The Vasa Museum

Address: Galarvarvsvagen 14

Ahoy! The almighty pirate ship be all you need to see on your trip. HARRR! Well it's not really a pirate ship but it's as close to it as you'll get. This is the museum that displays the warship Vasa from 1628 when the world looked a whole lot different.

On August 10, 1628, she set sail for the first time. A sudden gust of wind caused her to list so that water poured in through the lowest tier of open gun ports. She sank ridiculously quickly. This was supposed to have been the mightiest ship, and to have strengthened Sweden's command of the Baltic. Instead she sank in 100 feet of water.

This was an enormous blow to the naval ego and to the king who had decided upon the dimensions of the ship. So there it lay until 1956, when it was decided upon to try and salvage the historic monument.

This is Scandinavias' most popular museum. The smell of the sea air, the exhibits about the old Vasa crew and much more have inspired people for decades. For those wishing to scurvy back in time and let themselves be swept away to a world of dangerous oceans and embarrassing incidents then this is a must.
