Vasa Museum

One of the most visited museum in the Nordic countries you will find in Stockholm. The Vasa Museum has over 1 million visitors every year.

In summer 1990 opened the Vasa Museum's new building in Djurgarden in Stockholm, and the Museum opened by HRH King Carl XVI Gustaf.  Vasa Museum has celebrated its 25 years anniversary and is one of the most visited museums in the Nordic countries.

The Vasa warship

The sheer scale and the beauty of Vasa are breath-taking, almost 700 wooden sculptures and figures adorn her length and breadth. Vasa is 69 metres long, and the warship sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628 and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961.

The ship was repaired and rebuilt over the last half-century, but 95% of the ship is original and shows the original glory. It`s decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures. You can outside the museum see the height of the ships original masts.

In the Museum ten different exhibitions are telling the history of the life on board the ship. You can also sit down and look at the film, translated into 13 different languages.
