Vasa MuseumTop 10
The Vasa Museum (Swedish: Vasamuseet), located on the island of Djurgården, exhibits the Vasa, the world’s only preserved 17th century ship. The Vasa Museum is one of Stockholm’s most outstanding tourist attractions and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.
History of the Vasa Museum
The Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia. And rightly so: there is hardly any other museum that takes you back in time so vividly. The world’s only preserved ship from the 17th century, the Vasa, is exhibited. The former warship of King Gustav II Adolf sank already during its maiden voyage on August 10th, 1628 in front of Stockholm, but after 333 years, it could be salvaged in a very good condition. An absolute must-see!
The warship, which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628, was rediscovered in the brackish waters of the Baltic Sea in 1956 and salvaged five years later. Through an elaborate conservation process, the wreck was restored and has been on display in the purpose-built Vasa Museum since 1990. In addition to the fully preserved shipwreck, archaeological finds from the early 17th century are on display in the museum.
Visit the museum
Tickets can only be bought on site, which often results in long queues at the ticket offices. Those who have only little time and in any case need a ticket beforehand can book a corresponding city tour online. Those who want to visit even more sightseeings in Stockholm can also save money and time with the Stockholm Pass.
