Arguably Europe’s most extraordinary maritime museum is the Vasa Museet, in Stockholm, Sweden. It’s the home of King Gustavus Adolphus’ short-lived flagship, the Vasa, which on 10 August 1628, flooded and abruptly sank minutes into her maiden voyage. The root cause of the catastrophe was a flawed ship design.
