Museum in 1964

Our family traveled extensively during the summers of 1964 and 1965. I have a recollection of seeing the Vasa, but it would have been long before the current museum (which is beautiful, by the way).

  • Yes, there was a museum for Vasa before the one where the ship is housed today. It was a temporary museum, called the Wasavarvet Museum, and it was opened in 1961. Inside it the public could follow the preservation of Vasa. A photo of it can be found on Wikipedia,

    In 1988 Vasa was moved to the new building, the Vasa Museum, which is purpose built and the permanent museum for the ship.
    Some parts of the old museum remain and today house another museum - the Aquaria Water Museum.
