The Vasa Museum on the island of Djurgarden is the one sight in Stockholm that most cruisers visit. The best way to travel from Gamla Stan (Old Town) Stockholm to Djurgarden is via one of the summer ferries.

Djurgarden has three major sites--the Vasa Museum, the Skansen Open-Air Folk Museum, and the Nordic Museum. The Swedish government has protected the island of Djurgarden as a national park. The three fascinating museums are all within easy walking distance of each other. Let's take a look at the Vasa Museum, Skansen Open-air Folk Museum, and the Nordic Museum.
