The Vasa Museum is temporarily closed due to the Swedish government's restrictions to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We hope to be able to reopen in mid-January.

We want the Vasa Museum to be accessible to everyone and we are constantly working to improve our accessibility. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact us.

Plan your visit:

  • Companions to visitors with disabilities have free admission.
  • Assistance dogs are welcome.
  • Disabled parking is available outside the museum entrance. There are two parking spaces. Construction work is currently going on by the entrance to the museum, but it is still possible to reach these parking spaces.


During your visit:

  • Lifts are available to all floors.
  • Toilets are located in the entrance hall, by the Information Desk on the ground floor, on the third floor and in the restaurant.
  • Two wheelchairs and ten simple folding chairs can be borrowed at the Information Desk. 
  • For the visually impaired there is a model of Vasa. On the model, you can feel with your hands how Vasa was built. If you are interested, contact the Information Desk.
  • A hearing loop is available in the large auditorium during film screenings.
  • A tour through the museum in Braille is available in Swedish and English.
  • Our restaurant is available for wheelchairs and has accessible toilets.

Information about tickets and queues

  • Tickets to the Vasa Museum can be purchased on site in the museum, or in advance on our website.
  • During our peak season, from May until September, we have many visitors. Due to this there can be queues to the museum, in the most busy periods up to approximately 30 minutes. Usually, mornings and lunchtime are more busy and afternoons calmer.
  • During our low season there can be some queues on weekends and during school holidays. The least busy periods are in the afternoons and on Wednesday evenings when the museum is open until 8 pm.
