Visiting the VASA with my elderly parents

Good morning,
I plan to come this summer from France in order to visit specifically the VASA museum with my elderly parents (both > 80 years old - my father being passionate about old wooden boats) : is there a solution allowing us to buy tickets with a pre-scheduled entrance timing avoiding my parents to queue ?

Thank you for your answer ... and solution !
Kind Regards


  • Dear Alexandre,

    Thank you for your request!

    During the period from May to August, we have many visitors and there can be queues to get inside the Museum. Usually it takes no more than 15-20 minutes to get into the Museum, but we do have less visitors in the afternoon than in the morning.

    There are no speed gates or priority gates. There is a queue for those visitors who buy their tickets in ticket machines, which usually go a little faster than the one paying for their ticket at checkout. Speak to the staff that work by the machines.

    There is no need to buy tickets online in advance as they don't give you any priority in the queues.

    Please contact the booking office at if you have any further questions.

    Very welcome to the Vasa Museum!

  • My name is An Ling, we plan to visit  the VASA at about 13:00 May 25, my mother who is 85 year old, has trouble walking up stairs, is there a wheelchair that I could borrow, we would like to join 13:30 guided tour but I am afraid without wheelchair it is difficult to keep up with the crowd then.
  • Dear An Ling

    Thank you for your question.

    As queues might occur during the lunch hours we recommend coming earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.

    We have two wheelchairs we lend out free of charge, but it not possible to pre book them. Please ask for one in the information desk.

    If you wish to join a guided tour, please inform the information desk as you arrive which tour you would like to join, so that the guide can adapt.

    The 13:30 tour will most probably be very crowded. I recommend the earlier tours (10:30 or 11:30) or the later tour (15:30).
