The absolute must-see sight in Stockholm is the Vasa Museum. The museum displays the only almost fully intact 17th-century ship that has ever been salvaged, the 64-gun warship Vasa that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628. It is truly awesome.
|This is a 1:10 model of the ship.
|The museum includes around 5000 items that separated from the ship
|A number of museums use skeletal reconstruction. In this case the crew.
|This is the shipyard where the ship was built.
|Another skeletal reconstruction. Not the popular image of a Viking!
|The museum ride takes you on a Viking journey around Europe.
|Armour from the Gotland excavation.
|A helmet from around 600AD
|Viking arm rings and other gold embellishments.
