spent a long time here as there is such a lot of information to go alongside each exhibit. You learn everything from how the wrecks came to be, how they were salvaged and preserved and all the items that were found. The Estonia exhibit in particular gives you an idea of how horrific it must have been for the people on board. There is some great interactive stuff too. It may not be for everyone as you really need to take the time to read the information about each wreck to get the most out of your visit. I though think it's one of the best museums I have ever visited.

I visited in May 2024 during a congress. Such a fantastic topic but did not come alive fully. Many displays were empty. Much of the museum is perhaps designed with kids in mind. The Estonia story I really liked

This museum was on the small side, but the displays and graphics were amazing.
The museum displays were a combination of holograms, items from the wrecks, and witness accounts of some of them.

This place was amazing value for money. A must go to if you're visiting Stockholm.

Very informative museum. It's right next to the Vasa museum and totally different experiences. This museum has lots of interactive exhibits and a great history of the shipwrecks in the area.

Shallow and simplified. Might be good for kids or uneducated maybe? Short ”easy” stories, without much depth.
Wreck interested persons with academic background do not seem to be the target group…
