Having sunk on its maiden voyage and lay sunk for 333 years, the salvage and restoration of this ship is a total wonder. The initial viewing of her on entering the museum is breathtaking and a sight to behold. Watch the historic film we you...More

What an amazing story! The engineering used for raising the ship was just as fascinating as the ship itself! Beautiful setting and highly detailed, you really must see this!

A museum for people who do not necessarily enjoy museums. Many different subject matters are addressed; from the science behind the conservation techniques used to preserve the ship, to the history of both the foundering and eventual recovery, and the archaeological study of the inhabitants....More

While 98% of the ship is original material dredged up from the point at which it sank, the two original cannons, alone, are worth seeing if your historic or naval interests align.

There is a free tour in English which we took, but do not waste your time. Instead if you are facing the entry desk, there is a movie theater off to your right. That movie will explain the history of the VASA ship. Then you...More

You simply take the FERRY 82 from the station SLUSSEN. If you have a tourist travel card for public transport, you don't have to pay.
