I have just arrive from Stockholm and from my point of view you can see the city and the Vasa Museum in 2 days. If you want to see the Royal Palace, or the zoo etc...3 days would be better. We took a tour around the archipielago and it was really nice. The Vasa Museum price is about 10 euros, and there are some discounts for students and +65.

If you are looking for a Hotel, don't book at Norrtull Hotel it is more like a bargain hostel but with a hotel price tag!!!!

I planned on 1 hour at the Wasa museum, but spent half a day there.

It can easily be done in one hour, but if you want to read every little bit about the ship and everything you will need more time.

I think you need about three hours...because there is a short film, a lot of information, models etc... If you always feel cold (like me) remember to bring a sweater, it's chilly, and wet.

Last year it was 80 Kronen. (it might be raised a little bit, but not massive I think). I spend about 4 hours at the museum. Of course it depends on your interests if you would or wouldn't like it, but I think it is an amazing museum. As far as I know it's the only ship, that is conserved this way and on display in this fashion. It's not only the ship, that there is too see, but also other things, that have to do, with the ship, and the period.

The film is a must-see, and can be seen in a couple of languages (or is subtitled), a tour is free, and will also make you notice a couple of things (although, some things you will also see in the film).

You could spend a day in this area of town (Djurgarden) easily, because except the Vasa museum, you are close to Skansen and Tivoli, and not too far from Prinz Eugens Waldemarsudde.
