In the beautiful area of Djurgarden, definitely my favorite area of all of Stockholm, the Vasa Museum is anchored (pun intended). This boat, situated on the island in an elegant building so that when enter, you can see it in its entirety. The most striking characteristic is the state of the boat, despite the many passing centuries. Furthermore, in the vicinity, and along several floors, you can enjoy cabins with miniatures, timepiece clothing, models, and a presentation that explains what life was like on the ship. Admission cost me 9 euros, and I would consider that money very well spent as the Vasa Museum is an authentic journey to the past. It was a tremendously interesting visit where you could never see all of it. If you need to rest for a while, there is a cafe with wonderful views of Stockholm's harbor. It was a delight, and a favorite haunt of the beautiful Swedish capital.
The Stockholm Nordic Museum is a historical and cultural museum, with exhibits on the Swedish habitat, clothes, design and fashion, traditions and cultures, and everyday life in Sweden, both today and at various times in the past. The museum is located on the island of Djurgarden, right in front of the Vasa Museum. The island is also a huge park, so you can visit one of the museums in the morning, stop for a sandwich in the park, enjoy nature, then go to the other museum in the afternoon - or the aquarium or the amusement park, Grona Lund. The Nordic Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11-5. Admission is 7 euros. You can arrive by ferry from Slussen, it will cost 3 euros, and the passage is very nice, but there are also buses (they take quite a bit longer). Exhibits include an exhibition of photos, shoes through the centuries, a textile gallery, and Swedish folk art. It's a fascinating museum, sure to captivate you.
The Nobel Museum (Nobelmuseum in Swedish) is a museum all about the Nobel Prize and the people who have won it from 1901 to today, as well as the life of Alfred Nobel who, after his death, left the money to start the prize fund. Each year people are rewarded for their works in the fields of science, economics, literature, and peace. The museum is in the old building of the Stockholm Stock Exchange, Borshuset, on the north side of the small Stortorget Square, in the historic district of Gamla Stan. The museum preserves the memory of the winners, and has exhibitions, films and lectures on scientific subjects. Winners include such illustrious names as Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill, and Marie Curie. Institutions have also won sometimes, including the United Nations and Doctors Without Borders. The museum costs 60 SEK, 6 euros, there is a discount for seniors and students, a family of 5 goes for 120 SEK. Open from 10 am to 5 pm, and sometimes later in the summer.
Why I love this place so much is because of the beutifull view of the sea that is full of boates that makes me feel on a georgous place outside Sweden in a vacation. The great atmosphere here at Gröna Lund reminds me of an vacation and gets me in a very good mood. I love the fact that there are a lot of people who are happy and are social at Gröna Lund.
