The Vasa Museum

The most popular museum in Scandinavia is the Vasa Museum which holds a warship that sank in 1628. The ship sank right after being built and was found in 1961 in good condition. It's been preserved and is an awesome sight to see.
This open air museum is full of houses and farms from around Sweden. It's built in a park like setting with farm animals and lots of things to see. Seemed to be targeted to families as well as tourists.

Got to Stockholm where it was very hot out and people were crammed on buses. Put bags in lockers then took a bus to the sites. The first museum was the Vasa ship. Very cool neat video also. Skansen Museum was hot-like a folk museum-we did not stay long because it was not interesting to us. Walked around the city, looked for food....that was about it.

Gamla Stan

If you take a ferry out to Finland, you'll pass thousands of small islands on between the two cities. A boat trip through this area is a popular thing to do and very scenic for sure.
Where Stockholm began, the town center is full of Medieval streets and buildings.
