Sinking to the bottom of the harbour in 1628, the Vasa is arguably the best preserved ancient maritime artifact in the world. Its maiden voyage lasted a mere 1300 metres before capsizing just off shore. Early attempts to raise it were unsuccessful, but a state backed effort began salvage in 1956. In 1961, after years of preparation and raising small portions of the ship, the main lift was performed. However, this was just the beginning. Preservations efforts would continue until 1979, when the spraying of the preservative substance was complete.
This elaborate effort and years of hard work have left a legacy for future generations to experience and learn about their seafaring past. Upon entry into the building, you are overwhelemed by the completely restored and preserved Vasa. The ship is incredibly fully assembled indoors multiple related exhibits depicting subjects such as the building process, life on board and Sweden’s rich maritime history.
Dedicate at least a morning to this museum, as it is unlike any other in the world and you will find yourself captivated by the vastness of the ship and the science and dedication behind its preservation.
