Vasa History

Finding the Vasa Cannon

Vasa ship had 64 cannons on board. Three of them are in the museum. Where are the other 61? A joint team led by Friends of The Vasa Museum are embarking on a journey to find out. Some 400 years later, Vasa still has stories to tell.


Skeletons from Vasa

Studies of the skeletal remains that were found during the excavation of Vasa give us more knowledge of the people who died on board and thereby a deeper understanding of Vasa and her time.
