Stockholm II

As soon as we had our three-day Stockholm card (which gives you free entry to dozens of museums and free public transportation) we hopped on a boat to get to the Vasa museum. This museum was built to house an enormous ship (the Vasa) which sank on her maiden voyage on the 10th of August 1628. It stayed at the bottom of Stockholm harbour for 333 years before being pulled out in 1961. 50 years later, the museum still draws more than 1 million visitors each year, and rightly so! The ship itself is absolutely incredible, but the way the whole museum is built, and the way the different exhibits are displayed is tremendous. We had a wonderful time there, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Stockholm!
