    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.

    Must see attraction when visiting Stockholm.

  • Steven H.

    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!

    Steven Hassall · October 19
  • Andrea M.

    Wonderful. Even the building is cool.

    Plan your time very well, if you interested in vessels and ships; you are not leaving this place fast!

    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.

    Impressive and outstanding ship! It was a complete failure but it was beautifully crafted and designed.

    Mel Basañez · September 14
  • Ines S.

    Very impressing and definitely worth a visit! Still don't get over the fact that this beautiful ship sank after just 1,5 km :D

    Very impressing. I expected an old ship, but it was one of the best museums I'v ever seen.

    Splendido museo che conserva una nave da guerra pressoché intatta, da vedere! Wonderful exhibition, you can see an original warship from xii century

    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!

  • Alexandra G.

    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.

    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.

    Súper cool museum, it's just about the boat most of it but it's worth it. And it has free wifi.

    Visit all the floors!

    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.

  • Julie O.

    Come after 4pm - before that batches of your groups make the lines long

    Julie ODonnell · July 16
  • Aline U.

    Amazing! A cultural and historical place. Good wifi!

  • Therese O.

    Pretty cool museum with this giant ship that sank year 1628. My favorite museum.

    Must visit.

  • Kyze

    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.

    Kyze · June 20
  • Vitor F.

    The only place in the world one can find a 17th century warship that is 98% original. Need to say more?

    From every angle the ship is magnificent.

    Jess Kelly · June 13

    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!

  • Gary W.

    Get there early or late because it gets hard to get to the railings to read the plaques and get a good view otherwise.

    Gary Waliczek · May 31
  • Heidi

    If you love ships, this is a must see. For other people it is still a great museum to go to.

  • Bernardo B. M.

    Bring your headphones! They will be useful to listen to the audioguide

  • Ben R.

    400 year old shipwrecks is a real rarity - you gotta see this epic fail!

    Emma Hager · February 22
  • Paul A.

    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.

    Paul Ark · February 15

    Bigger ship than I thought. Totally worth it.
