Vasa height

Hi ,

I always wonder if the height of the mast that you seeing from outside Vasa museum building is the actually ships height when it was intact .......

Thank you for that great museum .....


  • Hi Christos,
    and thank you for your question. You are right, the three mast on our museums roof is suppose to symbolize the total height of the ship when all the mast where up. The main mast (the tallest one in the middle) was about 52 meters from the keel to the top.
    I am glad you enjoyed our museum.
    Best regards
