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
A unique experience in a great location. One of the best museums I have ever been to and a must visit if you are in Stockholm. more »
I was not expecting to enjoy this quite as much as I did, but it was a wonderfully insightful few hours. A beautifully curated exhibition, with incredible attention to detail. We did the guided tour... more »
Such an impressive piece of history! Well organized and informative exhibitions along the history of this monumental ship. Interesting architecture of the museum and very polite and educated personnel. Well spent money and worth a visit for young and old! No extra charges for lockers or guided tours and clean toilets.
The ship lies in the middle of the museum surrounded by a 5-6 floors where you can find interesting information about it. There is also a kids mini movie based on a kid's book and a short documentary. Was unique and interesting. (Also kids (up to either 17/18( forgot which :( ) get in for free)
