    Join our tour Stockholm Must Sees and skip the line at the Vasa Museum. The tour starts with a walk of the Old Town, we then catch the ferry to Djurgården and finish off with a visit to the Vasa.

    its amazing to see Vasa after 333 years staying underwater! The statues, and the ship are unbelievable. What an honour for Swedish people to protect this history. And the entrance is 130 SEK

    Interested in history or (old) technologies? This is the only place in the world to see a complete 17th century battle ship for real. Spend half a day (when it's dark outside) — it'll be worth it.

    Cool and worth the visit. Discount for students. It will take you one or two hours to see everything (although apart from the boat there's not much to see). Go early, it gets crowded.

    One of the best museums I've been to. Excellent exhibits and fun to spend time here. So much to see! Give yourself at least 1.5 hours and start with the film (pick up the brochure as you step inside).

    An entire salvaged 17th naval warship housed in the building, with highly educational material on the history of the ship. The one must-do for any first time visitor to Stockholm.
  • Nathaniel S.
    Lots of other reviews will tell you this is a must see and they're all correct. It's an incredible restoration of the vessel with great exhibits. A must see indeed. Plan for at least two hours.

    The Vasa Ship, soon to be 400 years old, is one of the only ships from this era that has been salvaged almost in full. This is a true WOW experience! Tour and movie, all included in the entrance fee.

    The museum has several levels so you can see the ship from all angles. The best section is "life on board" and the movie about Vasa. I got bored quite quickly though...

    I suggest to watch the movie about the salvage and the reconstruction of the vessel before taking the tour. The location and the garden of the museum is amazing. Free entrance with the stockholm card.

    A great museum. There is free English guided tour which lasts about 30 minutes. Çok etkileyici bir müzeydi. Özellikle ücretsiz İngilizce rehber turuna katılmanızı öneririm

    It's incredible to see how a XVOO century's warship was salvaged from the bottom of the Baltic Sea and restored to its original form. The tour is captivating and riveting. Totally worth the visit.

    The Vasa Museum in Stockholm is one of Scandinavia's most visited museums. This place is home to the 17th century ship Vasa. Also has 4 other museum ships. Opens at 10am. Guided tours available.

    A must see! The only place where you'll see a ship from this time. One of the greatest museum I've been. If you only have time for one museum, go for this one!

    The Vasa is truly spectacular and the history around it is fascinating. Took us 3 hours to go round and we loved every moment. Do not miss!

    This is one of those must sees in Stockholm. It is mind blowing. Even if you think it won't interest you, give it a go. It will. It is easy to get lost in history looking at the Vasa.

    Unique, and if you're on a budget the museum offers a free audio tour that's streamable on your smartphone. Note that my Galaxy S3 couldn't connect to their wi-fi at the time but an iPhone could.

    Best museum in Stockholm. Once you arrived, make sure you watch the video first (15 minutes) to give you context about the ship. Plenty of display, expect to spend about 2 hours.

    The ship is epic in size and beauty. Rather than use a photo of the vasa, the models are worth some attention too for being so lifelike!

    An absolute must-see. She's beautiful, and the museum is huge and full of interesting details. English signage for tourists. Very decent cafe, too.

    Awesome museum of one ship and it's very short life. Make sure to join the short tour, which is included in the price of the ticket.

    Great historical museum showcasing an old war ship that sank right after setting sail. Lots of other info and fascinating interactive displays☺️

    I had an amazing time here. The exhibition is very well organised even for those who didn't know about Vasa before. She totally amazes me how mankind can builds great things

    Best museum in Djurgarden. Definitely make some time to visit here, try to catch a guide and listen the whole story. I strongly recommend watching the documentary film afterwards.

    While the ship itself is amazing, what's truly impressive is previous as well as current efforts to preserve Vasa. Unreal amounts of research -- and it's fascinating to learn about.

    Small but fascinating. Check out the film of Vasa first - in your language. Timetable at information desk. If you're in a hurry, they have a shorter version - just for you!

    What an amazing museum! The boat is huge and 98% true ! The restaurant is so so but you have to watch this XVII century boat.

    a very impressive museum worth a visit. Due to the conserving of the ship the climate is quite cold (relative to outside temperature in summer), so bring along a light jacket.

    The ship itself is one of the wonders of the world and the exhibitions are so great with amazing visualization, also suitable for kids! And it's cheap.

    This was much more interesting than I had expected. The size of the ship was impressive, and the overall exhibit was interesting. I'm glad we didn't miss this.

    Make sure you come here 20 min before it opens at 830am. Take the first English film starts at 9am, and then English guided tour at 930am. And then take breakfast inside. Then wonder around.

    If you're a local, or come to Stockholm often, get the Gold annual membership pass for SEK 250. After 2 years of consecutive membership, you may board the actual ship herself.

    Nice, worthy to see. I recommend an English guided tour (every hour and every half hour) and also see the film about the Vasa ship (cca. 15 min)

    One of the best museums to visit if you're in Stockholm. Enjoy the video and media, they explain a lot. Wish you could walk inside the boat!

    The story of the ship is interesting and the ship itself is impressive. But i would not say that the museum is my first thing to see in Stockholm.

    The ship Vasa that was built in honor of our King. Problem was that the King was TO involved with the design and put to many canons on board. The boat sunk at its maiden voyage 1628. Must see. Read more

    The ship is amazing and the whole museum is well thought out. Just as I was getting sad by not being able to touch the ship, I found a part that was put on display so people can touch it.

    Not one of my favourite but it is a well curated museum. You can have some idea about buoyancy of water and physics law.

    You see this vast 1628 ship from the water line. Among its many carvings, spot the lion, a symbol of the Vasa kings. – Green Guide Editor

    For a person who doesn't really enjoy museum,I liked this one the best..although it's kinda funny to think that I am looking at a ship that sunk during it's maiden voyage

    Go to the top and enjoy the view. Likely the largest sailing ship you'll ever see, and definitely the oldest. Breathtaking

    Absolutely amazing! Don't forget to check out the lowest level where they present the skeletons and how to digitally recreate a face from a skull. Fascinating!
