Nowhere in the world is there a ship like Vasa. Every year, more than a million people come to see the shipwreck which has become such a sensation. Vasa brings the 17th century to life for us. It is important for future generations to be able to experience this magnificent vessel and all the objects found with it. Vasa will not survive for ever, but the Vasa Musuem has a duty to ensure that the ship is preserved in as good a condition as possible for as long as possible.
About the Heritage Site
- Country: Sweden
- Location: The Vasa Museum is situated on the island of Djurgården in Stockholm
- Type of location: Sensational shipwreck from the 17th century
- Experience offered: The Vasa Museum collection consists of the Vasa itself and all of the objects that were found with the ship. We regard it to be a “closed” discovery in which all parts are of equal importance to an understanding of the whole. There are several thousand objects that either belong to the ship or were on-board. Unlike the other Swedish National Maritime Museums, the Naval Museum and the Maritime Museum, the Vasa Museum does not continue to collect new objects – except of course when we dive again at the site of the shipwreck! We can offer you a Family Trail in Swedish, English, German, Finnish and Russian from age 6 and upwards. Bring an adult and come with us on a tour of Vasa's history! Other experiences: MP3 guide, guided tours, restaurant and shop with all sorts of souvenirs associated with Vasa, such as replicas of objects found on board, jewellery and models. Can be rented for banquets, parties and dinners.
