Shore Excursion: Panoramic Stockholm Highlights with Vasa Museum and Gamla Stan
Nice clean bus! We left on time and saw a lot. The museum was really neat. Tour guide could have been a bit better - maybe more facts and other details about the location could have been added. Still, quite good!

Stockholm Old Town and the Vasa Museum, a small group tour.
Highly recommend this walking tour with Bengt of Stockholm Drive and Guide. I learned so much about Stockholm and Swedish history. Walking around Old Town helped me to get oriented so I felt more comfortable going solo. This tour included a ferry ride and the Vasa Museum. Bengt was very thorough, kind, engaging, and tolerant of all my questions. Don't miss this tour!

Private Car Tour of Stockholm with a Live guide, including the Vasa museum.
We thoroughly enjoyed our private car tour of Stockholm! Our tour guide was very friendly, helpful, and willing to show us the city. Our guide even went over the time allotted to make sure we saw everything. Please consider making the tour for 4 hours instead of 3. It is hard to see the Vasa Museum, walk through Old Town and still drive around the city.

Entertaining and Informative - Getting a Glimpse of Stockholm in the Comfort of a Car

Private Car Tour of Stockholm with a Live guide, including the Vasa museum.
Of course, Stockholm is a city that must be explored by foot but, this tour is a great way to get your bearings of the beautiful city in a short amount of time and when you can't be on your feet for a full day. Our guide, Äsä, is a history professor, and she had our full attention, including our 13 year old daughter, as soon as we got into her car. She has a wonderful gift of storytelling and making history come alive, both in the Vasa Museum and while touring Gamla Stan on foot. We learned so much about Swedish customs and culture as well as politics and history. While most visitors to the Vasa Museum had audio guides or read the descriptions beside each display, we were the envy of other visitors with our own private guide and commentary. Äsä is a wealth of information and really passionate about sharing her knowledge. Our tour extended well over one hour and we really appreciated the time she spent with us. I highly recommend Äsä and this tour.

When to Get There

The Vasa Museum is open year-round, but it’s busiest during the summer months of July and August, when you should visit early in the morning if you want to avoid crowds. Outside those peak months, the late night opening on Wednesdays (until 8pm) is a good time to visit if you want to avoid tour groups.

The star attraction of the Vasa Museum is the 226-foot-long (69-meter-long) warshipVasa, which sank in 1628 on her maiden voyage from Stockholm. Exhibitions allow visitors to view all six levels of the restored ship, and chronicle the building of theVasa, the passengers and events of its fateful maiden voyage, and the long task of restoring and preserving the historic vessel. There is also a spectacular painted model of theVasa ship and a recreation of a 1620s Stockholm shipyard.
