Interesting story!

I was very curious as to how the Vasa ended up at the bottom of the harbor. No spoilers here though! You'll just have to go and find out yourself. :-)

Seriously jaw-dropping stuff - if you like the Mary Rose, you'll LOVE the Vasa! Really well-laid out, informative museum - with the star of the show given plenty of viewing and photo opportunities. Fascinating for all ages, anyone with an interest in naval/military history, archaeologists, and history geeks alike. Really cannot big this museum up enough - pretty much worth... More

Awesome place, the free tours are worth going on, only takes around 25 mins but you learn a lot, a good way to spend 3-4 hours

It was a positive surprise entering into the museum an see, first of all, a real ship (not 100% of course) and all the information related to that time (sec XVII). Excellent experience!

This is a museum that will take your breath away if you appreciate history. This boat is a truly unique find and conservation (ongoing). I have never seen anything like it, and nothing similar in the world exists. The sheer size of it and the number of trees and workmanship and expertise to build it is staggering, and really gives...

A definite visit in Stockholm, it was such a surprise to see how they managed to put a ship into the museum and putting so much efforts to preserve it. Till now it is still a mystery why the ship sanked so soon after its maiden journey, which makes it more interesting and triggers curiosity.

At first didn't really know what to expect. And to be honest we went because it was freezing and most of the museums were closed. To my big surprise the vessel is huge and amazing! Didn't expect this for a rather sad/failure story of the vessel :-)

Guided tour is the best option, other wise you will miss quite a few interesting things! If you go to Stockholm and you're remotely interested in history, then you must visit the Vasa Museum! Take your time to stroll around after the guided tour! Suitable for families with children! The restaurant is not really recommended: expensive, small portions, and there's... More

Went to Vasa on a rainy day while on tour. It's a cool place which quite obviously tries to make it a worthwhile experience for visitors. There is a short movie that can be watched before seeing the ship which is very helpful as otherwise people probably would understand exactly what it's doing there. It's a got a bunch of... More
