2 days off Cruise ship - A few questions

Sailing into Stockholm in early july for 2 days. We are taking a 4 hour walking tour the first morning but have the afternoon free. Also all the 2nd day. Visiting the VASA museum and the Skansen Open Air seem to be a great idea for the 2nd day. Is it too much? I can't seem to figure how just where they are. They seem to be close to each other but a ferry is required? Are they on the same island? can we walk from one to the other? Thank you for your assistance

Yes they are on an island, Djurgården. They are close, walking is a natural option. Ferry from Slussen is one option, the other is tram no 7 from the ciry center, Sergels Torg/Norrmalmstorg. I dont think its too much for a day.

The Vasa Museum and Skansen are both on the same island; Djurgården, at walking distance from each other. The island is connected to the rest of the city by several bridges, so beside the ferry, there is also a tram, number 7 (it's the only tram line in the city centre, so if you see a tram, that's it). Or you could walk, Stockholm isn't that big. :-)

The Vasa museum is here: www.openstreetmap.org/…

One of the entrances to Skansen, the Hazelius entrance, is just a couple of hundred meters away, to the east: www.openstreetmap.org/…

The main entrance is a bit further away; www.openstreetmap.org/…

If you want to look at everything at Skansen you can spend the entire day there, but it's probably possible to do both the Vasa museum and a "cherry-pick" of the things that interest you at Skansen in a day. There's supposed to be a web site at skansen.se, but I can't seem to reach it at the moment.

The Vasa museum web site is at http://www.vasamuseet.se/en/ .
