Trip Planner: Europe / Sweden / Stockholm County / Stockholm / Vasa Museum
See the only preserved 17th-century ship in the world at Vasa Museum, the most-visited museum in Scandinavia. This maritime museum on the island of Djurgården displays a 64-gun warship that sank during its maiden voyage in 1628. The structure on exhibit is almost the complete ship from the wreck, which was decorated with hundreds of original carved sculptures. After decades of restoration work (the ship was salvaged in 1961), the museum opened in 1990. Today more than a million tourists visit the site annually to view the ship's 10 exhibitions in 13 different languages.

We got recommended by our guide Christian that offered the 1 hour express tour of Stockholm to visit this museum- it was definitely worth it, fascinating ships to see. A must visit.

Wow, such an amazing experience. The ship is 98 % original and it took years to rescue and restore it. It is like touching history. Loved it.

Visited here our first day in Stockholm. Was super cool to see such a large ship on display inside. It really takes you by surprise when you first walk in! The amount of details in the ship is amazing. And to think how old it is and how long it spent underwater… Bought tickets on site and didn’t wait in any line. My only complaint is the lighting. It seems very dim which makes it difficult to see the details and interior. I don’t know if it’s due to the preservation but brighter lights would be more beneficial. Even adding some lights inside the ship would make it easier to see inside when you’re looking through the open areas. I like how there’s several different levels to see the various angles. It wasn’t too crowded inside which was nice and there was a lot of history and reading on other parts. All in all, it was a great time spending a couple hours here and I recommend it to others!
Amazing one of a kind museum. Detailed explanations of the salvaging and history of the ship. Guests are allowed really up close to the ship and it’s beautiful details can be examined. Three levels to the museum with a beautiful cafe with nice staff and good food. Gift shop is well stocked with affordable and good quality memorabilia. Strongly recommended!
Top 3 things to see/do while you're in Stockholm. Great place to spend a few hours. One of the only preserved ships from the 1600s, the sheer size and quality of this is extremely impressive. Well worth the cost for entry. Compared to its Viking Ship counterpart in Oslo, Norway...I would have to say this museum is even better. (Even if there are roughly 800 years separating the 2)
Cannot recommend this place enough. The story of the Vasa is incredible - from its build, it’s sinking, and it’s recovery hundreds of years later. We’ll worth doing the guided tour (it’s no extra cost) as well as taking a couple of hours to go round the museum in your own time. Didn’t do the film but I’m sure it’s decent. I’d take 3 - 4 hours to take it all in with a break in the middle. We also ate at the cafe which was good. Nice food and friendly service. Topped it all off with a magnet from the gift shop. Great stuff.
Very impressive exposition. The Vasa was a warship that sank 1628 on her maiden voyage just outside Stockholm (or in Stockholm by today's standard) and was recovered after 333 years in 1961. In this museum you can see the original ship that could be recovered and rebuild to 98%. It is impressive and very interesting and you can easily spend a few hours here. There are regular free guided tours in different languages that you can follow or just walk through it at your own pace. I very much recommend this museum to anyone who is in any way interested in history and/or ships.
