What people are saying about Vasa Museum

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,133 reviews

Bought the 72 hours pass and ideal when you make a combination of museums and boat and bus trips. The individual entrance prices are between 140 and 170 crowns per person, so you can easily get it. The ABBA museum is not included in this pass, but it does include hop-on hop-on buses, boat trip, fotografiska museum, vasa museum, Viking planet and Nobel Prize museum to name a few. We stayed there at the end of April and only some boat trips were not active yet. In short, a must if you want to save money on your discovery trip through beautiful Stockholm.

Very impressive museum. Very detailed and lots of things to see and do within the museum itself.

It is a fantastic museum. I would recommend it to people of all ages.
