Welcome to the press preview of Vrak – Museum of Wrecks on 16 September.

On 23 September, a new maritime archaeology museum is opening on Djurgården in Stockholm.
 The new museum Vrak – Museum of Wrecks allows visitors to dive into the past with the help of various digital solutions. On the seafloor of the Baltic Sea there is a unique cultural heritage, wrecks and other historical relics from the Stone Age to present time. Vrak is the sister museum of the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, and part of the government agency the Swedish National Maritime and Transport Museums.

In the first exhibition, the visitor is brought to the bottom of the Baltic Sea with the help of an immersive film experience. The mythical wreck “Resande Man” is shown in scale 1:1 and presented using a hologram and the visitor experiences the feeling of moving through an old shipwreck. The museum is housed in an old boat hangar designed by architect Paul Hedqvist in 1941. The architectural firm Fahlander Arkitekter have carefully redeveloped the building with sustainable materials like concrete, oak, steel and glass, which have associations with the sea, ships and the seafloor.

Vrak – Museum of Wrecks
Vrak – Museum of Wrecks is a new museum about the Baltic Sea’s unique wrecks and cultural heritage, and a sister museum to the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Nowhere else in the world are there as many well-preserved shipwrecks as in the Baltic Sea. Vrak brings their stories to the surface, while leaving the wrecks themselves and their objects on the seafloor where they are best preserved. The new museum serves as a hub for wrecks, new discoveries and research throughout the Baltic Sea region. 

Address: Djurgårdsstrand 17, Djurgården, Stockholm.
