Inside Stockholm's favorite maritime museum you'll find the world's only intact 17th century ship, the Vasa which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628. The ship was actually built right where the Radisson Blu Strand Hotel is today. Now fully restored, the spectacular vessel offers visitors a glimpse into Swedish naval history and a fascinating day out for the whole family.
Found a short ferry ride from Stockholm Old Town, this iconic attraction which opened its doors in 1990, is one of the most visited in Scandinavia.
Exploring the Vasa Museum
The museum entry fee includes a guided tour, letting you explore the ship and learn its history - from its ill-fated maiden voyage to the preservation work that continues today. Families are most welcome at the Vasa Museum and younger visitors can learn by following the family trail around the exhibits.
Catch a short film screening at the start of your visit, for a unique glimpse of the interior of the ship plus a whistle-stop tour of the history of the Vasa. After exploring the Vasa Museum, unwind in the maritime themed restaurant, where you can dine on locally sourced traditional Swedish food whilst admiring the sea view complete with boats, lighthouses and icebreakers.
