An absolute amazing experience. The guide was so knowledgable about everything and so professional and took great care of me. I had a great time doing ice climbing. Funny thing: I'm scared of heights and climbing has always terrified me. Yet - somehow - I ended up 25+ feet up on a waterfall with no fear whatsoever. In fact - did it three times that day :) Thank you again. Regards, The tall girl from Dubai

Amazing experience,I would recommend anyone interested in historical and archeological projects it's aust whilst in Stockholm. Lots of information,great accessibility and super clean facilities, to end it all the cafe has amazing food!

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.
