"The Vasa Museum" Vasa Museum Tip by Aussiejohnno

Vasa Museum, Stockholm: 134 reviews and 205 photos

The Vasa was a royal Swedish battleship that sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. Rediscovered in the 1960s, it was brought up virtually intact and is now housed in a specially built museum. Viewing platforms give a good view of different levels of the ship, and interactive displays give a good idea about what life onboard would have been like, if it hadn't sunk. There is plenty of information in English, and it is worth seeing the film about the Vasa and its retrieval, which screens on the hour (in Swedish with English subtitles).
