One day a piglet called Lindbom leaves his beloved mud puddle and heads out on a great adventure on board the warship Vasa.
The film is based on the book “The Vasa Piglet” written by Björn Bergenholtz.
The film is 17 minutes long and suitable for children from the age of 3 and is shown several times per day in English and Swedish.
After watching the film, you can follow in Lindbom’s footsteps through the museum. Free trail guides in English and Swedish can be found at the film screening or at the information desk. Go with the Piglet Lindbom through the museum and answer some tricky questions based on the film. The guide also contains activities that you can do at home. Suitable for children from age 3.

For the older children (and for adults), there is a film about Vasa which gives a good introduction to the ship’s unusual and exciting history. It tells you about the construction of Vasa at the ship yard, the sinking, about life in Stockholm during the 17th century, and about the salvage, excavation and preservation of the ship. The film is 17 minutes and shown in several languages for example English, German, French, Spanish and Swedish.
Suitable for children from age 6.

You can also enter a full-scale model of a part of Vasa and see the crews belongings that have been found – all in the exhibition Life onboard.
