    Amazing one of a kind museum. Detailed explanations of the salvaging and history of the ship. Guests are allowed really up close to the ship and it’s beautiful details can be examined. Three levels to the museum with a beautiful cafe with nice staff and good food. Gift shop is well stocked with affordable and good quality memorabilia. Strongly recommended!

    A must for any touristic visit to Stockholm! It was like being in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie witnessing The Black Pearl live in the flesh. Just magnificent craftsmanship, and the details and sheer scale of the warship is unbelievable. Great exhibition full of history, with many useful and interesting facts. Try to book a guide and get on board the vessel for the full experience.

    This was our favourite museum amongst all of those we visited during our trip to scandinavia! Amazingly interesting. You could easily spend over 3 hours here. The film at the start was a good introduction. Loads of see and learn for the price!

    Absolutely staggering experience. I thought I'd just spend an hour or so there checking out the ship, but the entire exhibition is completely engrossing. The entire story of how they lifted the ship is fascinating. I'd get excited every time I realised there was still a floor of exhibits left to investigate. Standing on the ground floor looking up at the ship is a brilliantly humbling experience.

    It’s a shame we can’t see inside the ship but it was amazing to see. The idea that they made such a massive ship back then with so much attention to detail is outstanding. There’s at least 7 to 9 floors so come ready for walking. There’s a big gift shop and locker area.

    Fascinating history of the Vasa - 333 years underwater and now the largest preserved and restored artefact. Wish we had more time - an hour is not enough if you enjoy museums. The Kvinnor exhibit was a fascinating look at women’s role on ships and business during this era. A must see when in Stockholm!

    It’s a great museum to see the actual ship. It’s so huge and humongous n is maintained well. Plus the history around it is explained in the audio guides and movie. But if you are not a museum person n just wanna do it to cover it, then you might find ticket expensive.

    A bit weak for the price + needs organization Interesting if you’re into ships. The ship itself looked cool for a few mins and then we were over it. The related exhibitions could use some organization. We had to try hard to get the full history and story behind the ship with the info available inside the museum. The price tag of 170 kr is the reason for the 3 stars; if it was 50, this would be closer to 5 stars.
