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.

“A must see....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is an extraordinary museum about a ship that sunk in the harbor on the maiden voyage in 1628. The Vasa is successfully raised to the surface in 1961 and restored. The building is constructed with three or more levels to view the ship and the salvaged artifacts. Be sure not to miss the Meantime Exhibit. It visually shows and tells what was happening in the first half of the 1600's. It is fascinating.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Museum is located at Djurgården. A really green and charming part of Stockholm well suited for an excursion. Easy 20 minute walk by the water from the city center. Several other sights nearby as Grøna Lund amusement park and Abba museum. We went on a saturday afternoon - not crowded at all as the museum is basically one huge room.

The ship is really impressive. Can´t believe how well it´s been preserved!
The exhibition is also really interesting and well put together.

Overheard some other tourists complaining about the room being so dark and chilly. Well, how else to you expect an old ship to stay in good shape? Most people know that old artifacts gets destroyed by heat, humidity and light. I found the dark room and chilly air to really add some excitement to the experience.

“Well worth the visit...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We ended up spending all afternoon here. We started off in the restaurant as we had arrived at lunch time - lots of tasty options. This is one of the most outstanding purpose built museums I have ever been in. Apart from the Vasa itself, the exhibits and explanations are well thought out and easy to follow. There is a reason this is the number 1 attraction in Stockholm. Outstanding.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Number One Stockholm attraction for a very good reason. This 17th century ship, raised from the Stockholm harbor after 333 years, is an aamazing sight. And the museum is vast and expansive, and extremely well-presented. I spent two hours inside and could have done more. Don't miss it!

“A must-see museum in Stockholm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

The Historic Vasa is exhibited well. Lighting adds a wonderful view of the ship. The entry inside ship is restricted now, considering the safety of the visitors. Ship is getting deteriorating nowadays... The articles used by the soldiers were also preserved. I personally like the "face the world" campaign, where we can submit our selfies which gets pinned in the world map and is published in their website via Flickr... A must visit, free with Stockholm card...
