Owner description: The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

Around the sunken and raised over a long period on the surface old vessel the organizers managed to create a unique museum that call interest in science in general, especially in physics, chemistry, biology and mechanics. It is impossible to describe the museum - I strongly advise to visit it, especially with children!

Quite the ship to see and amazing how they restored this and got this into the museum for such a close up view. Very impressive!
But you must see the movie; we missed this and it was our loss. we arrived too late and nobody made us aware that the movies don't run to the end of the opening time. Asides from this it was a great experience.

The Vasa, a 64 gun warship, sank in Stockholm harbour on her maiden voyage in 1628. The museum houses this painstakingly preserved, almost fully intact 17th century warship. The carvings on the ship are truly incredible. Free tours (included in your admission price) in several languages are provided on the hour. There are many interesting exhibits (enough to keep you occupied for hours if you have the slightest interest in ships) including nine interactive exhibitions in which you can experience what life was like aboard the ship as well; a very informative video giving the history & recovery of the Vasa & exhibits describing the life of the sailors who were recovered from the raised Vasa.

Located on the island of Djurgarden at Galavarvsvagen 14. We took the Djurgarden ferry from Gamla Stan to Djurgarden & walked the very short distance to the museum. Hoho boats stop right at the museum & the tram or bus is also an option for getting there.

Queues get very long during the day. We arrived first thing in the morning when the museum opened & experienced no line whatsoever.

Really interesting museum with such a beautiful ship - we all found it interesting and especially our 10 year old son! Definitely worth the visit.
