Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet)
Built to house the wreckage of the mighty Vasa warship, Stockholm’s Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet) is now one of Scandinavia's most-visited attractions, drawing over one million annual visitors. Part of Sweden’s National Maritime Museums system, the Vasa Museum is located on the island of Djurgarden and remains the only place in the world where visitors can see a fully intact 17th-century ship.

The Basics
Pre-book your tickets to ensure skip-the-line entry, opt for a guided tour to learn more about the fascinating ship and its ongoing restoration, or combine your visit with a sightseeing tour of Stockholm and experience other must-see attractions such as the old town of Gamla Stan and the Royal Palace. For those who prefer to explore independently, hop-on hop-off buses and boats stop outside the museum, and entrance is included for Stockholm Pass holders.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Visitor facilities include restrooms, storage lockers, a restaurant, and a gift shop.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the museum. 
  • The Vasa Museum is fully wheelchair accessible. Exhibition information is also provided in braille and audio.

How to Get to There
The museum is located on the western side of Djurgården Island in central Stockholm. The easiest way to get to the museum is by tram. From the city center, take the number seven tram towards Waldemarsudde. 

When to Get There
The Vasa Museum is open year-round, but it’s busiest during the summer months of July and August, when you should visit early in the morning if you want to avoid crowds. Outside those peak months, the late night opening on Wednesdays (until 8pm) is a good time to visit if you want to avoid tour groups. 

Vasa Museum Highlights
The star attraction of the Vasa Museum is the 226-foot-long (69-meter-long) warship Vasa, which sank in 1628 on her maiden voyage from Stockholm. Exhibitions allow visitors to view all six levels of the restored ship, and chronicle the building of the Vasa,  the passengers and events of its fateful maiden voyage, and the long task of restoring and preserving the historic vessel. There is also a spectacular painted model of the Vasa ship and a recreation of a 1620s Stockholm shipyard.
Address: Djurgårdsvägen 36, Stockholm 115 21, Sweden
Hours: Open daily 10am - 5pm, open until 8pm on Wednesdays
Admission: SEK$130 for adults
