August 10th 1628 the warship Vasa sank on her maiden voyage, in Stockholm harbour before the eyes of a large audience, only minutes after setting sail for the first time. The ship was rediscovered during the 1950s and was salvaged in 1961. At that time the ship had been at the bottom of the ocean for 333 years. During her time at the museum, the warship has been carefully restored to its original condition. Vasa is a craftmanship treasure from the 17th century which reveals a rich history, from life at the shipyard to on board a warship.
