A Stockhoom must: the Vasa Museum

Before you is an actual 225-foot-long galleon from 1628, complete in its details. It has the sculpting on its prow, stern, and a crow’s-nest at the mast top. It was to sail away from the dock, hence, it is fully outfitted with seagoing tools and personal effects. Clothing recovered, with human bones, show how seamen of the time actually dressed. Weapons and cannons look as if they could bark again today.
