Ways to get to the Vasa Museum

We will be in Old Town, Stockholm.  
Is there a ferry to go over to the museum or is taxi best?  We'd prefer a ferry but if it doesn't exist, please let us know the best way to get there.


  • Dear Jeremiah,

    Thank you for your question!

    There is a ferry (Djurgårdsfärjan) from Old Town to Djurgården, the Island where the Vasa Museum is situated, every 15 to 10 minutes during daytime in the summer. I definitely recommend you to get the ferry to get here.

  • We will be in Stockholm on a cruise ship, but are not taking an organized shore excursion. What is the best way for us to get to the VASA museum from the cruise ship port?

  • Dear Carolyn

    To answer your question we need to know by which port you mean.

    In this forum question you find different options from different ports.

  • We will be mooring at Nynashamn. What is the best way from there please. Thanks

  • Dear Kevin

    Thank you for your question.

    You can take the north-going train 42X from Nynäshamn station.
    After about one hour you arrive in Stockholm (station: Stockholm Central) and can take the tram 7 (from stop: T-centralen) towards Djurgården Waldemarsudde.

    The stop is called Djurgårdsbron. If you cross the bridge you will see the masts we have on the roof.

  • What Metro Line/Stop is best to visit the Museum?
    Steve Carpenter
  • Dear Steve

    With metro you exit at Karlaplan and walk about 15 minutes.

    If you take bus 69 or 76 the stop is called Djurgårdsbron.
    If you take the tram or bus 65 the stop is called Nordiska museet/Vasamuseet/Junibacken. You can also exit at Djurgårdsbron.

    Best regards.

  • I'm also from a cruise ship wanting to cross to the Vasa Museet. We're next to the little blue ferry stop at Bathallplatze. Can I get the ferry from there? What time do the ferries start in the morning? and how much would it cost?
    David Blackwell
  • Dear David,
    I cannot find any information regarding the blue ferry stop "Båthallsplats", thus I do not know if below answer can help you.

    However, among public transport in Stockholm there is ferries that will take you to the Vasa Museum, to be more precise Gröna Lund, and from there you can walk to the Vasa Museum.

    If you download the SL-app (SL stands for Stockholm Lokaltrafik = public transport) you can search for the best way to go to the Vasa Museum with public transport.

    Good luck and welcom to the Vasa Museum!

  • I can’t seem to find the app that was mentioned to find transportation to Vasa Museum.  I can’t find one called “Stockholm lokaltrafik”.   Most seem to be only bus or subway.  Is there a cost for the app?

  • Dear Jennie,

    Have you tried too search "SL"? Maybe try "SL-Journey planner and tickets" or "SL-reseplanerare och biljetter"

    The icon has SL written inside a circle, and two upside down arches under the circle. The background colour is dark grey.
