It's only 1 ship, but it took me almost 2 hours to go through everything inside. It's a fascinating museum that has really put effort into organizing a great visitor experience. There are guided tours, but as I've been part of 2, it seems that every tour guide has it's own different personal view of the story which is worth... More

Who would give such a unique experience 1 star?? Well really weird... For me it was a unique and magical experience. I haven't had a single guest who wasn't impressed after seeing the museum either. The ship itself is magnificent, however the museum also offers many other services to give visitors good insights about how it was like to live... More

The Vasa was ordered by the King of Sweden in 1625, it sank in 1628 Eight Years after the European emigrants took their first Step on the Plymouth Stepstone. Vasa is today in a fine Museum at The Djurgarden Stockholm. Watch the Movie, choose language, when she was lifted up from the Sea in 1961!

This is unique and a must among the attractions that Stockholm can offer. A museum about failure, once upon a time beautifully made. It needs a refurbishment, but is still something you can't miss. I've been there many times, and since the museum is placed in a nice neighborhood, don't miss other close gems, like the biological museum...

The Vasa museum was one of our favorite places that we visited. The ship itself is magnificent. The history is so interesting. Can easily spend a few hours here.

Worth time to visit. Beautiful ship displayed in a spacious museum with no crowds and plenty of room to sit and gaze at the craftmanship. The carvings, the story, the displays all tell the tale of some ship planning gone wrong. Be sure to see the little movie to learn more.
