Vasa Museum is one quirky museum; and the best we’ve seen in a long time – partly because it is so different from any conventional museum, partly because it is smartly organized and therefore very entertaining.
The museum provides a wealth of information about every chapter in Vasa’s history. The ship can be admired from different levels and it’s truly gorgeous and incredibly well preserved. There are free English guided tours that start every few minutes by the museum entrance. Different movies about Vasa screen every hour and models illustrating life on the ship are on display. The exhibition is so comprehensive that it hardly leaves any question unanswered. We spent almost 3 hours here. Given that it’s a museum with only one exhibit, I believe it is safe to say it really captivated us.
