Visiting the Vasa

One of the best indoor activities in Stockholm is without a doubt the Vasa Museum, especially if it’s hot – the main hall for the ship is kept delightfully, artificially cool! It’s 130 SEK for adult entry but houses one of the most complete 17th Century Warships ever salvaged. The sight as you walk in is amazing!

I was lucky enough to get in as part of an event for work so here you see her laid out and ready to dine with 600 guests (and an ABBA tribute band!). Travelling for work often means limited time to see the cities I pass through so the memory of seeing this ship is a fond one.

If you’re short on time, the museum also has a handy Vasa in one hour guide. Head on over to their website to plan your own visit!
