A real treasure from the 17th century
The Vasa Museum houses Vasa, the only preserved 17th century ship in the world. She capsized and sank in Stockholm in 1628. After 333 years on the seabed, the warship was salvaged in 1961. 98% original and richly adorned with hundreds of wooden sculptures, she is a unique attraction and art treasure.
The purpose-built museum also contains eleven exhibitions about Vasa and her time. Outside is the museum’s 17th century garden.
A film about Vasa is shown every hour, guided tours are offered daily and an audioguide is always available – all in different languages. There are also family activities. All is included in the entrance fee.
The museum has a well-stocked shop with a range of products for both children and adults; long-distance and local visitors. The restaurant serves lunch as well as sandwiches and pastries, with a focus on locally produced and organic ingredients.
