    Today's visit to the museum was one that I will always remember. I recommend people take the free tour which explains the history of how they got the ship from the bottom of the water. You can easily spend a couple of hours in here. Free lockers are available, just ask at the desk for a token, so you can store your valuables safely. We had lunch in the small cafe. Asparagus soup was absolutely lovely with as much bread as you like.

    I had never heard of this museum and didn't know what to expect, but it was at the top of every things to do in Stockholm list so felt obligated to check it out. I'm sure every review will mention how impressive that a full sized shop is housed inside, so I won't repeat (think I just did). I recommend starting on the highest floors and working down. Another interesting aspect of the museum beyond the ship itself is the science behind the actual preservation. Last, don't miss the bottom floor with skeletons of the crew and their stories...spooky.

    This is a very cool museum about the Vasa that sank in Stockholm so many centuries ago. Make sure you get a free guided tour as there are lots of gems about the ship they voice over during the tour.

    I often sideline museums when going through a city quickly. But, Vasa museum in Stockholm is a MUST..!! I was in the city for just 2 days, and would have skipped it, but then would have a made a big mistake. This museum is not free, but the payment is worth it. I think it is one of its kind of museum. A complete ship from Vikings era is in display. The way the floors have been designed and exhibitions placed around the magnificent and tremendously large ship, is unique and viewer-friendly. I suggest that you visit all the floors, each and every nook and corner. There is lot to check out.

    This museum is well worth your time and a visit. This enormous ship sank on its maiden voyage in the mid 1600's and was resurrected from the ocean floor in the 1960's and reconstructed to 98% of its original form. Quite remarkable and unbelievable. Great museum gift shop with reasonably priced souvenirs of all sorts.

    We missed the Vasa museum on our last trip. We only had an afternoon arrive and It closes early at 5. However we made it this time. It is truly bigger then you imagine. Amazing with its short history and epic tale. Would recommend a couple of hours if you want to see it all. The park itself is also a lovely walk from the city centre and great waterside places for an after tour drink.

    The visit of the Vasa museum was included in our guided tour on Gamla Stan. We were really impressed when we entered the museum - what a huge ship! A lot of interesting and historical facts. So go there and visit it too :-)

    The highlight is of course the Viking ship. The museum also give you a glimpse of the lives of the people then. Great video about the story of the ship.

    Honestly... one of the most amazing things I have seen in my life. The size of the ship is staggering and the detail is breathtaking. The surrounding exhibits will keep you there for hours. Highlight of our trip.

    This is an amazing museum, the Vasa and the stories around its sinking and eventual raising are so facinating. I would recommend this to all ages.

    The museum has done an excellent job documenting this gorgeous wooden ship that sank on its maiden voyage, remaining at the bottom of the harbour for 300 years until it was lifted.

    Definitely worth a visit. It's mind boggling trying to comprehend how they built such an epic ship back in the 1600s! The level of details is almost as incredible as the story behind/ quality of the recovery/ restoration.

    We went there in off-season so we didn't have to wait to enter. I was there with my boyfriend and he was amazed by the ship (so as my colleague who was there with his wife). The entrance fee is not cheap but totally worth it! There are 6 floors where you can learn about everything regarding the Vasa. There are short videos about the history of the boat in English so it doesn't need to pay extra for tour guide. There is no chance to enter the boat but some parts are copied and you can see the copies from inside as well.

    Budget at least half a day to explore this gem. The story of the vasa is remarkable, and the building itself is a joy to explore. Artifacts, reconstructions, and of course the massive ship all enchant and inform. There's a café with delicious treats, and a gift shop for those bringing souvenirs home.
