The quirky exterior of the Vasa Museum, with its mast and rigging, gives you a clue as to the museum’s subject. Inside is the Vasa, a huge warship which sank to the bottom of the water in Stockholm in 1628, plus related exhibitions and artefacts from the time. 333 years after it capsized, the Vasa was pulled up from the seabed, and the incredibly well-preserved ship has been displayed in the Vasa Museum since 1990. The Vasa's rich decoration – it’s covered in sculptures and carvings – is what makes it so fascinating. Originally, the sculptures that adorn the boat would have been gilded and painted, but they’re still spectacular to look at today, and painted replicas are also on show.
