The Vasa Museum

One of the reasons, I went to Stockholm was to see the Vasa.

I first heard about the ship in my teens, when it was raised from the floor of Stockholm Harbour. The techniques of raising the ship were also detailed in the Meccano Magazine.

It will be interesting to see how the Vasa compares with the Mary Rose.

I must have spent about three hours wandering around the museum and afterwards I felt a lot better, as the humidity in the museum was about 60% to keep the ship [preserved.

    • Now to see the Mary rose in Pompey! It will be an interesting comparison, as that ship is a 100 years older and not as complete.
