Welcome to The Vasa Museum in Stockholm

The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and The Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

It is here that you will find in all its glory, the unique and well preserved man-of-war Vasa from 1628, embellished with hundreds of wooden sculptures. The exhibitions in the museum describe the people on board and life at the time; how, after 333 years at the bottom of Stockholm bay, the ship was rediscovered and salvaged; and the research which is now underway to preserve the Vasa.

The tour includes: Transport from Karlstad to Stockhom/The Vasa Museum. Lunch and guided tour with English speaking guide.
