About Vasa Museum

Vasa was considered a mighty warship in the past. But, contrary to that, it sank inside the sea within 30 minutes of sailing. It was brought back on land in the 20th century. This led to the formation of the Vasa Museum, a maritime museum that opened in 1990 and is the most visited museum in the whole of Scandinavia. The museum gives you a glimpse of the history of Sweden in the 17th century with the help of the remains of the Vasa Warship. It is largely visited and is a hit among the tourists. The mighty ship looks as breathtaking as it would have looked centuries ago! History enthusiasts will especially love this place because of the ancient environment it offers.
