Discover Vasa Museum

Stockholm's Vasa Museum gets its name from the royal vessel which is exhibited inside it. The Vasa dates back to the 17th Century; it sunk on its maiden journey in 1628 for unexplained reasons. 330 years later, it was pulled from the waters after it was located by a shipwreck specialist. It was then restored and transformed into an exhibition museum and today, swarms of visitors flock to see it. The museum also displays a collection of objects that were found on board the Vasa, together with objects reminiscent of the past. A film recounting its history is shown daily, and several times in different languages.
