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.

One of the highlights of my trip to Stockholm. Amazing story of its construction, sinking and recovery. Hard to capture its size with photos. Worth spending a good 2 to 3 hours. Fantastic asset and... more »
The best museum I have ever been in my life! The main subject is the boat, but you can find a lot of information about Sweden’s history, and be amazed by what this boat gave us as learning! It’s not only about the extremely well preserved boat, you also have the chance of appreciating the environment it was build in, and feel like you’re at that time. Everything is amazing! I strongly recommend the visiting, and please spend the whole afternoon and enjoy the dubbed films at the auditoriums.
Wonderful experience, entertaining and educational. My daughter loved it. There wete many opportunities to feel as if part of the life of the people then. There were educational movies in many languages, places where one can climb the match, or board the ship, hear the sounds. Although there were tons of people it was well organized and easy to navigate. Definitely worth visiting.
