Vasa Museum Temporarily Closed
Between 18 March and 30 April, the Vasamuseum is closed due to renovation.
The building was constructed 20 years ago, designed for 600, 000. The number of visitors exceeded this figure right from the start and the museum now boasts more than 1,000,000 visitors annually, which makes it one of the most popular tourist attractions in Sweden.
The Vasa Museum, which at present has a maximum capacity of 1, 600 visitors at a time, will be able to welcome 2, 000 visitors at a time after the reconstruction and extension. With that, it is intended that queues will be reduced during the peak season and that hundreds of thousands of tourists will have a better museum experience, regardless of functional ability.
