Vasa Museum

It was a momentous day when the Vasa first set sail, a 64-gun, 69-meter (226-foot) long and 52.5-meter (172-foot) tall warship, the pride of Sweden's naval fleet. A critical miscalculation meant that the ship was unbalanced, tipping to one side just minutes after she set off on her maiden voyage on August 10, 1628. The ship sank soon after, taking with it a few of the people on board. In 1961, the shipwreck was salvaged from the depths of the harbor and pieced back together. The world's only almost entirely intact 17th-century salvaged ship, the Vasa is now housed at the custom-built Vasa Museum where hundreds of visitors arrive each day to take a closer look at this vessel. The cleverly constructed museum allows visitors to view the Vasa from six levels, its stylized masts indicative of the actual height of the ship when fully rigged. Informative exhibits chronicle the history of the ship, the people involved and the Swedish navy in general, while the artifacts recovered from the wreck offer a glimpse into the life on the Vasa. The ship itself is spectacularly well-preserved despite having spent over three centuries submerged under water. Today, the Vasa Museum is considered one of Scandinavia's most visited museums.

Stockholm Palace

The King of Sweden's official residence, Stockholm Royal Palace, which dates back to the thirteenth century is situated in the Old Town. The new palace was built between 1697-1754, according to the original drawings, in Roman Baroque style. With over 600 rooms, the palace is one of the largest residential castles in Europe. A number of museums are located within the walls, such as the Treasury, Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities, the Royal Armoury and the Royal Chapel. The changing of the guard is a treat to watch.

Moderna Museet

The Moderna Museum, located across the bridge from Skeppsholmen, is one of the most interesting museums in the city. The building itself is highly acclaimed for its clean aesthetic lines, open spaces and brilliant use of natural light. Many of the exhibitions create a powerful cocktail of provocative, shocking, confusing and fantastic elements, and it is possible that you may feel a bit dizzy in the spacious rooms, especially with works that force the audiences to re-evaluate space and dimensions. On the whole, the museum is a challenging but rewarding place to visit. It houses an excellent collection of both Swedish and international modern art, including many familiar pieces by Warhol, Duchamp, Matisse and Picasso. You can also spend several hours in the photography library, and the comprehensive gift shop. Please check the website for timings.
