Just another regular museum. It tells you a tale of an unsuccessful attempt at floating a ship......

We love the Vasa. It is one of the best museums I've visited. It is very accessible to all ages. My 6 year old son loves the story and all of the details of the museum. The tours are great but it's also nice to walk through and explore on your own. My son also loves the tapenade in the... More

I was skeptical of going to a whole museum devoted to a single boat. But they do a good job of telling you interesting things about the boat -- why it was built, why it was a total failure, how the expedition brought it up to the surface (as it turns out, not that easy for something that sank hundreds...

One of the great maritime disasters of history, & one of the great salvage stories told brilliantly in a wonderful display of restored boat & accompanying exhibits. The scale of the boat is quite staggering when you are alongside it & having to climb thru 3 stories of the building to get to the top reinforces this feeling even more.... More

This is a great old ship and worth a visit when you're in Stockholm. We didn't spend as much time on the information plaques as you could but we spent about an hour in exploring and looking - it was interesting and I'm glad we did it!

A really well presented story about the history of the city and ship building, to the ship and its sinking, and the efforts to recover it and make it the masterpiece it is today. Give it at least an hour and a half and try to nab one of the free tours when you first arrive.

The installation is detailed and very well organized. It takes you to another time and shows you the feats and hardships of the lives of those men and women. A must see for everyone remotely culturally interested!

Visiting the Vasa Museum is one of the highlights during our weekend trip in Stockholm. Located on the island of Djurgården, the museum displays a 17th century warship called Vasa. Yes, they have the whole ship inside the museum almost fully intact. It takes you hundreds of years back in time. The museum is massive - obviously housing such a... More
