Very unique and the most impressive museum in Stockholm. It is a MUST to see when visiting.
Ironically many Swedes have not been here. It is unfortunate for them as this is an amazing plave to visit! I have been roughly nine times and can probably offer a tour on it myself! It is well the visit and make sure to catch the documentary movie that playes just inside before you tour the ship itself. Will give you an wven greater appreciation for how the ship was located and recovered.
Amazingly preserved ship. It's a huge ship. Very awe inspiring.
Vasa Museum was very impressive. I thought it was going to be just a ship in a building, but the history and story behind of this ship is just astonishing. It was a tragic accident, but thanks to that we know much better about the life in the 17th century. The details of the ship is really amazing. See the 20minute movie first before start the tour.
Liked it. Spent 2 hours in the museum
Very very cool. Definitely a must see in Stockholm.
The Vasamuseet is one of the coolest places I've visited anywhere in the world. At first when I heard it was a museum dedicated to a giant boat, I figured we'd go check it out, but that we'd be in and out of the Vasamuseet in a few minutes. Boy was I wrong. The Vasa is a beautifully, and remarkably, restored vessel that sunk in 1628. The Vasa looks like something straight out of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Helpful Tip: I highly recommend watching the movie in the theater. It explains why the ship was intact when they hauled it up in 1961 (primarily because of the cold brackish water it sunk in).
I absolutely loved this place. It became my favorite museum in the world instantaneously and one of the coolest places I've been, ever!It tells the story of the Vasa, a ship that sank in the 1600's in the Stockholm bay and was recovered 333 years later. They tell every detail on how they recovered the Vasa, the work to make sure it was not going to rotten, which took 17 years and keeps happening and all the details from life at that time. Since the Vasa sank in very cold waters, it was very well preserved. It was even possible to know what the crew had eaten before the trip due to very well preserved remainings.If you visit Stockholm visit the Vasa no matter what happens. It is also a very fun museum for kids.
There's nothing else like this anywhere--a complete 17th-century ship standing on its keel--not a reconstruction. It's like being sucked back into time. Absolutely amazing if you like ships or naval history or not, it's worth just standing and looking at the ship.
