The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's best preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

Vasa was as much a floating palace as a sailing vessel and war machine. The Vasa Up Close exhibition provides deeper understanding of the Vasa's sculptures, what they looked like, and what they symbolised.
