See the only preserved 17th-century ship in the world at Vasa Museum, the most-visited museum in Scandinavia. This maritime museum on the island of Djurgården displays a 64-gun warship that sank during its maiden voyage in 1628. The structure on exhibit is almost the complete ship from the wreck, which was decorated with hundreds of original carved sculptures. After decades of restoration work (the ship was salvaged in 1961), the museum opened in 1990. Today more than a million tourists visit the site annually to view the ship's 10 exhibitions in 13 different languages.

Vasa Museum Reviews
Корабль просто впечатляет как своими размерами так и своей сохранностью. Абсолютно маст си в Стокгольме! more »The ship is just as impressive as its size and its preservation. Absolutely a maust in Stockholm!
Ein Besuch der Vasa ist unbedingt Pflicht. Ein imposantes Schiff, das man gesehen haben sollte. Man kann den Restaurateuren bei ihrer Arbeit über die Schulter gucken, und erfährt Vieles zur Geschichte... more »A visit to the Vasa is absolutely mandatory. An imposing ship to be seen. You can look over the shoulders of the restorers in their work and learn a lot about the story. A must for young and old.
At first, I was just going to see the ship and go home. But the museum overall has amazed me. It tells the story not just of the ship, but also of how the everyday life and technology have been at two different time periods: when the ship was built and when it was salvaged. The ship itself is just a focal point of many stories, how it's construction and restoration pushed technological advancement in different eras. It is really worth visiting.
One of the most important museums of Stockholm dedicated to one of the worst nautical failures of history. The Vasa it's huge and majestic, the whole museum it's pretty interesting, especially the reconstructions of the inner rooms and the cannons. Worth visiting all the floors and taking a good look at the whole thing from above. How the museum it's conceived it's probably more interesting than the vessel itself. Still worth it especially if you manage a student discount.
