This is, perhaps, the city’s only true must-see sight. The warship Vasa sank just minutes after she launched in 1628 and lay underwater for 333 years until 1961 when she was salvaged and eventually displayed in the Vasa Museet. It’s an extraordinary museum. The best way to experience the ship is to start with the documentary that shows on a loop in the small cinema. It gives you a full understanding of the ship’s origins and the extraordinary work that went into recovering her.
