The Vasa Museum

Updated: Oct 19, 2022

The Vasa Museum is located on Djurgården island. This is a must-visit museum in Stockholm, whether you are a local or a tourist. ⚓This museum displays the only almost fully intact 17th-century ship that has ever been salvaged, the 64-gun warship Vasa that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 (Wikipedia).

I was pleasantly surprised that this museum is accommodating not only to the curiosity of the adult visitors but to the young explorers (from 3 years old) as well.

🗺️There are 2 discovery trails: for 3-5-year-old and 6-12-year-old visitors. Museum also includes interactive areas for children, sailing games, and a short animated film about the Vasa Piglet. The Museum also has pop-up stations where the visitors can learn different things, for example how to tie sailor knots. These stations usually pop up over the weekend or during the school break.

This museum has free lockers; the visitors can park their strollers near the lockers or take them with them. There are elevators and a ramp (and stairs), so it is convenient to move around with the stroller.

Vasa Museum has a pick-nick area and a restaurant (a microwave is in the restaurant). There are changing tables in the bathrooms.

🕰 Opening Hours in June-August: 8:30 - 18:00 everyday

💰 Admission: 190 SEK

Free entrance for children 0-18 years old
