Fascinating museum containing the salvaged remains of the Swedish 17th Century warship Vasa, which sunk barely a mile into its maiden voyage. It would be interesting even for those people with no interest in history.

I absolutely loved this place. It became my favorite museum in the world instantaneously and one of the coolest places I've been, ever!
It tells the story of the Vasa, a ship that sank in the 1600's in the Stockholm bay and was recovered 333 years later.
They tell every detail on how they recovered the Vasa, the work to make sure it was not going to rotten, which took 17 years and keeps happening and all the details from life at that time. Since the Vasa sank in very cold waters, it was very well preserved. It was even possible to know what the crew had eaten before the trip due to very well preserved remainings.
If you visit Stockholm visit the Vasa no matter what happens. It is also a very fun museum for kids.Recommended for:

If you haven't seen it before, this is by far the best museum in Stockholm. A "lost" ship completely restored! There are lots of interesting interactive displays & videos, so this is definitely a place where you can spend a few hours.

Quite possibly one of THE coolest thing I've seen in Europe. The ship itself is astonishingly huge and the museum they've built around it is world class. I went on guided tour, watched the 25 minute video of how they salvaged and then preserved the ship along with their exhibits on 17th century Sweden, life on board (with a section you can climb on as well as go "beneath the deck" to feel how cramped things were) and the archaeology behind the finds on the ship.
Truly an amazing experience, something which really grabs your imagination and takes you back in the past.Recommended for:

I spent 2 hours in this museum. Kind of an odd premise (it's basically about a warship that sank right outside the harbor while on its way to Poland). It was interactive and a great place for foreigners like us to get into some Swedish history.Recommended for:

This is just the Swedish name for the Vasa museum--it's amazing and a must see if you're in Sweden if you're interested in military or naval history or not. It's worth it just to stand there and look at a compete 17th-century ship standing on its keel.Recommended for:

This boat is simply amazing. The whole museum is built around it and has lots of interesting exhibits around the swedisch navy. There's also a big section about the elevation of the boat, that you shoouldn't miss.
I read about this place in one of my tour books and am so glad I took a trip out to see this beautiful warship. It was a bit of trek...I had to take a bus which dropped me off right down the street. Don't take the train, it won't take you anywhere as close as where the local bus drops you off.
Vasamuseet is the worlds only preserved 17th century warship. I read that it basically sank right after departure. You can view all 6 stories of the ship...the museum is a very large room with the ship in the center. There are different levels you can climb (off to the side, not on the actual ship) and they do allow you to take pictures.
It is an amazing sight, everyone of all ages and gender will enjoy this. The museum is really well made and organized. I was hesitant to see the ship but am so glad I did.

The Vasa museum should not be missed. This is a ship that they dug out of the harbor that sunk on it's maiden voyage in 1628. It is a remarkable thing to view since it is almost entirely intact. The building itself is also an architectural representation of a ship.
It's an interesting story... a ship that sank and is now featured in the museum after they dug it out of the water (there's more of a story than that, but that's the basic). You can't really go in the ship, but you can look around, above and below. There's also a (cheesy, but adorable) video presentation. It's not huge, so there isn't much to do here. But a fun to do.
Amazing view of the galleon can keep your watching for hours! You can imagine the time when it was built and get into it, feel yourself on the deck of this mighty galleon sailing the sea, watching with a spyglass on the land, setting the sails, feel the cool sea wind on your face, and the drop of water.. It is so real..;) Definitely worth a visit.
