Special Past Access DYK: Epic Fail of the Sinking of the Vasa
The sinking of the Vasa in 1628 was a tragic and expensive failure by the Swede navy.
On her maiden test run in August of that year, this top-heavy flagship took on water after opening the canon gunports and sank within minutes.
Found nearly 330 years later, the Vasa was brought to the surface and underwent decades of conservation to be placed in its own state-of-the-art museum in Stockholm.
This epic fail turned out to be a historic gift for millions of visitors to this amazing museum.
