Great museum, you can listen audio tour guide from your phone in the meantime. They leveled story of the ship, and supported the exhibition with items from inside of the ship. I loved it.

An amazing day - more than we could have expected, we had such a great time as a couple on a private ice skating tour of one of the frozen lakes north of Stockholm. Highly recommended

They were very accomodating to change of bookings and providing all equipment. Thanks.

Good and organised museum with loads of interesting facts and display.
