The Vasa Museum is another of the must-visit centres in Stockholm. The Vasa was launched in 1628 as part of the Swedish navy and sailed only 1600 metres before it sank. It remained preserved in the mud of the seabed before being raised over 300 years later and restored.
It only cost just over £10 (130 Kr) to go into the Museum though it was not possible to go onto the ship itself. Nevertheless, you can see the ship from every angle possible and from 7 different floors. There was plenty of information on what life would have been like on the ship (had it not sunk minutes into its maiden voyage) and how the ship was raised from its seabed grave. It would be easy to spend half a day in the Museum.
