Owner description: The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

Amazing museum with so much to see. We honestly didn't think we would be there for as long as we were but we were so captivated by everything there that the time flew by. Highly recommend taking the half hr and doing the guided tour as well.
While there we also ended up having lunch on the Vasa café and it was one of the best meals we have had. Food was fantastic - I had the tuna and my husband had the meatballs. Adding on a side salad was only 15 KER and a coffee 10 KER which is a great deal. Prices at the cafe were fantastic for the quality and amount of food we had; we paid 350 KER in total for our meal.

This museum seems to keep going on and on as you go upstairs. All of the information is very interesting! The guided tour is engaging and a great basis for exploring the rest of the museum!

The Vasa Was rescued after laying in the bottom of the harbor for 400 years. Its failure is a testament to the hubris of the king and lack of courage by anyone in his employe to tell him the design would fail. This museum is worth a look around if you have the Stockholm Pass, which includes it.

A fascinating piece of Swedish history and definitely worth a visit, there’s so much to take in! It’s ok reading about it, but to see it in person is so much better.
